Ethiopians for Constitutional Monarchy

The Solomonic Bloodline Continues

Lij Teodrose Fikremariam

Lij Teodrose Fikremariam is the Chair of Ethiopians for Constitutional Monarchy. He is the direct descendant of Atse Tewodros II, the once Emperor of Ethiopia who united a fractured nation during Zemene Mesafint (age of princes) and imbued Ethiopia with a sense of togetherness that enabled them to eventually defeat Italy at the battle of Adwa.

Lij Teodrose believes in one Ethiopia and that a nation can only be judged by the wellness of the least among us.
