Abstract:

"This is a classic and important work on one of the most revered and historic personalities on the most impressive period of the modern history of Ethiopia. Not only was Empress Taytu a highly regarded and widely recognized Ethiopian patriot that fought a valiant war against the invading Italian Empire of the late 19th century, but she was also an exemplar and unique and popular leader that continues to inspire and empower Ethiopians of subsequent generations up to the present. Empress Taytu was the most powerful woman on the continent of Africa in her time, and Menilek was the emperor who brought Ethiopia to world attention with his defeat of Italy in 1896. Diplomatic and internal maneuvering for power and life at the court in Ethiopia between the years 1883 and 1910 are set out in this book in vivid detail and with sound scholarship.--Zewde Gabre-Sellassie, D. Phil. (Oxon) Former Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Ethiopia"--Page 4 of cover.
