Cornish town remembers its little princess – Western Morning News

February 4, 2013

According to the Western Morning News:

An intriguing chapter linking the last emperor of a 3,000-year-old African dynasty and a West Cornwall town has come to a close with the death of Ethiopian princess, Aida Desta.

Aida Desta was the… direct descendant of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba….

His granddaughter, who died in America last week, is still remembered in Penzance, where she and her sister Ruth attended the School of St Clare during the 1930s. After the communist revolution in 1974, Cornish people joined local MP David Harris in calling for the release of Aida and other members of the Ethiopian Royal Family.
