Tutor description

History Ethnic Oromo Ethiopians had lived on the land before the foundation of Addis Ababa. They lived in a small settlement known under the Oromo name Finfinne. Other parts were called Fil wiha ("hot springs") in Amharic. Menelik, as Negus[nb 1] of Shewa, had found Mount Entoto a useful base for military operations in the south of his realm. In 1879, Menelik visited the reputed ruins of a medieval town and an unfinished rock church that showed proof of an Ethiopian presence in the area prior to the campaigns of Ahmad Gragn. His interest in the area grew when his wife Taytu began work on a church on Entoto. In addition, Menelik endowed a second church in the area. In 1881, Menelik moved the capital of Shewa from Ankober to Entoto.[1]
