The Little Prince: “All Grown-ups Were Once Children – But Only Few of Them Remember It”

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 25, 2013

My Note: If we somehow try to connect the following two fascinating stories we might find out why those to whom the physical presence of a reigning monarch has a relevant symbolic meaning have succeeded in ending a 3,000-year-old monarchy, and replaced it with a brutal regime that destroyed hundreds of thousands of lives, including that of “The Last Emperors’” who was crowned in 1930 at the Cathedral of St. George in Addis Ababa

The Stolen Ethiopian Prince Buried in Windsor

PrinceAlemayehu2His story has been written by the victors of the Battle of Magdala, but is the truth inhumed beneath the battleground? There’s an Ethiopian prince buried in Windsor Castle at St Georges Chapel. He still can’t get home He died in 1879 and is said to be Queen Victoria’s favorite prince. He is HIH Prince Alemayhu of Ethiopia son of King Tewdros II pictured on left. His tragic life is my chosen subject on BBC radio 4’s Great Lives. My quest into his life begins with his death.

As one taken from his family through deception by the British government I have an interest in Prince Alemayhu. When I discovered him I can’t admit that I wasn’t excited to find a kindred spirit. Like his my childhood is documented by the British government who refused to return me to my Ethiopian mother and hid the letters of her pleading for my return. Not an hundred years earlier government refused to return Prince Alemayhu and, after his death it came to light, they’d hid such letters from him.

The narrative established for me was that my Ethiopian mother and family didn’t want me. Effectively the same narrative was established for the prince. Both were proven to be untrue. I have utilised my life to prove my case. Prince Alemayhu didn’t have that opportunity. To the story. His father The King of Ethiopia committed suicide as the British troops descended upon his castle atop a hill in Magdala. The British army then took his son Prince Aleymahu – he was seven years of age – from Ethiopia to England.

Prince George of Cambridge: is a Jew (Lion of Judah) destined to ascend the Throne?

There was some intriguing correspondence last month in The Times (15 June 2013) concerning the family tree of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Former BBC court correspondent Michael Cole suggested that her genealogy evidences a very significant strand of DNA which places this new third-in-line to the British Throne in direct succession not only to William the Conqueror, but also to the Throne of Israel and the Sceptre of Judah.

All of this means that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is a Jew on her matriarchal side. Ergo, Prince George of Cambridge is a Jew according to Jewish religious custom and law.
