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.

[Thus concludes the List of Ethiopian Kings forwarded by H.I.H. Ras Makonnen, now H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I]

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

Ethiopia is awesome... I mean, Ive never been but the country with its history and people have such a quality that i find irresistable. As soon as i get a chance I will go over and check it out, I think the landscapes of the country and the sentiments of the people there hearken back with echoes to such an early point of humanity, and maybe humanities first verifiable connection with the divine.

I dont know why the OP posted this, but cheers, it serves no purpose other than to set my imagination rolling, but for that alone I thank you

Let's find out what the point is...

Here's where the list comes from:

http://www.africaresource.com/rasta/sesost...ile-selassie-i/

Here's another snippet from a rastalivewire site too:

The whole Canaanite area was also called “Aram”, and its inhabitant “Arameans.” hence the language they spoke came to be known as ‘Aramaic.’

http://www.africaresource.com/rasta/sesost...y-dr-anu-mauro/

Possibly from the bolded names it refers to the settling of Palestine by the Ethiopians (possibly a Phoenician/Ethiopian settlement) which we can see in the myth of Perseus and Andromeda being located at modern day Jaffa (Joffa), the early Greeks of the Perseidae lineage, including Heracles had this background.

Nimroud, son of Cush (Ethiopia). Nimrod built the Tower of Babel.

Queen Helena...? of Sparta

Electron could be Electryon, who became King of Mycenae and was also a son of Perseus and Andromeda.

All Perseus children also had Danaan blood. (The tribe of Dan?)

Then it looks to me as if the King list corroborates the Greek myth of Perseus and Andromeda, I see Queen Cassiopeia there...

That myth points out the ancient Greeks of the Perseus lineage had Ethiopian blood that derived from a Palestinian area settled by Ethiopians.

Interesting, do you know whether the list is borne out of Greek source material or does it emerge directly from Ethiopia,. sorry I realise this may already be explained but Im actually finding the list itself a bit tricky to read clearly.

Ive been studying geneologies at uni recently, but its been almost entirely anglo-saxon kings tracing their roots back to adam via Woden (which is bizarre in itself), anyway, this makes a nice interesting change.

Yes, I feel a bit like that too, I also think it's one of the most possible locations of Atlantis.

Shame it's in so much economic trouble and social woe, seems almost ironic. :(

The website starts out as such: (written by Haile Selassie 1)

LIST OF ETHIOPIAN KINGS

by

H.I.H. Tafari Makonnen, G.C.B.. G.C.M.G., L.L.D.

June 19, 1922

Published in:

In The Country of The Blue Nile

by C.F. Rey, F.R.G.S.,

Commander of the Order of the Star of Ethiopia

Negro University Press, New York

Translation of Covering Letter

“May this reach my honourable friend Mr. Rey. Greetings to you.

As you ask me to send you the names of the Ethiopian Kings and the history of the Ethiopian Kings of Kings (Emperors), herewith I have taken a copy and send it to you.

After the date of these, if you want more, I will write to you. I am very glad that you have asked me about the history of Abyssinia. I hope that your thoughts should be successful in future.”

Written on the 11th day of Sane, 1914 at the town of Addis Ababa

Interesting as you say for it to not be Greek, that is why I first thought it could be that it indicates a corroboration of the Greek myth. Because it wasn't Greek.

Cheers for the help, makes it clearer, dont know why i didnt see it before

Im just intrigued to know whether Makonnen got his sources, were they greek? biblical? folk stories or a combination of these and others, in that show I mentioned in my last post, there was a guy who lived somewhere in the west bank that was part of the Samaritans, a religion that is best compared to early old testament times judaism (they still sacrifice animals)... Anyway, this dude knew his geneology back to Adam, i think it was 182 generations or so, whether or not it is true it must be amazing to feel such a connection to ones ancestors. It was kind of sad tho, i think there are only 712 samaritans left.

do you guys really not know who Makonnen was ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haile_Selassi...f_Ethiopia#Name

theres about as much chance of that list being historically accurate as there is of Tafari Makonnen being the messiah

What is the exact purpose of this ethiopian dude to post such a long list??

of course he copy pasted without giving the link to the source which is against the TOS.

of course Selassie went around claiming he is the messiah...sorry he didnt save my soul.

So Edude, whats the purpose???

I just told him it was Haile Selassie.

The links between Ethiopia, Greece and the Jews are too many to pass as coincidence.

What Links P??

Selassie's link with Jews is through the mythical connection to solomon and Sheba.

No proof exists.

If i lay /claim connection to solomon and there is just my word for it, who the hell is going to believe it?

The ruling folks in ethiopia wanted a divine royal connection to get some awe, so they coined up this son of solomon thingy.

I had the opportunity to see the obelisk of Axum when it was still in Rome. A compelling piece of art indeed.

Ethiopia was home to one of the most surprising civilizations in the African continent. Some of the granite obelisks at Axum are heavier than any other Egyptian obelisk still standing to date and amongst the heaviest stones ever quarried, yet very little is known of the civilization which built them.

I'm not even talking about Selassie. Even without Selassie they could still make claims.

The connection is back into Biblical times.

The Greek myths speak of numerous ancestral links and travels into Ethiopia.

I believe Moses marries an Ethiopian (Cushite) woman.

Wiki-Link-

"The name Ethiopia itself is Greek and means "of burned face".[1] It is first attested in the Homeric epics but it is unlikely to have referred to any particular nation, but rather, to people of Sub-Saharan African descent in general. The Greek community in Ethiopia is first attested by the presence of craftsmen and sailors in the 18th century (1740) in what was then Abyssinia and played a part in facilitating commerce between the country and Europe.[2][3] The community saw its heyday in the early part of the 20th century with the establishment of the Holy Metropolis of Axum by the Patriarchate of Alexandria in 1908 and of the Greek organizations in Addis Ababa (1918) and Dire Dawa (1921)."

Ancients Greeks do mention Ethiopia a few times throughout mythology.

"Andromeda is the Ethiopian princess who Perseus rescued and married. She became queen of Mycenae and after her death a constellation and galaxy were named after her."

"Andromeda's mother Cassiopea was extremely proud of her own beauty (and this is practically all we know about her). So strong was the pride of this Ethiopian queen that she could not help comparing her beauty with that of the immortal Nereids boasting of being better than they all. For this reason the Nereids were angry and Poseidon sharing their wrath sent a flood and a sea-monster to ravage the land."

"King Cepheus was reluctant to sacrifice his own daughter to the beast but the despondence of the Ethiopians compelled him to do so. For kings wishing very much to be liked by their subjects not seldom obey the irrational pressures of the populace. So King Laomedon of Troy exposed his daughter Hesione to a monster so that she would pay for his own frauds and Agamemnon performed a similar deed when he let his daughter Iphigenia be sacrificed at Aulis."

Let's find out what the point is...

Here's where the list comes from:

http://www.africaresource.com/rasta/sesost...ile-selassie-i/

So the OP doesn't understand three basic TOS: don't re-publish other people's works without proper citation, don't cut and paste huge swaths of texts and don't start threads without an obvious point.

Not necessarily. It is just the most common thought, for now.

If a kingdom of Ethiopia was in Palestine near Jaffa, (as the Perseus myth states) I'd say the connection was there, they may even be the originators of the religion.

Ah, I did not realise that Makonnen was the same dude as Haile Selassi, it all falls into place a bit clearer now.

Yeah, I dont expect it to be historically accurate, possibly it might work as a metaphorical list of peoples or nations. im just wondering whether the list was concocted solely by Selassi or if he based it on other previously existing documents.

umm, im not sure about that, I remember hearing that the biblical land of Ophir was usually equated roughly to the same geographical area as Ethiopia

heres a wiki page for you

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophir#Location

oh yeah, i almost forgot, Sheba too I believe is often equated with Ethiopia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheba
