As in past years, the Annual Victory of Adwa Commemoration Dinner was held at Washington DC's Army & Navy Club.   This year the event was hosted by the Moa Anbessa Institute, the leading Ethiopian monarchist organization.  As in past years, the Crown Council of Ethiopia used this dinner to hold it's annual investiture, and Prince Ermias Sahle Selassie handed out the orders and medals to the distinguished awardees.  As a past awardee I was honored to be a guest.  Several distinguished individuals were awarded

Some pictures of me at the event.  The first photo is me with the hosts, H.I.H. Prince Ermias Sahle Selassie and his wife H.I.H. Princess Saba Kebede.  The second I'm with the gentlemen of my table, who were all of Italian background but firm friends of the Ethiopian Empire and monarchists.  On the far left of this image is Professor Giovanni Ruffini who is a personal friend and teaches ancient history.  He was made a Commander of the Star of Honor of Ethiopia (like I was last year), and also awarded the Adwa Medal.  Next is Nicholas Melillo, the President of Foundation Cigar Company and a firm friend of Ethiopia. Next is yours truly.  Then Lt. Colonel Robert Rufulo, a long time friend of Ethiopia and staunch supporter of Prince Ermias and the Crown Council.  He is also a supporter of the Bourbon Two Sicilies cause (I didn't ask him which claimant but I suspect it's the Castro side). The last picture I am with Dr. Mikael Wossen and his wife Woizero Konjit Yilma.  Dr. Mikael is the son of Wagshum Wossen Hailu, the heir to the old Zagwe Dynasty that built the rock hewn churches of Lalibella and which interrupted the Solomonic Dynasty's rule, and governed Ethiopia as Emperors for almost two centuries.  He is thus the direct descendant of not just monarchs, but several Ethiopian Orthodox Saints
