HIM Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia

“Haile Selassie (1892-1975), Emperor of Ethiopia from 1930 to 1974, could trace his ancestory back to King Solomon and the legendary Queen of Sheba. The Rastafari movement (named after Selassie’s birth name Ras [Prince] Tafari) reveres Selassie as the messiah, though the Emperor was an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian. Selassie rose to power as co-regent of Ethiopia when the corrupt and licentious Emperor Lij Iyasu was deposed in 1916 and his aunt Zewditu acceded to the throne as empress. …” extract taken from the book ‘Henry Poole & Co The First Tailor of Savile Row’.
