--- Advertisement ---



The Royal House of Boureh Gnilane Joof (variation : Mbin Boureh Gnilane in Serer[4]) was a royal house founded in the 14th century[5][6] by Jaraff Boureh Gnilane Joof (var : Bouré Gnilane Diouf[6] or Buré Ñilaan[7]). He was a member the Serer tribe, from the pre-colonial Kingdom of Sine now part of independent Senegal.[6][7][8] It was the first royal house founded by the Joof family during the Guelowar period (1350[5] - 1969[3]).[6][7] Boureh Gnilane Joof was a royal prince and a Jaraff (var : Diaraf), a Serer title of nobility with the powers of a Prime Minister. He was neither a Maad a Sinig (king of Sine) nor a Maad Saloum (king of Saloum) but a royal prince who had the title Jaraff bestowed upon him by his cousin and brother-in-law - Maad a Sinig Diessanou Faye (king of Sine).[6] His father Maad Patar Kholleh Joof (the conqueror)[9] was the king of Laa[10] and Teigne of Baol (king of Baol).[6] Boureh's brothers were the first from this house to have succeeded to the throne of Sine during the Guelowar period. His name was adopted in his honour to refer to the first royal house founded by the Joof family during this dynastic period.[6] The Joof family of Sine, from this royal house also ruled in the Kingdom of Saloum (the Joof paternal dynasty of Sine and Saloum)[11] The Joof family also ruled in Baol (the Joof paternal dynasty of Baol).[12][13] From the date of its foundation up to the abolition of the Serer monarchies of Sine and Saloum in 1969,[3] at least ten kings from this house had succeeded to the throne of Sine.[14] As the first royal house of Sine founded by the Joof family in this dynastic period, the Royal House of Boureh Gnilane Joof holds great significance in Senegambian, Joof family and Serer history, because all the subsequent royal houses founded by the Joof family (who ruled in three Senegambian kingdoms[15]) branched out from this royal house.[7]
