 Dynastic Marriage in Old-Time Ethiopia, 4
Believed to have been a sister of Gedewon, the Beta Esra'el ruler of Samen, she is referred to in the royal chronicles by the title Emabat or Tegazanyi, both roughly equivalent to Princess.
That Harago was not Sarsa Dengel's official consort, but only, as the Jesuits claim, a "concubine," was entirely irrelevant to the later question of royal succession.
Sarsa Dengel, doubtless wearied by continued discussion, declared that they should settle the matter as they wished.

 An Historical Essay
Early in the sixteenth century Emperor Lebna Dengel of Ethiopia (1508-1540), sent King Manoel I of Portugal what may be termed, in modern parlance, an important request for technical assistance.
Emperor Sarsa Dengel (1563-1597) wrote to King Filipe II of Spain asking for experienced workmen, who knew how to make helmets and cannons, and how to produce gunpowder and other war material.
Emperor Za Dengel (1603-4) wrote to the same Spanish monarch for artisans and soldiers "so that", as he declared, "peace and love should take root between us who are united in the faith of Christ".

This official, named Dori, is said by Alvares to have been the uncle of Emperor Lebnä Dengel (1508-1540), i.e.
He was therefore less interested than Lebna Dengel in controlling the northern periphery of the country facing Massawa.
Because of this matrimonial lineage Debleyes had no small opinion of himself, and was quoted as proudly declaring, "Except for the King of Kings, I have no one above me!" His supposed high rank, it may be supposed, was the result of yet another politically significant Hamasen marriage, of which no details are apparently extant.

Under Minas (1159-63), Sarsa Dengel (1563-97), and Ya'eqob Za Dengel (1597-1607), civil war was incessant.
There was a brief respite under Susneos (1607-32), but war broke out afresh under Fasiladas (1632-67), and the clergy, moreover, increased the trouble by their theological disputes as to the two natures of Christ.

These "Beta Israel" established themselves and were strong until the Amhara King, Sarsa Dengel (1563 - 1597) defeated them in battle.
Sarsa Dengel's chronicles, which were translated about one hundred years ago into Hebrew and French by Joseph Halevy, reported that the Amhara soldiers captured Israeli girls, each soldier tying the girl's wrist to his own wrist, and led them off to rape them.
As they passed by the top of a high cliff, one Israeli girl shouted: "Hear O Israel the Lord is God the Lord is One" and leapt to her death taking the soldier with her.

 Aiga, Ethiopia- A Living Monument of Courage!
Emperor Sarsa Dengel, faced by Turkish advance inland from Massawa in 1578, is said to have on one occasion reinforced his army with 150 musketeers...
Page 279: The fire-arms situation in the north meanwhile continued to be appreciably different from that in the rest of the country.
In the later 1580s a peasant of Hamasen, called Walda Ezum, defeated a Turkish force armed with "many rifles" which he succeeded in capturing, and as a result became so well-armed that he rebelled against Emperor Sarsa Dengel, but was later defeated.

Jews in Mediterranean countries who heard of the battles or met Falasha prisoners of war offered for sale in slave markets, primarily in Egypt, believed that the strife might indicate the coming of the Messiah, since this event was supposed to be preceded by war between Jews and Christians.
During the reign of Negus Lebna Dengel (1508-1540) and his son Claudius (1540-1559), Muslim forces under Arab Emir Ehmed Garan, ruler of eastern Ethiopia and Somalia, conquered broad stretches of Ethiopia including Semyen and Dembia, where the Jews had settled.
With the help of the Portuguese, who intervened in Abyssinia (at the time one of Portugal's New World discoveries en route to India), Negus Claudius liberated his land from the Muslims and took revenge on the Falashas and their king, Yoram, whom he executed for aiding the Muslim enemy.

In desperation, Lebna Dengel appealed to the Portuguese for help and in 1541, after the emperor had been succeeded by his son, Galawdewos (154o-1559), a contingent of four hundred musketeers arrived at Massawa and helped defeat the Muslims in an engagement near Lake Tana during which Gran himself was slain.
Before their remorseless advance, the Ethiopians were forced to withdraw, and to share their country with the invaders with whom they lived side by side over the ensuing centuries, but always as strangers and potential enemies.
Coincident with the beginning of the Galla migrations there was a Turkish occupation of Massawa and other coastal points which the emperor Sarsa Dengel (1563-1597) succeeded in neutralizing though not eliminating in 1589.

As one of the Eritrean liberation movements is purported to have stated in a radio broadcast during the civil war, did Ethiopia fight all these wars to help a neighboring country defend itself?
By the way, it is worth noting here that subsequent battles, including the one in 1579 lead by Emperor Sertse Dengel, pushed the Ottoman Turks to the seashore, finally limiting their control to the Massawa coastal area only.
During the five-year Italian occupation of Ethiopia, when many Eritreans deserted the Italian forces and fought along side their brothers and sisters, the Italians combined Tigray and Eritrea into one administrative unit.

This decisive battle was fought at a place called Mashaka, near the Marek River, identified by some as the Hill of the Jews.
Sarsa Dengel [King of Ethiopia of the Amharic Solomonic line] celebrated his great victory with a Mass on top of Redai’s mountain in which all of the Falashas’ histories and all of their religious books were burned…it was an attempt to eradicate forever the Judaic memory of Ethiopia.
The Beta Israel had no Hebrew liturgy, or indeed any liturgy not borrowed from the Coptic Christians, because it was systematically destroyed, and as a result of the same oppression by the ruling Amhara, the Jews were reduced in number and isolated from the last connection they had to other Diaspora communities (principally in Yemen).
