(558 words)

Author(s): Gebreyes Beyene, Solomon
Biography The identity of the author of the Chronicle of Emperor Gälawdewos is not given in the text or in any other contemporary document, though the Chronicle does contain some clues about him.

Date of Birth: 1691–5 Place of Birth: Gondar, Ethiopia Date of Death: 1755–9 Place of Death: Unknown BiographyThe author of the Chronicle  of Iyasu II is not identified in the text itself.
