Krys, does this mean the king of the Abomey tribe? Benin is a republic, isn't it?

Petra, Benin is a republic, but the Kings are still in place, who have governor type powers. So they are part of the government, while the law is made by the parliament. Some of the princes are members of parliament, including the one I met.
