Why Ethiopia not colonised?
Ethiopia defeated the invading colonial army of Italy at the Battle of Adwa in 1896. The success in the battlefield was followed by astute diplomacy of King Menelik II to ensure the country's independence by European states. He signed a treaty with Italy whereby Italy ensured Ethiopia's sovereignty in exchange for return of captured Italian and colonial soldiers. He subsequently managed to carry on a balanced diplomatic act of balancing the British interests against the French in the Horn to ensure that other colonial powers wouldn't undermine its sovereignty and colonise it. Ethiopia's independence was achieved through defeating colonial Italy in 1896 and subsequent signing of tripartite agreement with France and Britain in 1906.
