EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures Ras Makonnen Walda-Mika el Guddisa, a pivotal figure in Ethiopian history, in his role as the general and governor of Harar province around 1890. Born in 1852, Ras Makonnen was a prominent military leader and a key advisor to Emperor Menelik II. He played a crucial role in the expansion of the Ethiopian Empire, particularly in the conquest of Harar in 1887. Ras Makonnen's military prowess and political acumen earned him the respect and loyalty of his people, as well as the recognition of the imperial court. He was also the father of Tafari Makonnen, who later became Emperor Haile Selassie I, the revered leader of Ethiopia from 1930 until his overthrow in 1974. In this photograph, Ras Makonnen is depicted in military uniform, exuding confidence and authority. His stern expression and piercing gaze convey a sense of determination and focus, reflecting the challenges and responsibilities he faced as a leader during a time of great change in Ethiopian history. The image offers a glimpse into the life of this remarkable man, who played a significant role in shaping the course of Ethiopian history. It is a testament to his military accomplishments, political astuteness, and enduring legacy as the father of a legendary emperor.
