The Duce not only saw this as a first step in reestablishing his new "Roman Empire" but as revenge for the embarrassing defeat Italy had suffered during the First Italo-Abyssinian War (1895-1896), when the invading Italian army was annihilated at the Battle of Adwa (March 1, 1896) by the forces of Emperor Menelik II

's 100,000 troops.
Accordingly our presence here today gives us a renewed opportunity to pay tribute to the heroic African army led by Emperor Menelik II
, Empress Taitu, Ras Alula, Ras Makonnen and other eminent Ethiopians, which, by defeating the invading Italian forces, gave all Africa the powerful message that our Continent's struggles for liberation from imperialism and colonialism would emerge victorious.
