C.D.V. pen ink sketch of a man's head. Inscribed Theodorus, Emperor of Abyssinia. Sketched immediately after the capture of Magdala, 13, April 1868. by R. R. Holmes F.S.A, Archaeologist attached to the expedition". Below that it partially states: "To his Friend Stanley..." April 13, 1868 the Emperor of Ethiopia, Emperor Tewodros Theodorus committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a revolver. This suicide occurred during a battle between his loyal troops and army of Great Britain at Magdala. Henry M. Stanley, of Stanley and Livingston fame, traveled to Ethiopia as a correspondent for the New York Herald and he accompanied the British force that was led by Lt. Sir Robert Napier. Henry Stanley observed the death of emperor Tewodros. Just prior to his lead his men against a fruitless attack on the British who were attempting to capture him and the town of Magdala. The gates of the city fell and Tewodros was seen standing near a haystack. Two British soldiers observed him run behind the haystack and then they heard a shot. They found the emperor prostrate on the ground with the revolver still in his hand. He had shot himself in the mouth, the bullet exiting the back of his head.
This is an interesting CDV, circa late 1860-1870's. On the back of the CDV is handwritten in pencil,Theodore of Abyssinia, suicide 4/13/1868 at British Invasion. Interesting Colonial Africa Carte De Visite.
