Chicago, IL -From remote antiquity, Ethiopia’s ancient Throne was consecrated to God via the marriage of the Throne to Ethiopia’s ancient theocratic government (the Church today).
This sacred tradition was broken by a socialist Ethiopian military coup led by Mengistu Haile Mariam when The Throne, in an act of sacrilege, was divorced from the Church and the imperial government was replaced with a brutal reign of terror lasting 17 years. Such acts of terror were never witnessed under the reign of King Haile Selassie I.
In 1991, Mengistu was overthrown by rebel leader Meles Zenawi, who also was no supporter of the monarchy. According to numerous Ethiopian newspaper sources, such as ECADF Ethiopian News Agency and The Ethiopian Times, Zenawi’s vision remained clouded with ethnic prejudices for the entire 17 [?]years that he was in office
Wolette Selassie, head researcher at the Queen of Sheba Historical Research Foundation, noted how interviews she conducted with prominent Ethiopians in the US and Ethiopia over the past 20 years, one individual in particular who works for the Library of Congress, all expressed regrets for participating in the movement to overthrow King Selassie, especially after having lived under the regimes of Mengistu and Zenawi.
While various governments around the world take pride in and relish all opportunities to promote and preserve their ancient historical legacies, under constitutional monarchies such as in England, Spain, Sweden, and Belgium, to name a few, Ethiopia has yet to officially recognize the history of her ancient monarchy, the oldest in the world, said Wolette Sealssie
Nathaniel Mayes III, president of the Sacrament California office of the Queen of Sheba said that based on his investigative research, ethnic prejudice and politics appear to be the main reasons why the Throne and members of the Solomonic Dynasty have been expatriated for past thirty-nine years.
Today, on the eve of 84th Anniversary of the Coronation of King Haile Selassie I, who was the last of the Solomonic Kings to sit upon the Throne of David in Ethiopia in modern times (1930-1974), the Queen of Sheba encourages the Ethiopian government and the Ethiopian Tewahedo Church in Ethiopia to correct the errors of the past and bring the Throne of David home to Ethiopia, where it belongs.
The Ethiopian government is expressly encouraged to continue to separate history from politics so that the Church can remarry the Throne according to the ancient tradition. In this way, the Throne can serve the people of Ethiopian as a non-political humanitarian organization solely dedicated to education and historical preservation.
