I've often been asked to provide some pictures of members of the Imperial family.  Here are a few that I've been able to dig up from various sources.


Their late Majesties Emperor in Exile Amha Selassie and Empress Medferiashwork.  His Imperial Majesty died in 1997, and Her Imperial Majesty died just a little over a year ago.


Her Imperial Highness Princess Mariam Senna, daughter of the late Emperor-in-Exile Amha Selassie, and granddaughter of Emperor Haile Selassie.  She is shown here on the blue marble staircase of the Amsale Genet Palace in Addis Ababa, one of the historic buildings which her "Addis Wubet" foundation is helping to preserve. The art deco era Amsale Genet Palace serves as the Faculty of Law building on the campus of Addis Ababa University.  It served as a residence for Emperor Haile Selassie breifly before he built the larger Genete Leul Palace on the same grounds.  It served also as and Imperial Guest House, and is sometimes called "Duke Bet" as the first guest to stay there was HRH the Duke of Abbruzi (obviously before the Italian invasion of 1935).


Crown Prince Asfaw Wossen (later Emperor-in-Exile Amha Selassie) with princesses of the Imperial family.  From left, his daughter Princess Mariam Senna, his sister-in-law, Princess Sara Gizaw Duchess of Harrar, his wife Princess (later Empress) Medferiashwork Abebe, his sister Princess Tenagnework Haile Selassie, on the grounds of the Jubilee Palace in Addis Ababa.

I've also added the pictures as attachments incase you're unable to see them in the body of the text.  Are they visible now?

Yes, I can see the attachments (though there are still large blank spaces in the body of the text where the pictures should be).  Thank you.

Great, Ethiomonarchist! Beautiful pictures!

But the two large pictures in your first post still don't work

If you go to the bottom of that post there are smaller versions included as attachments.  Just click on those and they should pop up in expanded form.
