2 reviews of Menelik Palace

A palace in the mountains

On the outskirts of Addis Ababa is the Menilik II Palace. He was the founder of the present capital of Ethiopia and died in 1913. His death is very curious as he was convinced that by eating the pages of the Bible he would be cured of all sickness. But while trying to eat the book of Kings, he had an apoplexy and died. From the palace you can see all of Addis Ababa, imagine that in his time there wasn't as much polution, now that's all you see. It is worth the climb and shop around. The first Menilik was supposed to be the son of the Queen of Sheba and Solomon
