Why was Ethiopia not colonize?
Ethiopia was never colonized by ANY European country. Italy tried twice to colonize Ethiopia. The reason Ethiopia was never colonized was because under a centralized government by Menelik the II, Ethiopians had attained guns and had a well organized military and went to battle in a structured way. Ethiopians believe that they were also helped by Saint Giyorgis, but thats from a religious point of view.

Italy colonized Ethiopia, but some say Italy only occupied it.
Ethiopia Ethiopia was not colonized because it resisted Italy's colonization efforts by winning the Battle of Adowa. Although Italy came back to avenge this loss and rule Et…hiopia for five years this is not considered as colonization as it lasted for a short period of time and during this time Italy could not control the guerrilla fighters who were fighting to free their country. Ethiopia was very well guarded by its environment and surrounding empires, which played a key role in warding off European invaders. Ethiopians were also very resistant and successful in defeating European powers. Liberia Liberia was established by the USA as a place where free slaves could travel to and establish their own government. Europeans and America that this country was going to be a home for freed slaves who wanted to return to Africa. This movement was also known as Back to Africa Movement. As a result, Liberia became an independent nation and was protected by US-European agreements.
That was not your business.
No country should be colonized; it is a violation of each people'sright to self-sovereignty.
Liberia is the other African country that people usually claim isnot colonized, but since it was founded by American Blacks whoestablished a very European-style country, it is… hard to make theclaim that it was not a colonial project.

They had stronger governments and enough strength as a culture to hold together in combat and politics
Ethiopia was the only African country to NOT be colonized
Ethiopia was able to avoid colonization up through World War II byaggressively and intelligently monitoring its borders and acquiringWestern military technologies. After World… War II, colonization wasseen as an inherent evil and has generally been opposed.
I think the Italians used to be there.
Nope, Portugal had contact with Ethiopia back in 1508, and sent an army of 400 men to aid them in a war against the Kingdom of Adal. Italy under Mussolini, conquered Ethopi…a in 1936.

Italy and England. The Italians attempted a conquest of Ethiopia in 1895 (the FirstItalo-Ethiopian War), but the Ethiopians forced the Italians toretreat using Russian and Fr…ench-made weaponry. It was a horriblyembarrassing affair for the Italians since Whites were believed tobe genetically superior to Blacks and here was "White Italy"defeated by "Black Ethiopia". Italy would nurse this wound in prideby attempting a second (successful) invasion of Ethiopia over fortyyears later in 1935-1936.
Liberia was actually an American colony.
Ethiopia was NEVER colonized, it was just partially occupied under Italy for 5 years but was not colonized. ever. The above is incorrect. Ethiopia was not colonized until… 1936. Italy did place Italian inhabitans in the country, but the enterprise did not last. Italy's colonial claims were acknowledged and accepted by other European states. . PLEASE IGNORE THE ANSWERS ABOVE. Ethiopia was never colonized. Italy attempted to colonize Ethiopia, but us Ethiopians fought back! Ethiopia beat Italy and did NOT get colonized, EVER. Ethiopia is the only country in Africa that has never gotten colonized by another country.
Ethiopia is one of the only countries to have never lost its Independence. Other than the brief period when the Italians invaded, Ethiopia was never colonized. The reason that… the British didn't take over the country after ww1 was that Ethiopia was a member of the League of Nations. The country is also a charter member of the UN.
