’This country is mine and no other nation can have it!’ It had happened. King Menelik II was now Emperor Menelik II. With his rival killed and his armoury overflowing with modern guns, The ancient kingdom of Ethiopia seemed destined for prosperity. But, friendship with Italy came with a price tag and when The Emperor wouldn’t dance to their tune, things got nasty. Could an African Kingdom repel a modern European state? This episode covers Menelik’s reign as Emperor, including the famous Battle of Adwa. Help support the show on Patreon! Sources and Attributions on our website.
