In this episode we'll find out about how Ethiopia/Abyssinia survived the Scramble for Africa.

Aksumite Empire (Abyssinia/Ethiopia)

The Kingdom of Aksum (or the Aksumite Empire) was an ancient kingdom located in what is now Tigray Region in northern Ethiopia, and Eritrea. Axumite Emperors were powerful sovereigns, styling themselves King of kings (Negusa Nagast). Ruled by the Aksumites, it existed from approximately 100 CE to 970 CE. The Empire was centered in the city of Axum and became a major player on the commercial route between the Roman Empire and Ancient India. The Aksumite rulers facilitated trade by minting their own Aksumite currency, with the state establishing its hegemony over the declining Nubian Kingdom of Kush. It also regularly entered the politics of the kingdoms on the Arabian Peninsula and eventually extended its rule over the region with the conquest of the Himyarite Kingdom in Yemen in 530 CE.
After a second golden age in the early 6th century the empire began to decline in the mid 6th century. The Aksumite Empire had a longstanding relationship with Muslims, in 615 CE he sent a small group of persecuted muslim to seek asylum in Aksumite Empire. Negus Sahama, the Aksumite monarch, gave them refuge and protection. He refused the requests of the Quraish clan to send these refugees back to Arabia. These refugees did not return until the sixth Hijri year (628), and even then many remained in Ethiopia, eventually settling at Negash.
The Caliphates took control of the Red Sea and Egypt by 646 CE, Aksumite Empire continued as an extensive and powerful state, though they had lost control of most of the coast and their tributaries. While land was lost in the north, it was gained in the south; and, though Ethiopia was no longer an economic power house, but its strategic location still attracted Arab merchants.
Climate change and trade isolation are probably also large reasons for the decline of the Aksumite Empire relied heavily on agriculture export.
around 960, a Jewish Queen named Gudit who laid waste to Axum and its countryside, destroyed churches and monuments, and attempted to exterminate the members of the ruling dynasty of the Kingdom of Aksum.She took over Aksumite throne and her reign ended some time before 1003 CE.
