ATUWATSE I (OYEOMASAN) DOM DOMINGOS

Eldest son of Olu Atorongboye I. He studied at the Portuguese Premier University of Coimbra from 1600 – 1611; thus becoming the first educated and graduate Olu in the Kingdom. In 1608, he received the order of Christ and was authorized by the King of Portugal to wear the golden dress of the Order. His reign did not witness any significant progress in the Kingdom. That means his European training was not used to the advantage of the Kingdom administratively as envisaged. He married a Portuguese woman on his way back from Portugal. About 1625 – 1643 AD
