Arrada was an important seaside fort in the former kingdom of Dahomey. Its name is probably a corruption of "Allada". Slaves used to be captured from enemy tribes and passed on to European slavers bound for the Americas, the route which by repute the father of Toussaint L'Ouverture, the famous general who liberated Haiti, had taken.[1]
