The great-grandson of Ethiopia's last emperor Haile Selassie I, Joel Makonnen, was married last month to a woman he met in a nightclub 12 years ago. Ariana Austin, 33, and Joel Makonnen, 35, were married in an Ethiopian Orthodox ceremony in Maryland on Sept.

It had one unvarying landmark, however; its northern boundary always began at Syene.

We know from the writings of Pliny, Strabo, and Pomponious Mela that in the eyes of Greek geographers Ethiopia included not only all the territory south of Syene on the African continent, but embraced all that part of Asia below the same parallel of latitude.

At that time King Meryra, better known as Pepi I, marched as far south as the Second Cataract, but did not establish a permanent foothold.

Ethiopia's real occupation by Egypt did not begin until the Twelfth Dynasty, when the Pharaohs, being once more in peaceful possession of the Nile Valley, began an era of conquest, and the country of the cataracts became their earliest prey.

Amenemhat I and his son Usertsen I, having driven out the priests of Amun-Ra who ruled at Thebes, and having exiled them beyond Philæ, continued their march as far as Wadi-Halfa.

Their successors, encouraged by these victories, carried on the work of conquest, and Usertsen III pushed as far as the Fourth Cataract and even beyond Napata, as far as the junction of the Atbara.

The name , sometimes met with, is an allusion to the rivers that enclose it.
