Alexander The Great -- Wasn't so g-r-e-a-t after all...he was metrosexual [gay] and he missed the opportunity to mar his undefeated record.

Read on...


-----------------------------
EMPRESS OF ETHIOPIA (332 B.C.)

Alexander reached Kemet (Ancient Egypt) in 332 B.C., on his world conquering rampage. But one of the greatest generals of the ancient world was also the Empress of Ethiopia. This formidable black Queen Candace, was world famous as a military tactician and field commander. Legend has it that Alexander could not entertain even the possibility of having his world fame and unbroken chain of victories marred by risking a defeat, at last, by a woman. He halted his armies at the borders of Ethiopia and did not invade to meet the waiting black armies with their Queen in personal command.

*Queen Candace is actually a general title for at least [4] Ethiopian Queens. One of which was waiting for Alexander the Great.

"Kandake" (KAN-DA-key) was the ancient name used.

One of my favorite topics... Smile

"Ethiopia" was actually one of the terms the Greeks used for Africa generally; it described the dark-skin of the black peoples they knew of. The people Alexander encountered in this account would have been Nubians, not the Axumite/Abyssinian people that we today refer to as Ethiopians.

And as Fine alludes to, there was no actual "Queen Candace." Candace is the Roman rendering of what we might more effectively render as Kandake, (Kah- Ndah-keh) which basically meant "Queen" in the language of Nubia. The Romans used the letter C to make the K sound. During the period when the city of Meroe was the center of Nubian culture, there were many rulers, including four known "Candaces." The names of these four were Amanitere, Amanishakhete, Bartare, and Shenakdakhete. I wouldn't be able to tell you which one was the one in charge in 332 B.C.

European accounts of history consider that period the essence of Egypt enabling them (Europeans) to take the 'black' of Africa out of the 'civilization-buioding' business.

It still can piss me off.

Let me get this straight... in a topic like this, you attempt to dis? Does that mean you get mad when somebody else posts info on a topic? I know more real ancient African history than you could ever hope to know, so these stupid attempts at "correcting" somebody not only are out of place in a discussion about it, but are hilarious because they're misplaced to begin with.

The first thing you should understand is that the Meroitic alphabet is different from the modern Roman alphabet used in English. The Meroitic alphabet was the alphabet used by the Nubians at the time of the Candaces, in case you didn't know. Therefore, there is not always one set spelling in English for words that natively used a different alphabet. For example, Arabic names like Hussein can also be spelled Husayn, Hossein, or Hosayn.

Conventionally, Amanitere can also be spelled Amanitore. But it is never Amaritore, because it's cleared that that second consonant was an N sound, not an R. Similarly, Amanishakhete's name did not have a B in it. Therefore, both of your first two "corrections" are wrong.

Your third "correction" wasn't much of a correction; you just added a name, which is fine. Perhaps you haven't heard of Bartare, but I would suggest a Google search. Except that judging from the small number of Google hits for the name you gave, "Amanikhastashan" is probably not the preferred spelling either.

And your 4th correction, the only one you got right, is off by a vowel. Although the Meroitic script didn't use vowels (and hasn't been fully deciphered yet), I'll give you that one, but don't ever let me catch you being off by a vowel here or there.

You're so stupid that you look for the slightest little thing to attack, because you can't hang in the presence of people who actually know what they're talking about. You don't want to try and learn something from others, because if you can't promote the fantasy that you're a teacher exclusively, then it means you don't know everything. Well, newsflash: you're not a teacher, or a scholar, and you're not knowledgeable about ANYTHING in particular. You shouldn't get defensive at the worry that somebody may steal your thunder. You don't have any thunder to steal.

But even so, I wasn't dissing you when I posted, and no intelligent woman would have thought I was. I am now; don't get me wrong.
Amazing!

I meant it was time for "me" to go to the library.

Your negative discourse, is ugly ...and very telling...Vox--"master of the universe"!

Fine is not exempt and is guilty of a few of the ills from above, how many do you claim?

Eek Confused Eek

Wow... That was some misinterpretation, huh?

A couple of weeks back, somebody in this board attacked me when I didn't think it was called for, and I think I'm just in that mode right now. Damn, Fine, I'm sorry for all of that...

Apology Accepted, Vox.

"You" lead me to the four queens. I tried to be objective and my response came off cold and calculated...sorry.

Side Thought--Yeah! Attacks and the Act of blaqs discrediting blaqs is an artform here!

In other words, you want no attention drawn to your dishonorable behavior. What's worst is not only persisting with it but acting as if some else was at fault for calling you out on your dishonorable behavior.

Now, if it wasn't dishonorable and I'm wrong in some way then you can SEE to answering my simple question. Considering how you have refused then all suspicions, etc. are validated and the fraud that you are, in this instance, is only further illuminated as you try to paint the picture as if you're not the one.

And no. Your comments didn't come off as "cold" they went over exactly as they were: DISHONEST. And there's nothing worst than a dishonest person trying to pertrate as if someone else is misrepresenting them/something when, in truth, it is that dishonest person, you in this case, who should be adult enough to own up to their tactics or at least not drift into further dishonor by pretending they were innocent.

But, go ahead... Tell us what your list (after Vox's list) was for. By trying that "LIE-brary" scheme, you only discredit yourself.

And, yet, none of this would have been an issue if you didn't try to turn that sh*t. The "library" thingy could have been passed but you had to try to feign the "innocent victim" role...

"Your negative discourse is ugly... and very telling... Vox"

Yeah, FINE, but what are all your shenanigans saying about you?

Damn, I don't know what's so hard about being HONEST... on the damn internet!!
Yes! I do have the STICKY!

I *stick* TO THE POINT.
I *stick* it to you.
I *stick* around after all your weaseling and evasions... just to *stick* it to you again.

And, as pesty as I can be, I keep STICKin' those bothersome questions right up where you can't fake like you didn't see them. And, so... You make a conscious, the most conscious choice to cower in the face of the portal of Truth (via answer) that would set you free... Or STICK you in the joint.

No wonder why I hear The 5th being plead amongst the roar of the Cricket Chorus. tongue
Vox--I am currently at the library--as promised.

All signs point to -- Queen Shanakdakhete. She is most likely the Ethiopian Queen that sat waiting for Alexander the Great at the borders of Ethiopia.

The timetables are way off, however...

Dr. Chancellor Williams gives the "near confrontational meeting" as 332BC.

However...

Queen Shanakdakhete's chronological position is much debated (i.e. I wonder why, my insert). Dunham suggested 177-155BC, Hintze 180-170BC, Wenig 170-150BC, Shinnie 170-160BC, Welsby (resuming Hintze's dating) 180-170BC. Torak suggests, with more caution, the end of the 2nd century BC, and considers this Queen as King Taneyidamini's direct predessor. -- http://www.arkamani.org/arkamani-library/meroitic_confe...%200039%200051-0054]
