Ras Gobana Dacche

The two most important historical figures who signify the introduction of the concepts of national boundary and sovereignty in Ethiopia are Emperor Menelik II and Ras Gobana Dache, who used guns manufactured in Europe to bring a large swath of Biyas (regions/nations) under a centralized rule.

Beles,
All successful men in history are admired and hated in equal measure. But to be great one must have one quality, respected by his/her foe.
