The Kebra Nagast: The Glory of Kings

ByE.A.W. Budge

This translation of the Kebra Nagast, is by the famed Egyptologist, E.A.W. Budge. The Kebra Nagast tells the legend of the Queen of Sheba's son, Menyelek, whom she concieved by the great Judaic King Solomon. Menyelek took the Ark of the Covenant to Ethiopia, after an angel warned him of the fall of Solomon's reign. The Ark allegedly resides in Ethiopia to this day, in the city of Axum. Committed to writing in the fourteenth century, the Kebra Nagast is derived from Ethiopian oral traditions of the Queen of Sheba and her marriage to Solomon. The Kebra Nagast has been cited as one of the sources of the Rastafarian movement.
