The video at the bottom of this article, created to honor past kings and queens of Ethiopia, is an homage to the line of monarchs who trace their ancestry back to Menelik I, the son of Queen Sheba and King Solomon. Though occasionally interrupted by usurpers, the Solomonic line of rulers governed over Ethiopia for 3,000 years.
From Dawit I, Saba Asgad, Atse Tewodros II, Atse Yohannes IV, Menelik II to Haile Selassie I, the Ethiopian crown is filled with leaders who trace their bloodlines to Queen Sheba and King Solomon. There is a reason Ethiopians are called the lost tribe of Israel; the Ethiopian monarchs are the lions of Judah who roared and protected Ethiopia from outside threats for countless centuries.
Though the reign of monarchs came to an end in 1974 when Haile Selassie was deposed by the ruthless Derg government, the Ethiopian crown remains intact through surviving members of past monarchs. The descendants are many and include the descendants of Haile Selassie, Menelik II, Iyasu V and Atse Tewodros II. In fact, the Chair of Ethiopians for Constitutional Monarchy, Lij Teodrose Fikremariam, is a direct descendant of Atse Tewodros II through Tewodros’s son Meshesha Tewodros.
The reign ended in 1974 but the bloodlines of Judah continue strong at this very moment. This video below is our homage to past kings and queens of Ethiopia. More importantly, this video is a dedication to all Ethiopian people. Tribe is just a label, Ethiopia is ETERNAL. We ask all Ethiopians to walk away from what divides us and pray to God and the loves that unites us. As we say, Fiker yashenifal, we must let love win within our hearts.
Pay close attention to the music and the visuals in this video below, you will pick up an underlying message of how we can mend and once again turn her hands back to Egziabher (God). Ethiopia, she is our mother and the womb of humanity. #Fiker4Ethiopia
