Maad Ndaah Njemeh Joof[1] (Serer : Maad Ndaah Njeeme Juuf or Mad Ndaah Njeeme Juuf[2]) is one of the patriarchs of the Joof family, himself the medieval King of Laah (or Lâ) in Baol now part of independent Senegal.[3] He ruled from the late 13th century to the early 14th century, c. 1290. His descendants from the branch of Maad Patar Kholleh Joof (the conqueror) ruled the pre-colonial Kingdoms of Sine, Saloum and Baol, from the 14th century to 1969. The last king of Sine and Saloum (Maad a Sinig Mahecor Joof and Maad Saloum Fode N'Gouye Joof respectively) died in 1969. After their deaths, the Serer States of Sine and Saloum were incorporated into independent Senegal.[4][5][6] His descendants went on to found three royal houses :

The Royal House of Boureh Gnilane Joof (Serer: Mbind Bure Nilaan[7], other: Keur Bouré Gnilane) - founded by Jaraff Boureh Gnilane Joof[5] The Royal House of Jogo Siga Joof (Serer: Mbind Jogo Siga[7], other : Keur Diogo Siga) - founded by Maad a Sinig Jogo Gnilane Joof[5] The Royal House of Semou Njekeh Joof (Serer: Mbind Sem-Jike[7], other: Keur Semou Djiké or Keur Semou Ndiké) - founded by Maad Semou Njekeh Joof[5]

Maad Ndaah Njemeh is one of the most significant figures in Serer and Senegambian dynastic history.[3] He stems from the royal line of Lamane Jegan Joof, the 11th century founder and King of Tukar. See also[edit]
