What did Emperor Tewodros II look like?
Not like this - the image you see on T-shirts and walls all over Addis
Definitely not like this
Here's the closest thing I've found to, if not a life study, then one directly from death. A sketch made soon after the fall of Magdala from a book of photos I found in a regimental museum. It's not how I expected him to look. But you can imagine him being Alamayu's father.
