Africans came to India in different circumstances through the ages. They played a vital role in the Socio-political and Economic life of various dynasties. They came as sailors, traders, soldiers and sometimes, as slaves and were absorbed in the military and administrative services. Their involvement in the court-politics increased so much sometimes that they emerged as king-makers also. In the Janjira and Sachin kingdoms they rose from king-makers to Emperors.
