There three emperors who shaped Ethiopia into what Haile Sellassie recieved: Teodoros, Iohaness and Menelik. The best advise is to read the books on Ethiopian history, it's all there. Many things which seems problemac today do have roots embeded in the past. Our biggest problem is that we know very little about history. We study it as if history is an academic "subject" -- than history is the story of our present. Why do you think your doctor keep writing down everything? That's the only way we can know where our problems came from. How can we cure anything without the knowledge of the past problems? Do we really believe that our yesterday is dead? We would be able to wake up in the morning if this idea was true...

Trinity Cathedral in Addis Ababa -- go for Ethiopian Study Page!

When I speak about Ethiopia, I face this impossible task to tell the story three thousand years long. There are many wonderful books and websites to learn Ethiopian history -- I have to find a better way to organize it. In fact, I plan to put on this site my notes for the class ANTHR 303 I taught last year. The general outlook of Ethiopian history is a plan for the future, right now read about the Battle of Adwa, fragments from the book Anatoly writes (H.I.M.), historical facts for the chapter "Birth of Tafari." (On the right: Trinity Cathedral in Addis Ababa build by the Italian POW after Menelik's victory at Adwa).

There is new History Directory @ Sellassie Cyber University. All new pages are there. If you have Ethiopian history pages, send us your link -- sellassie@angelfire.com.

MENELIK II

Tafari with Menelik The father of the present size Ethiopia. 1996 was a centenial of Adwa victory, the first war with Italy and the first victory over European power, which put Ethiopia back on the big history map. Did you see From Tafari to Haile Sellassie and 1930 pages?

Or go to 100 years of Adwa
