King Sahle Selassie of Shewa

Born in 1795 as the younger son of Meridazmatch Wossen Seged of Shewa, he had outmanuvered his elder
brother Bakure for the princely throne of Shewa upon their father's death in 1813. With the aid of his Abichu
Oromo allies was able to consolidate Shewan rule over the Tulama Oromo and over the districts of Bulga and
Karayu extending his rule into Arsi and Gurage. After ensuring that the Wollo Oromo areas to his north would
act as a buffer between his principality and the Yejju domains of the Imperial Regent Ras Ali II, Sahle Selassie
abandoned his old titles of Ras and Meridazmatch proclaiming himself King of Shewa, Yifat, and the Oromo
and Gurage people. The Emperor in Gondar aquieced to this new title although he had little ability to do
otherwise. It was however significant that the increasingly powerful head of the junior branch of the Imperial
Solomonic dynasty should adopt the title of King at a time that the head of the senior Gondar line (the
Emperor) was little more than a puppet of northern warlords. Sahle Selassie and his heirs would henceforth be
regarded as possible contenders for the Imperial throne itself. This ambition would be realized when his
grandson became Emperor Menelik II.

King Sahle Selassie was close to his mother, Woizero Zenebework, ruler of the districts of Menz and Tegulet,
and she exercised considerable power during his reign and the reign of his son Haile Melekot. He was married
to the equally formidable Woizero Bezabish who ruled over the districts of Yifat and Bulga. The two queens
remained powerful forces in Shewa well into the reign of his successor. He was succeeded as King of Shewa by
his son Haile Melekot. Sahle Selassie, Nigus of Shewa was the grandfather of Emperor Menelik II, and great
grandfather of both Empress Zewditu and Emperor Haile Selassie. He fathered scores of children by many
women, making the House of Shewa the largest of all the branches of the Imperial Solomonic Dynasty.
Lij Kassa conquers Amhara, Gojjam, Tigray and Shoa.
Ras Kassa becomes Emperor Tewodros II.  Emperor Téwodros II (baptized as Sahle Dingil) (c. 1818 – April 13,
1868) was the Emperor of Ethiopia from 1855 until his death.  Born Kassa Haile Giorgis, but was more
regularly referred to as Kassa Hailu (meaning "restitution" and "His [or the] power"). His rule is often placed as
the beginning of modern Ethiopia, ending the decentralized Zemene Mesafint (Era of the Princes).


Dejazmatch Alemayehu Tewodros, often referred to as HIH Prince Alemayehu or Alamayou of Ethiopia (23
April 1861 – 14 November 1879) was the son of Emperor Tewodros II of Ethiopia. Emperor Tewodros II
committed suicide after his defeat by the British, led by Sir Robert Napier, at the Battle of Magdala in 1868.
Alemayehu's mother was Empress Tiruwork Wube.

The young prince was taken to Britain, under the care of Captain Tristram Speedy. The Empress Tiruwork had
intended to travel to Britain with her son following the death of her husband, but died on the way to the coast
leaving Alemayehu an orphan. Initially, Empress Tiruwork had resisted Captain Speedy's efforts to be named
the child's guardian, and had even asked the commander of the British forces, Lord Napier, to keep Speedy
away from her child and herself. After the death of the Empress however, Napier allowed Speedy to assume
the role of caretaker. Upon the arrival of the little Prince's party in Alexandria however, Speedy dismissed the
entire Ethiopian entourage of the Prince much to their distress and they returned to Ethiopia.

While staying at Speedy's home on the Isle of Wight he was introduced to Queen Victoria at her home at
Osborne House. She took a great interest in his life and education. Alamayehu spent some time in India with
Speedy and his wife, but the government decided he should be educated in England and he was sent to
Cheltenham to be educated under the care of Thomas Jex-Blake, principal of Cheltenham College. He moved to
Rugby School with Jex-Blake in 1875, where one of his tutors was Cyril Ransome (the future father of Arthur
Ransome). In 1878 he joined the officers' training school at the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, but he was
not happy there and the following year went to Far Headingley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, to stay with his old
tutor Cyril Ransome. Within a week he had contracted pleurisy and died after six weeks of illness, despite the
attentions of Dr Clifford Allbutt of Leeds and other respected consultants.

Queen Victoria mentioned the death of the young prince in her diary, saying what a good and kind boy he had
been and how sad it was that he should die so far from his family. She also mentioned how very unhappy the
prince had been, and how conscious he was of people staring at him because of his colour.

Queen Victoria arranged for Alamayehu to be buried at Windsor Castle. The funeral took place on 21
November 1879, in the presence of Cyril Ransome, Chancellor of the Exchequer Stafford Northcote, General
Napier, and Captain Speedy. A brass plaque in the nave of St George's chapel commemorates him and bears the
words "I was a stranger and ye took me in", but Alamayehu's body is buried in a brick vault outside the chapel.
Emperor Haile Selassie of Ethiopia arranged for second plaque commemorating the Prince to be placed in the
chapel as well.

In 2007, the Ethiopian government requested the return of Alemayehu's remains for reburial in Ethiopia.

THE BATTLE OF SEGALE (October 27th 1916)

[The indictment against Lij Iyasu, which was read out:

'The Christian faith, which our fathers had hitherto carefully retained by fighting for their faith with the
Muslims and by shedding their blood, Lij Iyasu exchanged for the Muslim religion and aroused commotion in
our midst; in order to exterminate us by mutual fighting he has converted to Islam and therefore, we shall
henceforth not submit to him; we shall not place a Muslim king on the throne of a Christian king; we have
ample proof of his conversion to Islam:

(1) He married four wives claiming: "the Qur'an permits it to me". Of these wives one is the daughter of Abba
Jifar of the Jimma nobility; the second is the daughter of Hajj Abdullahi of the Harar nobility; the third is the
daughter of Abu Bakr of the Adal nobility; the father of the fourth, Dejatch Djote, became a Christian and
baptized his daughter; while she lived under her baptismal name Askala Maryam, it was to Dejatch Djote's
daughter that he (Lij Iyasu) later on, after his conversion to Islam, gave the Muslim woman's name of Momina.

(2) He built a mosque at Jijijiga with government funds and gave it to the Muslims.

(3) At that time he sent to Mahazar Bey, the foreigner [Turkish] consul resident at Addis Ababa - as he was
celebrating the Ramadan Feast - Our Ethiopian flag (on which there was written "The Lion of the Tribe of
Judah hath prevailed (Moa Anbessa Ze Imnegede Yehudah) and adorned with the sign of the Cross) on which
he had caused to be written the following words ( in Arabic): "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the
messenger of Allah".

(4) He wore Somali Muslim clothes and the Muslim Turban, held the Islamic rosary, and was seen to prostate
himself in the mosque.

(5) He was seen praying and reading the Qur'an having it transcribed in Amharic characters.

(6) On the headgear of his special guards he had embroidered the legend, "there is no God but Allah"

(7) H.H. Ras Makonnen had built a church into a dwelling for the clergy, giving the Muslims a place in
exchange; then 32 years later he ( Lij Iyasu) expelled the clergy and restored it to the Muslims.

(8) When a girl was born to him he saw to it that she would grow up learning the Muslim religion, and gave
her to the Muslim Madame Hanafi and said: "Bring her up on my behalf."

(9) He despised the descent of Menelik II, which comes direct from Menelik I, and claimed to be descended
from the Prophet Muhammad: assembling the great Muslim sheikhs he spent the day convincing them of his
genealogical calculations.

(10) The day on which our great king, Emperor Menelik, who had bequeathed him the throne, died, instead of
mourning and of arranging lamentations he went out horse-riding to Jan Meda and spent the day playing
combat games. He forbade Menelik's body to be buried with dignity and thus it has similar proof (against Lij

Therefore having deposed him (Lij Iyasu), we have placed on the throne Wayzaro Zawditu, Emperor Menelik's
daughter. We have appointed Dejazmatch Tafari, the son of H.H. Ras Makonnen, Crown Prince, with the rank of
Ras, and Regent of the Empire.']


The Battle of Segale, fought on 27 October 1916, was a victory for the supporters of Empress Zawditu over
those of Iyasu V. Henze states that "Segale was Ethiopia's greatest battle since Adwa" (1896).


The nobility of Ethiopia had grown uneasy with the rule of Iyasu V. At last, when Iyasu failed to observe the
important religious holiday of Meskel in the capital Addis Ababa, instead he remained in the predominantly
Moslem city of Harar, they decided to strike. A number of nobles met 17 days later on 27 September, and
convinced Abuna Mattewos to excommunicate Iyasu on the accusation that he converted to Islam, then
announced on the steps of the Palace that Iyasu had been deposed in favor of Empress Zawditu.

The plotters had sent orders to Harar that Iyasu would be arrested, which went astray. Sources dispute exactly
what Lij Iyasu's did next. Bahru Zewde states that Iyasu started to march on Addis Ababa, but his advance was
blocked at Mieso by 15,000 soldiers and he fled into the Afar desert. Harold Marcus, drawing on the reports
filed by the European diplomats, states that instead Lij Iyasu had sent one force towards the capital under
Dejazmach Gebre, and another, raised from loyal Afars and Somalis, to secure Dire Dawa; the Dejazmach went
over to the opposing army and the Afars and Somalis deserted before reaching the city, and Iyasu fled with his
bodyguard to Jijiga. Aleqa Gebre Igziabiher Elyas's narrative supports Marcus in that Iyasu fled to the desert
where his Afar supporters helped him. In either case, Harar failed him as a base of support and he took refuge
in the desert.


His father and most important supporter, Negus Mikael of Wollo, was slow to march south upon the capital
and restore Iyasu to the throne, not moving until the middle of October. Yet, when he did, the Negus crushed
the troops sent against him. On 18 October, Negus Mikael's troops defeated an advance force of 11,000 men in
Menz and killed their leader, Ras Lul Seged. Under the command of the regent Ras Tafari (the future Emperor
Haile Selassie) and Fitawrari Habte Giyorgis, a force estimated to number between 25,000 and 35,000
marched north to do battle and the two armies came to face each other at Segale on the 22nd.

Afterwards, the then Ras Tafari stated that because "bloodshed among Ethiopians themselves is extremely
saddening, I arranged that monks from the monasteries of Debre Libanos and Zequala ... should come with
their crosses to request Negus Mikael to go back to Wollo without making war." Negus Mikael is said to have
simply arrested these emissaries, ignoring their message.

Negus Mikael opened the battle early in the morning, but his artillery was put out of commission by his
opponent and his machine-gunners ran out of ammunition. Aleqa Gebre-Igziabiher Elyas, drawing from
eyewitness accounts, describes the battle opening with a charge of Negus Mikael's infantry and cavalry.
However, the Shewan troops had been trained to fire their rifles in rows and from the prone position, allowing
them to fire in quick succession "and felled them like leaves." Then the Shewans attacked, "and they pursued
the army of Wello and took captives. And particularly the Shewan cavalry went from valley to valley" and
overran Negus Mikael's camp." At 3:25 pm, one of the Shewan officers telephoned to the capital that they had
won the battle. "The dead are very numerous on both sides." Aleqa Gebre-Igziabiher Elyas explains one cause
for this bloodshed was that the two sides did not differ in dress or insignia, and could only distinguish each
other by their passwords, which were not always well known to the soldiers. Bahru Zewde succinctly
comments: "The Wallo forces were defeated. Negus Mikael was captured. The coup of 27 September was now
sanctioned by blood."


Negus Mikael defended himself in his corral until his defeat was undeniable, when he surrendered. Amnesty
was offered to the soldiers from the losing side, provided that they swear loyalty to the new Empress.
However, two of Negus Mikael's chief lieutenants escaped the battle unvanquished: Ras Yimer, who managed
to rally some of the defeated army and lead them to Dessie; and Fitawrari Sirah Bizu, who discarded his
weapons and battle-dress and slipped from the battlefield in the garb of a sick priest with a single servant, and
met up with Ras Yimer in Dessie. Dejazmach Gebre Igziabiher who had been a lukewarm supporter of Negus
Mikael sat out the battle, but when the Negus surrendered and he attempted to flee back to Welo, the peasants
of Aliyu Amba ambushed and killed him.

As for the deposed Lij Iyasu, he had just reached Ankober by the time the battle ended; he led his small army
of 6,000 into the desert back to Dessie, arriving there 8 November and joining with Ras Yimer and Fitawrari
Sirah Bizu. When the Imperial army reached that town 10 December, he fled further north to the old
stronghold of Amba Mariam, further away from the center of power.

Ethiopia, represented by Regent Ras Tafari, becomes a member of the League of Nations (An international
organization formed in 1920 to promote peace and co-operation between countries).
    Your Highness’ presence amongst us is apt to
strengthen and to renew those memories of 1600
years.  Two Greeks, the sons of Meropius the
merchant, Frumentius and Aedesius, were taken
prisoner at the Ethiopian seaboard and thus
entered the country. They founded the Church of
Ethiopia by teaching the country’s inhabitants and
by becoming apostles of the faith.Your Highness,
the affection which binds the two countries
together began at that time. In the year 325
Athanasius, the great bishop of Christian Greece,
bestowed at Alexandria the name of founder of the
Church of Ethiopia upon Frumentius and did so
with great glory. And he also anointed him bishop
of the Ethiopian Church. We are aware that Ethiopia’
s success in guarding her independence at all times
arises from the mountains which have been given
to her by nature and which separate her from all
the other African countries. It is proper to say that
Ethiopia has been the bastion of Christianity for
more than a millennium among the savages and
pagans in the arid desert. Homer said of the
Ethiopians that they excelled above others.
Diodorus speaks of their virtue. He admires their
fight for their freedom.

At the time of Alexander the Great and his heirs
Greek culture had entered Ethiopia and had opened
a new road of civilization. It left written monuments
(a map) which demonstrate its progress. The
Ptolemies and the Byzantine kings desired the
Ethiopian people to establish a basis and to extend
their rule up to the Red Sea. When Byzantium
fought with the Persians, it threw into the battle the
might of the Ethiopians. Your Highness' country
was a crossroads and meeting point of the civilized
nations in the Mediterranean and Indian areas.
Since the Greeks were at that time held in great
honour in Ethiopia, the Ethiopian kings are said to
have known the Greek language.... Monsieur

***This day in Ethiopian history, October 7, 1928: The crowning of Ras Teferi Makonnen as Negus Teferi

It would be the 1st time in Ethiopia's history that a King ruled alongside a ruling Monarch; who in this case
was Empress Zaditu, daughter of Emperor Menelik II. Due to Ras Teferi's knowledge of foreign affairs, and
understanding of the changing times, certain of the nobles and military decided that it would be in Ethiopia's
best interest to have H.R.H. Ras Teferi rule alongside Her Imperial Majesty.

Blessed 89th Anniversary of the Crowning of H.H. Crown Prince Regent , known at that time as Ras Tafari
Makonnen and Princess Woizero Menen . 7th Oct 1928.

Taken from the Autobiography of Emperor Haile Selassie I.

About Our receiving the dignity of kingship without ceasing to be Heir Apparent.

....Subsequently, the ministers and nobles living at Addis Ababa as well as the army commanders and all men
holding office reached agreement unanimously and declared: ‘Worthless common people rise up from time to
time against our Crown Prince and create upheaval; perhaps on some future occasion, when similar
disturbances arise, we may fail to prevent internal bloodshed; it is, therefore, necessary to think of means of
restraining such com­motion. For this purpose it is best to act as follows: Empress Zawditu should have solely
the honour of the Crown and the Throne—as was established when first she succeeded to the reign, leaving
the task of government entirely to the Crown Prince, while the latter should carry out on his sole authority the
whole business of government (as was defined and initiated on 17th Maskaram 1909 = 27th September 1916),
without consulting the Empress and without obtaining her permission. In order that his authority should
possess force and be respected, it would be best for us to arrange that he should attain the dignity of Kingship.'
Once they had decided this, they assembled in the wide square within the palace precincts and approached
Empress Zawditu in writing: ‘May it please you to have H.H. Crown Prince Tafari pro­claimed King and have
him carry out, on his sole authority, any government business without having to consult anyone.'

Empress Zawditu summoned her special counsellors, and when they proffered her advice it seemed to them
an extremely difficult matter. In truth, I myself felt it to be very difficult. For, once proclaimed King of some
large part of Ethiopia, I could not go there or else the Empress would need another Regent. As King I could
scarcely reside at Addis Ababa, for it was not customary for two Kings to reside in one city. She therefore sent
word to them to be given time in which to ponder the matter.

This proposal by the people was awkward not only for Empress Zawditu but even for myself. I therefore
summoned three men from the assembled nobles and despatched them to the people with this message: ‘It
would be good if the idea which you have had that the work of government be accomplished by one man's sole
and undivided design could be carried out, but it would be as well if the proposal as regards the Kingship were
not raised. Arrange for this matter to be dropped, for it might appear that I had incited you in the desire to
become King; it is God alone who knows that I am not involved in this affair but people do not know.' They
sent word back to Us: ‘We cannot go back on it, for the reason we have acted was that we were mindful of the
honour of our realm and the benefit and peace of the people—without favouring anyone.' We therefore kept

Later on, when they saw the reply which had reached them from Empress Zawditu asking for time to ponder
the matter, they presented to her a further written submission which all of them signed and sealed: The fact
that Empress Zawditu was asking for time to think about it was simply to obtain time in order to issue a
refusal after consultation with her friends who follow her own way of thinking and who do not like modern
conditions; or to bring about, on these grounds, a situation in which revolution and civil war would be created.
'However that may be’, their submission ran, ‘we are determined to do what is necessary, being assembled
here and not intending to disperse unless you give us the reply today.'
Moreover, the people of the city did not know the true reason why the ministers, nobles, and army
commanders had assembled in the palace grounds, and it needed very little for them to start a revolution.
Empress Zawditu caused the declaration which had been presented to her with signatures and seals, to be
read; and, when she had understood it, she thought it would be preferable to accept their counsel in order to
avoid bloodshed. She then directed that the following written announcement be read out to them: 'It is my
wish that the Crown Prince be crowned as King on a date determined by you on the basis of the advice
tendered by you.' Consequently security and calm returned. Thereupon they pushed each other forward
penetrating as far as the internal court­yard and clapped hands with joy. Then they conveyed their thanks
saying: ‘Long live H.M. the Empress! May Ethiopia live for ever.' They then went back to their homes.
The next morning they assembled once more and claimed that it would be better for this affair of the Kingship
to be accomplished within three days, lest second thoughts should ruin this matter if further delay were to
occur. We convinced them, however, of the impossibility of a thing like Kingship being carried out within two
or three days and, furthermore, of the need to inform each of the governments of our neighbours, so that their
representatives might come and take part in our joy. It was, therefore, decided that the coronation should take
place one month hence, on 27th Maskaram 1921 (= 7th October 1928).

As there was rejoicing about Empress Zawditu’s approval that We were to be proclaimed King, and since the
British, French, and Italians, who possess colonies in our neighbourhood, were delighted, the British
Government despatched to Addis Ababa the Governor of Berbera, Mr. Kittermaster, the French Govern­ment
sent the Governor of Jibuti, M. Chapon Baissac, and the Italian Government the Governor of Eritrea, Signor
Corrado Zoli.

When everything that was required for this festival of Kingship had been prepared, the whole great ceremony
which is enacted for crowning a King of the Ethiopian Empire took place on 27th Maskaram 1921 (= 7th
October 1928); We received the crown from the hands of Empress Zawditu, and the festive day passed off with
dignity .
