The Ghana or Wagadou Empire existed in West Africa from the 9th to the 13th centuries CE. It takes its name from the king, whose title 'ghana' means 'great warrior'. The Ghana Empire grew rich thanks to the trans-Saharan trade and the goldmines in its territory. The modern Republic of Ghana takes its name from the Ghana Empire, even though the empire was located in what is now Mali and Mauretania.

Initial government is Despotism.
