Teigne (also : Teign, Tègne, Teeñ, Tin or Tinou in Serer language) was the title of the monarch of the pre-colonial Kingdom of Baol,[1] now part of present-day Senegal.

After the demise of the Serer paternal dynasties of Baol, the title was retained by the Wolofs. The first Teignes of Baol were Serers which included members of the Joof dynasty, such as : Boureh Joof (Bouré Diouf in French speaking Senegal) and Guidiane [probably Jegan] Joof (Guidiane Diouf), during the Wagadou period, and Maad Patar Kholleh Joof the conqueror. The Faal (or Fall in French) dynasty, the last paternal dynasty, were Wolofized Black Moors who came to the throne after the Battle of Danki in 1549.[2][3] The last Teigne of Baol was Tanor Ngone Jeng (Tanor Goñ Dieng), who reigned from 1890 to 3 July 1894.[4]
