Wälättä Mikael aka Taytu Betul was born around 1851 in Ehtiopia. Empress of the Empire from 1889 to 1913, she was a ferocious opponent of European colonization despite the diplomatic openness of her husband, Emperor Menelik II, whom she pushed to challenge the Treaty of Wuchale, which included ceding part from Ethiopian territory to Italy. On March 1, 1896, the Ethiopian armed forces thwarted under his orders the attempted conquest of the Italian troops in Adoua, in Tigray. His patriotism and his radicalism allowed Ethiopia to remain to this day the only nation and the only territory in Africa that has never been colonized or placed under the protectorate of a European State.
