Today marks the 127th birthday anniversary of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie. Haile Selassie was born with the name Lij Tafari Makonnen Woldemikael on July 23, 1892, and was an Ethiopian regent from 1916 to 1930 and Emperor from 1930 to 1974.

His Ge'ez name, Haile Selassie, was given to him at his infant baptism and adopted again as part of his regal name in 1930.

On 2 November 1930, after the death of Empress Zewditu, he was crowned Negusa Nagast, translating to King of Kings, rendered in English as "Emperor". Upon his ascension, he took as his regnal name Haile Selassie I which roughly translates to “Power of the Trinity.” Haile Selassie's full title in office was "By the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, King of Kings of Ethiopia, Elect of God". This title reflects Ethiopian dynastic traditions, which hold that all monarchs must trace their lineage to Menelik I, who was the offspring of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba.

Emperor Haile Selassie was an important figure in modern Ethiopian history. His internationalist views led to Ethiopia becoming a charter member of the United Nations. At the League of Nations in 1936, he condemned Italy's use of chemical weapons against Ethiopia's people during the Second Italo-Ethiopian War.

In 1963, Haile Selassie presided over the formation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), the precursor of the continent-wide African Union (AU). In May of that year, Haile Selassie was elected as the OAU's first official chairperson.

Haile Selassie was married to his wife Menen Asfaw and had six children: Princess Tenagnework, Crown Prince Asfaw Wossen, Princess Zenebework, Princess Tsehai, Prince Makonnen, and Prince Sahle Selassie.

Happy 127th birthday anniversary to His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie.

    Tsavo Man-Eaters THE GHOST and THE DARKNESS were a pair of man-eating lions in the Tsavo region, which were responsible for the deaths of a number of construction workers on the Kenya-Uganda Railway between March and December 1898. The significance of this lion pair was their unusual behavior of killing men and the manner of their attacks.
