Emporor Haile Selassie I was Ethiopia's regent from 1916 to 1930 and Emperor of Ethiopia 1930 to 1974. An opponent of colonization, he became a worldwide anti-Fascist figure after appealing to the United Nations for help against Mussolini's invading armies. In addition, Selassie is regarded by Rastafarians as the returned messiah of the Bible, God incarnate.
