The Kingdom of Aksum The Ethiopian kingdom of Aksum has been the subject of many legends. Some say it’s the lost kingdom of the Queen of Sheba, while others say it’s the final resting place of the Ark of the Covenant. In reality, Aksum was an international trading power because it had access to both the Nile and Red Sea trading routes. Commerce thrived and, eventually, most Ethiopian peoples were under Aksumite rule. Its power and prosperity allowed it to expand into Arabia. A third century Persian philosopher listed it as one of the world’s four greatest kingdoms, alongside Rome, China, and Persia. In the fourth century, the kingdom adopted Christianity and continued to thrive long after Rome fell. In the 7th century, the kingdom began to decline. There were numerous reasons for this. One was climate change, which harmed crop production. Another factor was the Arab conquest of the Red Sea coastline. This caused Aksum to lose its primary trade advantage over its neighbors. By the eleventh or twelfth century, the Aksumite kingdom was replaced by the Zagwe dynasty and time covered up their prior power and dominance. 9. The Silla Kingdom The Silla Kingdom was one of the longest-standing royal dynasties ever. It’s rule began on the Korean Peninsula in 57 B.C. and came to an end in A.D. 935. A monarch named Bak Hyeok-geo-se founded the Silla kingdom. According to legend, he wasn’t born, but hatched from a mysterious egg in the forest. His queen was born from the ribs of a dragon. He created a culture that developed into a centralized, hierarchical society with a wealthy aristocratic class. Though there’s a lack of graves so we don’t know what they did with their deceased, archaeologists have found a variety of goods made by the Silla, including a gold-and-garnet dagger and a golden crown. In 668, the Silla unified Korea and began the Unified Silla dynasty, which continued until the kingdom came to its end in the tenth century. During the history of the dynasty, there were three queens, one of whom integrated Buddhism into the Silla culture. In 935, peasant uprisings brought an end to the dynasty. It’s pretty rare that peasant uprisings are able to bring down a whole dynasty! The people have spoken! 8. The Kush Kingdom The origins of the Kush Kingdom began around 8000 B.C. Archaeologists found ceramics dating from that period around the Kush capital city of Kerma. As early as 2400 B.C., Kush’s urban society was highly stratified and complex, supported by large-scale agriculture. Its northern neighbor, Egypt, exploited and conquered Kush from 1500 to 1000 B.C. The tables, though, turned in 750 B.C. when Kush conquered Egypt and they became even greater than the Egyptians if you can believe that! For over 100 years, Kushite pharaohs ruled a territory that outstripped the Egyptians. They revived pyramid building and promoted construction across the Sudan. An Assyrian invasion ousted them from Egypt and brought an end to the Egyptian and Kushite cultural exchange. The Kushites went south and reestablished themselves at Meroe on the southeast bank of the Nile. They broke away from Egyptian influence and developed a form of writing called Meroitic. Unfortunately, their script remains untranslated, casting much of Kush’s history in the dark. The last king of Kush passed in 300 A.D. However, why his kingdom declined and ended remains a mystery. 7. The Kingdom of Yam What little we know about the Kingdom of Yam comes from a few texts from Old Kingdom Egypt. We know it existed as a trading partner and possible rival of Old Kingdom Egypt. However, for a long time its precise location remained unknown and as elusive as that of the mythical Atlantis. Egyptian explorers found funerary inscriptions on the tomb of a governor for Upper Egypt named Harkhuf. In what is called “The Autobiography of Harkhuf”, he describes Yam was a land of “incense, ebony, leopard skins, elephant tusks, and boomerangs.” The inscriptions claim overland journeys to Yam exceeded seven months. Since Harkhuf made several expeditions in his lifetime, he would know. However, Egyptologists first placed Yam just a few hundred miles from the Nile. Conventional wisdom dictated the ancient Egyptians could not have crossed the inhospitable Saharan Desert.
