Menelik II - Emperor of Ethiopia

Menelik II (1889-1913) - Emperor of Ethiopia. During the 1890s, Menelik heard about the modern method of executing criminals using electric chairs, and he ordered three for his kingdom. When the chairs arrived, Menelik learnt they would not work, as Ethiopia did not yet have an electrical power industry. Rather than waste his investment, Menelik used one of the chairs as his throne!! Date: 1904
