Ethiopian Empireball, or Abyssiniaball, was a kingdom in East Africa. He was one of the two only balls in Africa not colonized by Europeans (the other was Liberia-icon.png Liberiaball). He fought two wars with Italian-Empire-icon.png Fascist Italyball, in which the first one he successfully defeated the Italians and kept its independence during the Scramble for Africa, and the second one he was defeated by the Italians shortly before World War II, but it was considered an occupation, not colonization. He would be liberated during World War II.


Dergball Abyssiniaball was born as an 8-icon.png  8ball. Semetic Speaking (in current day Amhara-icon.png Amharaball and Tigray-icon.png Tigrayball2-icon.png 2ball's settle around his clay after King Solomon and then was adopted by Kingdom of Aksumball and D'mtball.

Abyssinia was a well-respected countryball within the Non-European Western countries during its life. He made many friends such as Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball Kingdom of Greece-icon.png Kingdom of Greeceball and Republic of China-icon (1912-1928).png Republic of Chinaball. Abyssinia had many colonization attempts in which all of them had failed. In the meantime of victories Abyssina such as the war against Adal-icon.png Adal Sultanateball with the help of Kingdom of Portugal-icon.png Kingdom of Portugalball.

The first Colonization attempt was by the Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball and Sultanate of Egypt-icon.png Sultanate of Egyptball in which with the help of Adal-icon.png Adal Sultanateball to try to convert Abyssinia into an Islamic country instead of being an Coptic-icon.png evil orthodox! Both Egypt and Turkey had failed and had to repair for war damages. Eventually, over time, Abyssinia eventually traded but never friends with Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball because they trade a lot but Egypt, unfortunately, becomes a British Colony. During World War 1, because of the Armenian Coptic genocide, Abyssinia lost trust in Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball again, therefore helping the allies kill Dervish State-icon.png Dervish Stateball and provided homes shelter, and food for the escaped victims.

The second time Abyssinia tried to get colonized by a European force was with Britain. Britain's goal was to achieve the Jewish religious sights of the past Hebrew Empire. UK-icon.png UKball saw the inner weakness due to the first war from the Kebabs. The damages had led to think that UK-icon.png UKball can take advantage and take the territory while the military was weak. Unfortunately for him, UKball was wrong in which the war only lasted for around 90 minutes until  UKball to find another Semetic Territory called Magdala (now current day Israel-icon.png Israelcube) because Abyssinia-icon.png Abyssinia is too strong!

Italian-Empire-icon.png 3rd attempt: A new hope...The Fascits strikes back...and the return of African monarchy Italian-Empire-icon.png

The First Italo-Ethiopian War originated from a disputed treaty, which Italian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Italyball claimed they turned Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball into an Italian protectorate. Full-scale war broke out in 1895, with Italian troops invading Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball through Italian Eritrea-icon.png Italian Eritreaball, having initial success until Ethiopian troops counterattacked Italian positions and besieged the Italian fort of Meqele, forcing its surrender. Italian defeat came about after the Battle of Adwa, where the Ethiopian army dealt the heavily outnumbered Italians a decisive blow and forced their retreat back into Eritrea. This was not the first African victory over Western colonizers, but it was the first time such an indigenous African army put a definitive stop to a colonizing nation's efforts. Italian-Empire-icon.png Italyball was humiliated by this. This lead towards a nonaggression pact that was eventually broken when Mussolini came to power around World War 2!

In WW2, Fascist Italy-icon.png Fascist Italyball successfully defeated Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball and it was subjected to military occupation. Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball became a part of the Italian colony of Italian East Africa-icon.png Italian East Africaball. Fighting continued until the Italian defeat in East Africa in 1941, during the East African Campaign of WW2.

Haile Selassie, the former emperor, along with the British incited Ethiopian and other local forces to join a campaign to dislodge the Italians from Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopiaball. Selassie went to Sudan-icon.png Khartoum to establish a closer liaison with the British and resistance forces within Ethiopia-icon.png Ethiopia. On 18 January 1941, Selassie crossed the border into Ethiopia near the village of Um Iddla. On 5 May, Selassie and an army of Ethiopian Free Forces entered Addis Ababa-icon.png Addis Abababall. After the Italian defeat, the Italian guerrilla war in Ethiopia was carried out by remnants of Italian troops and their allies, which lasted until the Armistice between Italy and Allied armed forces in September 1943.

The treaty signed in Paris by Italian Social Republic-icon.png Italian Republicball and the Allied powers of World War II on 10 February 1947, included formal Italian recognition of Ethiopian independence and an agreement to pay $25,000,000 in reparations. Since the League of Nations-icon.png League of Nationsball and most of its members had never officially recognized Italian sovereignty over Ethiopia, Haile Selassie had been recognized as the restored emperor of Ethiopia following his formal entry into Addis Ababa in May 1941.

Abyssinia-icon.png Ethiopian Empireball continued to exist until 1974 when it was anschlussed by Derg-icon.png Dergball.
