Hi  delaplla!

Haile Selassie was the Ethiopean Emperor that led resistance against
the 1935-1940 Italian invasions.

I am providing references where you will be able to verify that this
is the correct answer.

?More than 25 years have passed since his death, but his legacy still
lives on. Haile Selassie is one of the founding fathers of the OAU and
is viewed by many as the figurehead of African independence, for his
defiance against the Italian colonial invasion in the 1930s.!



Emperor Haile Selassie

?Ras Tefari, the son of Ras Mekonnen (governor of Harar), was crowned
under the name Emperor Haile Selassie in November 1930.?

?In October 1935, The Italian army, with order from Mussolini, invaded
northern part of Ethiopia i.e. Adigrat, Adwa and Mekele. Haile
Selassie appealed to the League of Nations of which Ethiopia is a
member state, but his appeal was completely ignored. The League of
Nations, especially Britain and France, turned a blind eye to what was
happening in Ethiopia, effectively giving Italy a green light to
occupy Ethiopia.?
