The 39th Oba of Benin, Crown Prince Eheneden Erediauwa, was born in 1953. At the death of his father, he was recalled
to Benin Kingdom to assume his role as the first son and heir apparent to the throne of Bini Kingdom.

The Crowned Oba is married to three wives: Princess Iroghama, (Obazuaye N’Erie), Princess Iyayiota, (Obazuwa N’Erie) Princess Ikpakpa (Ohe N’Erie).
It is worthy to note that his official name after his coronation is Oba Ewuare II.
His Royal Highness attended Edo College, Benin City, from 1965 to 1967, and Immaculate Conception Collage (I.C.C), Benin City, from 1968 to 1970, where he obtained his Secondary School Leaving Certificate. 

After obtaining his Secondary School Leaving Certificate in 1970, His Royal Highness proceeded to England, and studied from 1971 to 1972, at South Thames College, South West London, for the General Certificate for Education (G.C.E. Advance Level). 

As a result of the Oba's love for education, he quickly applied for tertiary education and secured admission to study at the University of Wales, Cardiff, Wales, United Kingdom, in 1973, and graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Economics (B.Sc. Econ.) in June, 1977. 

His Royal Highness Crown Prince (Amb.) Eheneden Erediauwa, Edaiken N’Uselu, now knowned as Oba Ewuare II, in a quest to acquire more knowledge, proceeded to America in 1979, where he studied and obtained a Masters Degree in Public Administration (MPA) at Rutgers Graduate School, New York, New Jersey, U.S.A., from 1979 to 1981. 

It is interesting to note that His Royal Highness went further to enroll for a Doctorate degree in International Administration at the University of London, United Kingdom, but had to suspend his thesis due to family commitments.

Worthy of note about the 39th Oba of Benin is the fact that he served the compulsory one year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA), Lagos, in which he is currently a member; and participated in the Graduate Internship at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, U.S.A., as part of a post graduate training in international administration. 

Since 1987, His Royal Highness, has been active in leading positions within the Nigerian business community, especially in the oil and gas industry, and prior to his diplomatic assignments as Nigerian Ambassador to the Kingdoms of Sweden, Norway, Denmark, as well as Republic of Finland, Angola, Italy and Albania, served on the Board of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and many other Company Boards. 

Based on the foregoing, it is very clear that this new Oba of Benin is well armed with education and experience to take his kingdom and the entire people of Edo state to enviable heights. Without any iota of doubt, this marks a new dawn in Benin Kingdom.
