Most Ga live in the southeastern coastal region of the country, around the capital of Accra, which the Ga founded in the 16th century as a trading port. The traditional Ga kingdom of Nkran gives Accra its name. Nkran state has been ruled by a succession of kings known as Ga Mantse since its founding in 1510.In more recent times, Teteh-Quarshie is given credit for bringing the Cocoa to Ghana in the 19th century. Today Cocoa is one of Ghana's main exports and Ghana is the second leading exporter of the crop in the world.
