|Commanders and leaders|
|Asantehene Osei Tutu||Denkyirahene Ntim Gyakari|
Prior to this battle the Denkyirahene Ntim Gyakari thought he was doing well in the war, having driven the Ashanti (Asante) forces from Adunkra, Aboatem and Aputuogya. However this was all part of Osei Tutu's plan to ambush the forces of Denkyira.
At Feyiase the full force of Asante fell upon the Denkyiran forces, and they were routed. Ntim Gyakari was killed and the power of Denkyira was broken.
