Timeline of History

History Topics

Haile Selassie is crowned emperor of Ethiopia at Addis Ababa's Cathedral of St. George. This fulfils for many people a prophecy which becomes a cornerstone of Rastafarianism.

Born Tafari Makonnen, he is part of a dynasty that stretches back to the 13th century and which claims to have roots going back to King Solomon and Queen Makeda.

An Ethiopian Orthodox Christian, he will be revered as the returned messiah of the Bible and God incarnate by members of the Rastafari movement.
