" In early 1868, the British force seeking King Tewodros of Ethiopia's surrender came to an agreement in which Kassa Mercha of Tigray would let the British pass through Tigray in exchange for money and weapons. When the British was leaving Ethiopia they rewarded Kassa for his cooperation [backstabbing, betraying and snitching] with artillery, muskets, rifles, and munitions, all worth about £500,000. Six months later, on 21 January 1872, Mercha Kassa of Tigray became the new emperor of Ethiopia, under the name Yohannes IV."
