The image File:NG-KN.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check
A small observation from someone who's otherwise not really able to contribute here, but would it not make sense to merge this page with List of Current Constituent African Monarchs? Currently this page notes that there are a lot of existing subnational monarchies in Africa, but provides no comprehensive list (as noted above), while that page appears to be a relatively comprehensive and well sourced list with little background information. While it could be possible to use that article to create a list of the kingdoms themselves without the accompanying information, that would seem to be needless duplication of information.
Given my relative lack of knowledge, is there a particular reason why these pages are separate, and if so it would be helpful to include this information in this article.
At the very least, there needs to be a direct link to that page on here, it's quite obviously a related topic even if it's eventually decided to be a See Also.
I think the claim made in the very first line, namely that "there are hundreds of monarchies in Africa", is a bit dubious. For one, I'm not sure what makes twistedsifter.com, the source of the claim, a reliable source. It looks like a blog, and it's certainly not authoritative for a political science claim. For another, counting the list of current constituent African monarchs, I get 142; even adding six (three national and three dependencies) still doesn't even get us to 150, much less "hundreds". If there are, in fact, "hundreds" of monarchies in Africa (that means at least 200), where are they? - BiruitorulTalk 03:07, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
