Battle of Feyiase
|Battle of Feyiase|
|Ashanti Empire||Kingdom of Denkyira|
|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 Adunku, Abuontem and Aputuogya. However this was all part of Osei Tutu's plan to ambush the Denkyira troops at Feyiase.
At Feyiase the full force of the Asante war machine fell upon the Denkyiran army, and they were routed. Ntim Gyakari was killed by the people of Adunku from Asante Feyiase, and Denkyira's hegemony was broken at Feyiase Akoyem. Feyiase Akoyem is now a part of Bosomtwe District which lies between Aputuogya and Esereso where the war ended.
