Some things to explain to get the context.
I say Hausa the Younger and Hausa the elder because during the colonial period the Hausa were split between Niger and Nigeria much like Italy was. Since the future stories will not feature the other Hausa as much, this will be one of the few times he will be called the Younger.
The Nri Kingdom was an Igbo Kingdom that ran from 948-1911. It was a rich egalitarian society that instead of using military force, used economics to expand its reach. In its height between the 1400s-1679 it was the center of learning and trade in the West African world and the Europeans respected all the Kingdoms, calling them noble people. It was also one of the few kingdoms in Africa that abolished slavery from the beginning.
The Oyo Kingdom was a Yoruba Kingdom that started in the 1400s and ended in the 1900s due to colonialism. It was a more military power but was great in culture to but respected the Nri enough to not attack.
Mandinka is one of the largest ethnic groups in West Africa and once had a great empire that originated in Mali, it stretched from Morocco to upper western Nigeria but collapsed in on itself in 1600 and it had arose in 1200. The Mandinka then retreated to Mali where they shared the land with the Tuaregs and other tribes.
At this time period Islam was running rampant throughout Africa with many Portuguese, Spanish and English missionaries trying to stamp it out. The Hausa kingdom at this time was very powerful but espoused the idea of tolerance to all others and it saw no reason to attack either Yoruba or Igbo.
The Fulani are another large group but they are spread all over Africa very thinly so it is hard to give them a proper country context other than there being a lot of Fulani siblings.
On January 1 1900 Sir George Taubman Goldie, then governor of the Royal Niger Company which by then owned Yoruba and Hausa but not Igbo sold all of the deeds to the British Government for 865,000 pounds. This was as a result of France and Prussia/Germany expanding their own colonization efforts aggressively and all three Kingdoms had very rich land. Once it was sold England defeated Igbo with two methods, conversion to Christianity, and military force. Though by that time the Nri Kingdom knew how to make guns, cannons and sloops thanks to the knowledge of trading with other Europeans over the years, they could not withstand the British and they had been on the decline since 1679 so they were broken easily. Nigeria was started in 1911 when the current Eze of the Igbo signed away the land and three years later in 1914 Nigeria's borders were drawn up.
Unlike the 1600s, the 1900s would see a lot of tension as by the 1800s these three had come to dislike each other greatly.
Also the Igbo are in the Southeast of Nigeria, the Yoruba in the southwest and the Hausa in the North.
This is my first time writing a tale like this so I hope it is nicely received.
