High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Yohannes I throne name
A'ilaf Sagad was n gusa nagast (1667 - 1682) of Ethiopia, and a
member of the Solomonic dynasty. He was the fourth son of
Fasilides. Yohannes was appointed n gusa nagast by a council of the
senior dignitaries of the Empire, at the encouragement of the noble
Blattengeta Malka Krestos. The council then imprisoned the other
sons of Fasilides on Mount Wehni, continuing the practice Fasilides
had revived. According to G.W.B. Huntingford, Yohannes spent much
of his reign campaigning, stating that 6 of the 11 itineraries he
reproduces were military expeditions. Three of these were against
the Agaw in Gojjam, and Agawmeder, one against the Oromo, and two
punitive expeditions to the area around Mount Ashgwagwa -- Angot
and Lasta -- to quash the revolts of Feres (in 1677) and Za Maryam
(1679). Emperor Yohannes died on 19 July and was buried at Teda.
