Ethiopia, covers the majority of the Horn of Africa, nestled along the continent's northeastern coast and is bisected by the Great Rift Valley, which has long been considered the birthplace of human development. Home to ancient empires dating back to the waning centuries of the first millennium BC, Ethiopia has a storied history driven by the rule of great kings and emperors. As one of the few African nations to avoid the colonial ambitions of Europe, Ethiopia maintained its sovereignty well into the 20th century, remaining independent until the invasion of Italian forces led by Mussolini in 1935.
