King Olateru Olagbegi II(1910- 1998) the Olowo of Owo during a photo shoot at his Palace in 1959.

Olagbegi was a prominent Yoruba Traditional ruler that reigned from 1941- 1968 and later between 1993 – 1998. His reign was interrupted and he was exiled due to a fallout during the regional crisis between the two Action Group leaders: Obafemi Awolowo and Samuel Ladoke Akintola. Ironically, the Action Group was launched in his Palace in 1951.
