Tafari Makonnen, the future Emperor Haile Selassie, was born in the city of Harer, Ethiopia, July 23, 1892. Because his father was a "right hand" of Emperor Menelik II, that he was assured a bright future. In 1910 he was governor of his native province. When the little daughter of Emperor Menelik, Zauditu, became Empress, Tafari was proclaimed regent and heir to the throne.
In 1923, Tafari entered Ethiopia in the League of Nations, and in 1924 became the first ruler of Ethiopia who visited on a visit to Europe.

In 1955 he published a new constitution, which declared itself the sole ruler.
