Thank you!
Set within Haile Selassie’s former palace and surrounded by the beautiful gardens and fountains of Addis Ababa University’s main campus is the enthralling Ethnological Museum.
Some rooms on first floor show the preserved bedroom, bathroom and exorbitant changing room of Emperor Haile Selassie, complete with a bullet hole in his mirror courtesy of the 1960 coup d’état.
In the 1950s scholars started to collect artifacts from all over the country in co-operation with the former Ethnological Society of the University College of Addis Ababa. This collection is the basis for the Institute of Ethiopian Studies today, as well as for the museum. It is located in one of the former palaces of the late emperor

    Sin embargo, sus partidarios señalan que fue asesinado por orden de Mengistu, uno de los hombres más cercanos al por entonces jefe de Estado, Tafari Benti, y que más tarde se convertiría en hombre fuerte del socialismo etíope.
    El Derg respaldado por los soviéticos cayeron en 1991. En 1992, los huesos del emperador fueron encontrados debajo de una losa de hormigón en los jardines del palacio, algunos informes sugieren que sus restos fueron descubiertos debajo de una letrina Durante casi una década después, ya que los tribunales etíopes trataron de arreglar las circunstancias. de su muerte, su ataúd descansó en Bhata Iglesia, cerca imperial lugar de descanso de su tío abuelo Menelik II. El 5 de noviembre de 2000, Haile Selassie se le dio un funeral de estilo imperial de la iglesia ortodoxa etíope. El gobierno post-comunista rechazó los llamados a declarar la ceremonia de un funeral oficial imperial.

    A pesar de figuras tan importantes como rastafaris Rita Marley y otros participaron en el funeral grandioso, más Rastafari rechazó el caso y se negó a aceptar que los huesos eran los restos de Haile Selassie. Sigue habiendo cierto debate dentro del movimiento Rastafari en cuanto a si en realidad Haile Selassie murió en 1975.

  • Addis Ababa Domestic Airport
  • Addis Ababa, Ethnological Museum2

    1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-2137495-ethiopia12/
    2. 2. Addis Ababa (the name means 'new flower') is of fairly recent origin - Menelik II founded the city in 1887 but is an important administrative centre not only for Ethiopia but also for the whole of Africa. Situated in the foothills of the Entoto Mountains and standing 2,400 metres above sea level it is the third highest capital in the world. The city has a population of about four million.
    3. 3. Set within Haile Selassie’s former palace and surrounded by the beautiful gardens and fountains of Addis Ababa University’s main campus is the enthralling Ethnological Museum. Some rooms on first floor show the preserved bedroom, bathroom and exorbitant changing room of Emperor Haile Selassie, complete with a bullet hole in his mirror courtesy of the 1960 coup d’état. In the 1950s scholars started to collect artifacts from all over the country in co- operation with the former Ethnological Society of the University College of Addis Ababa. This collection is the basis for the Institute of Ethiopian Studies today, as well as for the museum. It is located in one of the former palaces of the late emperor
    4. 4. A small staircase, which does not reflect the remainder of the palace, leads to the first floor and ends in a portal, where one of the favorite lions of Haile Selassie is stuffed.
    5. 5. Following the corridor you enter the former reception hall, where an outstanding anthropological exhibition will give an overview of the typical traditions of the country from birth to death. A wide range of topics is shown: childhood, games, rites, food and drinks, nomadism, body culture, traditional medicine, as well as burial customs.
    6. 6. on the same floor the bedrooms of both the late Empress on the right, and the Emperor on the left.
    7. 7. Haile Selassie was overthrown and imprisoned by the military on September 12, 1974 and later executed by the Derg (Military Committee) including his cabinet members, monarchist, and the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church.
    8. 8. Haile Selassie ruled Ethiopia for 45 years before he was overthrown by the Marxist dictator Mengistu Haile Mariam in 1974. The 81-year-old emperor was detained in his palace by Mengistu's soldiers. He died a year later, many believe murdered by his captors. His remains were found in 1992, buried under a toilet in the Imperial Palace.
    9. 9. More than 35 years have passed since his death, but his legacy still lives on. Haile Selassie is one of the founding fathers of the OAU and is viewed by many as the figurehead of African independence, for his defiance against the Italian colonial invasion in the 1930s. He is also revered by the million- strong Rastafarian community, who believe that the Ethiopian emperor either remains alive and well, or ascended bodily into heaven.
    10. 10. Compared with the pompous bed and other furniture, the Emperor had a rather small desk at his disposal, just fitting near the window.
    11. 11. The Gannata Le’ul Palace was the site, during the emperor’s absence on a State visit to Brazil on 13 December 1960, of an abortive coup d’ etat, led by Colonel Mengestu Neway, Commander of the Imperial Bodyguard, and his brother Germame Neway.
    12. 12. Crown Prince Asfa Wossen was pressured into broadcasting in favor of a new government, committed to “the progress of the country and its people”. Nineteen prominent officials, including Ato Makonnen Habta Wald, Minister of Commerce, Ras Abebe Arregay, Minister of War and Ras Seyoum, Governor of Tigray, were detained in the Palace’s Green Salon, where, on the collapse of the coup, they were shot.
    13. 13. Though put down by the army and air force, the coup signaled the beginning of the end of imperial rule in Ethiopia. On 12 September 1974 Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed by a radical military group known as the Derg (Committee), unceremoniously bundled into the back of a Volkswagen, and driven away to prison. Ministers, nobles and close confidants of the emperor were also arrested by the Derg. The absolute power of the emperor and the divine right of rule of the century-old imperial dynasty was finished – forever?
    14. 14. Next you enter a small dressing room complete with gifts for the Emperor, including miniature cannons and guns
    15. 15. This astonishing silver and gold bowl weighs almost two kilograms and yet is made fine filigree. Commissioned from an Ethiopian craftsman (the palace commissioned filigree silver from one local Addis Ababa craftsman in particular in the 1960s), it was presented by His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the ruler of Abu Dhabi, most probably in 1969. A crest of the Emperor is worked into the design of the bowl
    16. 16. The gold minaudiere that Emperor Haile Selassie gave as a gift to Jackie when she was First Lady. Evidently because it was a gift of State, it was supposed to be left with the government, but Jackie took it anyway, later gave it to her sister Lee, who later sold it at auction
    17. 17. Some of Haile Selassie's family were executed by firing squad, others were imprisoned
    18. 18. the Emperor’s bathroom is surprisingly in a European 1930s style, with a light blue bath, toilet and double washbasin.
    19. 19. Empress Menen Asfaw (1891-1962), Haile Selassie's wife
    20. 20. When Haile Selassie was enthroned in 1930, he became not only emperor of Ethiopia, but also god to the fledgling Rastafarian movement in Jamaica.
    21. 21. Ras Lumumba, a Sudanese Rastafarian who came to settle in Ethiopia three years ago, says the Emperor is their Messiah or Jah. "Haile Selassie is King of Kings, Lord of Lords, and the conquering lion of the Tribe of Judah. He is everything to us Rastafarians and we will never accept that he is dead."
    22. 22. In 1992 the body of Haile Selassie was finally discovered. It had been unceremoniously buried beneath Derg leader, Colonel Mengistu’s, old presidential office toilet.
    23. 23. The Great Unifier: Emperor Tewodros II of Ethiopia Téwodros II baptized as Sahle Dingil, and often referred to in English by the equivalent Theodore II) (1818 – 1868) was the Emperor of Ethiopia from 1855 until his death. Princess Yeshashwork Yilma Mekonnen, Emperor Hiale Sellassie's Niece
    24. 24. Empress Taytu and Menelik II Ethiopia 1883-1910
    25. 25. Menelik II (1844-1913), is the emperor of Abyssinia (1889-1910). At the height of his internal power and external prestige, the process of territorial expansion and creation of the modern empire-state had been completed by 1898. Menelik II was fascinated by modernity, and like Tewodros II before him, had a keen ambition to introduce Western technological and administrative advances into Ethiopia.
