User comments for Makeda
Makeda, known in history as the Queen of Sheba, ascended the Ethiopian throne in 1005 B.C. She was exceptionally beautiful and exceedingly rich. Solomon, who in his Biblical writings described himself as Black, (Song of Solomon, Chapter 1, verses 5-6) welcomed the beautiful Black queen warmly. King Solomon wished to marry her and have a child by her. Then a boy child was born and named Menelik. Menelik descendants have ruled Ethiopia nearly 2,800 years except for a brief period in the ninth and tenth centuries A.D.
