(Queen) 7 5806 306
These thirty-five
sovereigns at the time of
Akapta Tsenfa Arad
(ed.: From A.D. 30 to
A.D. 38) had been
christianised by the
Apostle Saint Matthew.
There were few men
who did not believe, for
they had heard the
words of the gospel.
After this Jen Daraba,
favourite of the Queen of
Ethiopia, Garsemat
Kandake (ed.: From A.D.
40 to A.D. 50), crowned
by Gabre Hawariat
Kandake, had made a
pilgrimage to Jerusalem
according to the Law of
Orit (the ancient law),
and on his return Phillip
the Apostle taught him
the gospel, and after he
had made him believe
the truth he sent him
back, baptising him in
the name of the Trinity.
The latter (the Queen’s
favourite), on his return
to his country, taught by
word of mouth the
coming of our Saviour
Jesus Christ and
baptised them. Those
who were baptised, not
having found an Apostle
to teach them the
Gospel, had been living
offering sacrifices to
God according to the
ancient prescription and
the Jewish Law.

XII. SOVEREIGNS OF
ETHIOPIA SUBSEQUENT
TO THE FOREGOING
LIST
Although the list given
me by the Regent
concludes in the year
given as EC 1779, I have
thought it desirable to
bring the tale up to date,
and have completed the
following list from
various sources.
In this connection it
should be noted that for
some fifty years prior to
the reign of the last king
mentioned in the
foregoing list (i.e. since
about 1730 up to the
advent of Theodore in
1855) the kings had
exercised no real power,
and had been murdered,
deposed, restored and
driven out again, or
treated as nonentities by
anyone of the great
Rases of semi-
independent kings who
were strong enough to
maintain themselves
against their rivals, such
as, for example, Ras
Kikael Suhul of Tigre
(1730-80), Ras Guksa of
Amhara, a Galla
(1790-1819), and the
son (Ras Marye) and
grandson (Ras Ali) of
the latter.
In 1813, indeed, no less
than six nominal “Kings
of Kings of Ethiopia”
were all alive, having
been successively
turned out of office by
others.
The names of all these
kings (who were
actually raised to the
throne) are, however,
given below in order to
maintain continuity,
together with the dates
(according to the
western calendar) of
their chequered reigns:
Yasus 1784-88
Takla Haymanot
1788-89
Iskias 1789-95
Baeda Maryam 1795-
97
Junus 1797
Adimo 1797-99
Egwala Sion 1799-1818
Joas 1818-21
Gigar 1821-26
Baeda Maryam III 1826
Gigar (again) 1826-30
Iyasu IV 1830-32
Gabra Kristos 1832
Sahala Dengel 1832-40
Johannes III 1840-41
Sahala Dengel (again)
1841-55
From this period dates
the re-establishment of
the empire, and the
rapid extension of the
powers of its
sovereigns. From then
until to-day they are:
Theodore 1855-68
John IV 1868-89
Menelik II 1889-1913
Lej Yasu 1913-16
Zauditu (Empress) &
Tafari Makonnen
(Regent & Heir) 1916
Negus Tafari Makonnen
(King) 1928-1930
HIM Haile Selassie I
1930-1974
“Ethiopia has existed for
3,000 years. In fact, it
exists ever since the first
man appeared on Earth.
My dynasty has ruled
since the Queen of
Sheba met King
Solomon and a Son was
born of their union. It is
a Dynasty that has gone
thru the centuries and
will go on for centuries
more.”
