Actions Shares. This lasted until the rise of one of these polities during the first century BC, the Aksumite Kingdom. The ancestor of medieval and modern Eritrea and Ethiopia, Aksum was able to reunite the area. The Kingdom of Aksum was a trading empire centered in Eritrea and northern Ethiopia. The Kingdom used the name "Ethiopia" as early as the 4th century. The capital city of the empire was Aksum , now in northern Ethiopia.
Today a smaller community, the city of Aksum was once a bustling metropolis, cultural and economic center. Two hills and two streams lie on the east and west expanses of the city; perhaps providing the initial impetus for settling this area.
Along the hills and plain outside the city, the Aksumites had cemeteries with elaborate grave stones called stelae , or obelisks. By the reign of Endubis in the late 3rd century, it had begun minting its own currency and was named by Mani as one of the four great powers of his time along with Persia , Rome , and China. It converted to Christianity in or under King Ezana and was the first state ever to use the image of the cross on its coins.
The governor of the northern province received the title Bahre Negash Ruler of the sea , whereas the governor of the southern province was given the title of Tigray Mekonen Lord of Tigray. The Portuguese Jesuit, Emanuele Baradas' work titled "Do reino de Tigr" and written in states that the "reino de Tigr" extended from Hamasien to Temben, from the borders of Dankel to the Adwa mountain.
He also stated that Tigray-Mereb Melash was divided into twenty-four smaller political units principalities , twelve of which were located south of the Mereb and governed by the Tigray Mekonen based in Enderta. Other districts included Akele Guzay now part of Eritrea , and the kingdom of the Bahr negus , who ruled much of what is now Eritrea and Shire district and town in Western Tigray.
At the time when Tigray Mekonnen existed simultaneously with that of Bahr negus, their frontier seems to have been the Mareb River , which is currently constitutes the border between the Ethiopian province of Tigray and Eritrea.
After the loss of power of the Bahr negus in the aftermath of Bahr negus Yeshaq 's rebellions, the title of Tigray mekonnen gained power in relation to the Bahr negus and at times included ruling over parts of what is now Eritrea, especially in the 19th century.
Rulers of Tigray such as Ras Wolde Selassie alternated with others, chiefly those of Begemder or Yejju , as warlords to rule in fact the Ethiopian monarchy during the Zemene Mesafint.
In the midth century, the lords of Tembien and Enderta managed to create an overlordship of Tigray to their dynasty. Following his death in the Battle of Metemma , the Ethiopian throne came under the control of the king of Shewa , and the center of power shifted south and away from Tigray.
The gerren sent representatives to a central congress, called the shengo, which elected leaders and established a military command system. Although the Woyane rebellion of had shortcomings as a prototype revolution, historians, however, agree that the Woyane rebellion had involved a fairly high level of spontaneity and peasant initiative.
It demonstrated considerable popular participation and reflected widely shared grievances.
The uprising was unequivocally and specifically directed against the central Shoan Amhara regime of Haile Selassie I, rather than the Tigrayan imperial elite. Ethiopian Civil War[ edit ] After the February popular revolution, the first signal of any mass uprising was the actions of the soldiers of the 4th Brigade of the 4th Army Division in Nagelle in southern Ethiopia.
In July the Derg obtained key concessions from the emperor, Haile Selassie , which included the power to arrest not only military officers but government officials at every level. Soon both former Prime Ministers Tsehafi Taezaz Aklilu Habte-Wold and Endalkachew Makonnen , along with most of their cabinets, most regional governors, many senior military officers and officials of the Imperial court were imprisoned. In August, after a proposed constitution creating a constitutional monarchy was presented to the emperor, the Derg began a program of dismantling the imperial government in order to forestall further developments in that direction.
The Derg deposed and imprisoned the emperor on September 12, In addition, the Derg in nationalized most industries and private and somewhat secure urban real-estate holdings. Martyrs' Memorial in Mekelle. But mismanagement, corruption, and general hostility to the Derg's violent rule, coupled with the draining effects of constant warfare with the separatist guerrilla movements in Tigray, led to a drastic fall in general productivity of food and cash crops.
