PLACE NAMES IN THE CHRONICLE OF KING GÄLAWDEWOS (1540–1559): A PROTOTYPE GEO-ANNOTATED TEXT OF THE ETHIOPIC TRADITION [Abstract ID: 0801-03]
Although Ethiopia is remarkable in ancient and medieval history, well documented in classical Gǝʿǝz texts, its historical geography has never been fully documented through collecting toponyms from historical texts. Infact, the abundant royal chronicles and local hagiographies, as well as numerous traveler accounts, have a considerable amount of information about local places that represent the historical geography of the county in various periods of time. In this context, to fill this gap, the study aimed to document and analyse place names in the chronicle of King Gälawdewos (1540–1559) focusing on the prototype geo-annotated text of the Ethiopic tradition.
