 On February 9th, Kassa Haile Giorgis was crowned as King Tewodros II of Ethiopia, a man who had much ambition regarding where he wanted his nation to go. Believing that what Ethiopia needed more than anything else was a strong, centralised and modern state, Tewodros II was however confronted by a powerful Egypt to the north which wanted nothing more than to see Ethiopia gobbled up as a vassal. Needing help but believing Alfred’s visit to Egypt would cancel any European interest, Tewodros turned to the only other nation that seemed possible to help him, the Ottoman Empire. On February 9th, Kassa Haile Giorgis was crowned as King Tewodros II of Ethiopia, a man who had much ambition regarding where he wanted his nation to go.
