Abstract:Theodore II, Emperor of Ethiopia from 1855 to 1868, was one of the most dynamic and intelligent rulers of his time. His significance to Ethiopia as a modernizer and nation builder has received much attention. No coherent discussion, however, is available of the assumptions, principles and aims of his foreign policy. This article fills this gap and shows how he was a-head of many African rulers of the 19th century in his understanding of European imperialism and in devising policies and programmes to meet its threat to his independence. Notes.
