The Biography of Empress Menen Asfaw, The Mother of the Ethiopian Nation

To order the book or ebook:

This book is based on a biography, hidden for many years, written when Empress Menen passed away in 1962 (1954 Ethiopian
Calender). Empress Menen was the wife of Haile Sellassie, the last reigning emperor of Ethiopia, 226th in the line of Solomon.
Empress Menen Asfaw was a
broad-minded women, well ahead of her time, and a true humanitarian.

How This Book Came About
I received this book in Ethiopia, after asking for guidance to learn more about Empress Menen. So little has been written about her.
The Ethiopian Imperial Family gave the go ahead, the book was translated and this was the beginning of a journey in the footsteps
of Her Imperial Majesty, Empress Menen Asfaw. Much has been added to the original volume as I learned about Ethiopian history,
geography and culture.
