The Coronation of H.I.M. Haile Selassie I

Hail Mi Irieites,

On this day in 1930,  more than 72 nations converged on Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for the coronation of H.I.M. Haile Sellassie I (Qädamawi Haylä Səllasé).

Born Lij Tafari Makonnen Woldemikael, the ascending King Tafari Makonnen broke from tradition and ensured that both the Empress Menen Asfaw and HIMself were crowned within the same ceremony.
