Royalcello,

Emperor Zera Yacob I (or Zara Yacob) was born in 1399, became Emperor in 1434 and died in 1468.  He was also known as Emperor Constantinos I (Emperors of Ethiopia often used a second throne name).  He was the son of Dawit (David) I, and Empress Igzi Kebra.  He was preceeded on the throne by several elder brothers and nephews.  He is regarded as  having been the greatest Emperor of the entire medeival period in Ethiopia, and indeed the only Emperors of Ethiopia who are compared in greatness to him are Menelik II and Haile Selassie I. The Emperor Zera Yacob I was married to Empress Tsion Mogasa who bore him his eventual heir, Emperor Beide Mariam I.  Zera Yacob later married Empress Eleni, who although she never bore her husband any children, would become among the most powerful women in Ethiopian history as the Dowager Empress-Regent during the reign of the young Libne Dingel, Beide Mariam's grandson, and great-grandson of her late husband.

Zera Yaqob I sent letters to by the hand of a Sicilian Pietro Rombulo to Pope Nicholas V, and Alfonso V of Aragon.  The Catholic Ecumenical Council of Florence (1438-1445) declared that Emperor Zera Yaqob was the legendary rumored king Prester John.

Here is some data for your monarchist map, Phil... well, actually I am correcting a glaring omission on somebody's part.

Funny how people forget that the Empire of Aksum was usurped by local gentiles who merely kept the Solomonic Dynasty on the throne in name only seeing how, except for Empress Yodit (Hebrew for Judith, just as Zewditu is Amharic for Judith). Yodit was enthroned after the Jews staged a coup through which we temporarily regained the throne in the middle ages, but all the Orthodox monarchs enthroned AFTER the Orthodox uprising in 359-AD until Yodit was enthroned and all the Orthodox monarchs who came after Yodit only had a minimal amount of Solomonic blood so they could technically lay claim to the Solomonic dynasty, but for the most part they were all of gentile stock and their full allegiance was to Orthodox gentiles and this is also very evident in how they treated us Bete Israel people as foreigners SO MUCH so that they even dubbed the Jews, both messianic and not, with an arabic-based racial slur "falasha" meaning "those who do not belong" while they keep our Holy Ark in their possession and have one of our Levites as its guardian generation after generation, such as Gebre Mikel who is the present guardian of the Ark who lives on the compound of the Treasury of the Ark with other Levitical priests, one of which will succeed him when he dies. They are assimilated into the orthodox church so that they can attend the Ark which is in Orthodox possession. while we have been run off back to Israel or else run off into the diaspora like my family was.

So when you speak of overthrown rightful monarchies, do not forget that the Aksumite Empire has the superior claim to the throne of the nation that you now call by a Greek racial slur "Αιθιοπία" ("Burnt-Face").

So if anyone wants to talk about how original rulers have a superior claim over those who toppled them and their successors, lets not forget the Aksumites, one of which, Empress Makeda, gave birth to our first Solomonic monarch, Minilik I (Minilik the Great), the Son of King Solomon and father of the Solomonic Dynasty. He was a Jew. His descendants were Jews and when the gospel came to Aksum, the vast majority of Aksumite Jews did believe on Yah'shua, which is still the same ratio of Messianics to non-Messianics among Bete Israel today.

So, if anyone wondered what is the proper label (in English) for the 'strange' kind of monarchism I express and follow.(not strange to me, just to certain others who want to forget us), well... there you have it. I am a modern-day surviverof the Aksumites, by the grace of God. And us Tigriñans still are a bit defensive about it. After all, Aksum wa once the capital of the whole Empire before it was moved to Gondar and then again to Shewa where you find today's de facto capital city. But we still believe that the official seat of power should be Aksum where the Ark of the Covenant resides. Just as the capital of Israel was Yeruselam when the Ark resided there, because the Ark itself is the Mercy Seat of the Eternal God, the King of the Universe. Ameyn.

I'd like to see the Kingdom of Iraq be reinstated. If any country was crying out for some leadership...

And while we are grasping at straws and tilting at windmills, let us also remember and tip our cap to His Imperial Majesty, dear old Joshua Abraham Norton, Emperor of America and Protector of Mexico. So have some fried sourdough baguette chips and your favorite vintage in his honor each January 8th,(the anniversary of his untimely departure from this world in 1880, of America's only Emperor).

What about the most successful Carthaginian in Europe, Hamilcar Barca, conquerer of Sicily (I'd mention his more famous son too but that whole elephant road-trip to Rome thing didn't quite pan out as he had hoped... in retrospect, he'd have done much better to ferry all the elephants over from Sicily rather than take the long way around).

And nearly conquering it too, why, he was greater than even the famous general Alexander the Great. And you can ask him yourself if you don't beleive me.

Well I am a long time admirer of Hamilcar Barca, even though his son gets far more recognition. But Carthage and Aksumites are part of why many Sicilians are curlier haired and darker skinned than Italians. My father being a Sicilian-Abyssinian mix was indeed more bronze than my Italian-Sephardic mother.


Sometimes I do wonder if Hannibal had made it and conquered Rome how the world might have turned out. After all, Rome was in its infancy and the Greek Empire was well into its downfall, so there probably might not have been any Roman occupation of Israel and thus no crucifixion as a means of execution in Jeruselam.

I Admit Hannibal was truly great, but he was no Alexander

Perhaps his failure was simply because Scripture cannot be broken....

(That or someone else would have brought in the crosses - perhaps a Carthaginian that got the idea on a road trip....)
