Second Battle of Jenné

(Redirected from Second Battle of Jenne)

The Second Battle of Jenné was a military engagement between the armies of the Tukulor Empire and the French Third Republic. It was the last major battle in the Franco-Tukulor Wars. The French won a decisive victory, forcing Ahmadu Tall to flee to the Sokoto Caliphate in what is now Nigeria. The already waning Tukulor Empire fell apart as a result.
