Daniel Lainé's search for the last surviving monarchs of Africa's grandest kingdoms took him all across Africa. He went from Nigeria to Ghana, Zambia to Cameroon — and from the Ivory Coast to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

His resulting photographic tribute to Africa's kings, "Rois d'Afrique," took over three years of investigation, diplomacy — and just plain haranguing to complete.

Although there are hundreds of kings in Africa, Daniel Lainé's book features the kings whose dynasties have had the most impact on African history.
