Robert Griffiths Hello Siboan
The Emperor Menelik II is not a family ancestor of mine. The reason he is on our family site, is because my French great grandfather explored large parts of Abyssinia in 1900-1901 and charted parts of the Nile. He presented his map to the Emperor and the photos you have seen are taken from the book he wrote about his expedition to Abyssinia and his dealings with Menelik (hence the name of the book: Menelik et nous).
The picture you have commented on is not of Menelik (aka Le Negus), but rather of the King of the Kaffa (Le Roi du Kaffa – not Kaka as is mistakenly written on the site). The King of the Kaffa rebelled against the Emperor, but was defeated.
I am aware that Menelik claimed that he and his daughter Zauditu were direct descendants in the male line of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, but I am afraid I am no expert on his genealogy.
Good luck in your search.
Kind regards
