And indeed, the strength of the woman who emerges will surprise even those who know her legend, that of the Queen of the South."--Jacket.
Although most of ancient Ethiopian history has been overlooked, stolen, misrepresented and ignored by the western world, some Ethiopian traditions are so glorious that all of the power and deception of the west have failed to stamp them out. One such story is that of Makeda, the Queen of Sheba, and King Solomon. Ethiopian women of antiquity were legendary for their extreme beauty, and power. Especially great were the Queens of Ethiopia; Queen of Sheba (960 B.C.), and Candace of Meroe and her defeat of Alexander the Great (332 B.C.).

The Bible prophesies the Queen of the South will rise at the judgment, but did not give her name or any other detail about her. The Queen of the South in Matthew 12:42, authored by Soleilmavis Liu, is a strong and well-reasoned piece that demonstrates who the Queen of the South is, by using plenty of historical facts. It lets readers understand where the Ends of the Earth are, how the Queen of the South will come from the Ends of the Earth and what the judgment is. Ultimately, readers will come to know God's great plan regarding the Queen of the South. However, Satan and his followers will persecute her. Soleilmavis hopes that her presentation sheds new light on this important person, who will play a decisive role in the history. This book is a step in that direction.
