Early years[ edit ] Alula was born in Mennewe , a village in Tembien , the son of Engda Eqube, a farmer of modest origins. Erlich records an oral tradition that the young Alula distinguished himself by being the one who captured king Tekle Giyorgis in the battle where Emperor Yohannes crushed his opponent 11 July However, in order to enhance his position at the Imperial court, he divorced his wife and married Woizero Amlesu Araya, daughter of Ras Araya Dimtsu, the powerful and much respected uncle of Emperor Yohannes IV. His second marriage was purely for political reasons, to improve his legitimacy with the local aristocracy, who did not hide their disapproval at seeing the son of a peasant reach this stature. Alula demonstrated his military skill in the Battle of Gundet and Gura , which were fought in November and March respectively, where he routed the Egyptian forces. Emperor Yohannes badly needed a man with these skills at the moment, for Ras Woldemichael Solomon was in revolt in Hamasien ; Alula was promoted to Ras and sent to deal with this unruly aristocrat, who fled to Bogos.
