Emperor in 1930.
In 1936 Italy attacked Ethiopia from its colonies in neighboring Somalia and Eritrea and occupied the country until 1941. Haile Selassie spent his exile in the UK, and was restored to power with British and Commonwealth military assistance. His long rule ended with the Ethiopian Revolution of 1974.
Colonel Mengistu Haile Mariam emerged as the leader of the Provisional Military
Administrative Council (known as the Derg) in 1977 which became a brutal Marxist dictatorship. 3

The population experienced massive human rights abuse and intense economic hardship, including acute famine in 1984-5.The
Derg was overthrown in May
