Emperor Haile Selassie. Last King of Ethiopia.

His full title is as follows:

“His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie; King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, and Elect of God.”

In our language, however, it goes like this:

Girmāwī ḳadāmāwī ‘aṣē ḫaile śelassie, mō’ā ‘ambassā ze’imneggede yehūda negus negast ze’ītyōṗṗyā, tsehume ‘igzī’a’bihēr”

Fun fact for you kids: He had at least 30 Lions [national animal of Ethiopia] roaming the palace grounds during his reign.

Crucial Culture:

Haile Selassie I, Jah Rastafari….. The Most High covers the Earth Like the WATER covers the sea….
