The details

Takla Maryam (Ge'ez: ተክለ ማርያም takla māryām "Plant of Mary," Amharic: tekle māryām, throne name Hezba Nañ ህዝበ ናኝ hizba nāñ) was Emperor (nəgusä nägäst) (1430–1433) of Ethiopia. A member of the Solomonic dynasty, he was the second son of Yeshaq I.

Manoel de Almeida remarks that the descendants of Takla Maryam had been taken from Amba Geshen by Emperor Zara Yaqob and "exiled to hot lands where there are many diseases"; when his son Emperor Baeda Maryam I, early in his reign, attempted to redress this injury by recalling them from exile, they slew his messengers. Although Baeda Maryam I promptly took punitive measures (which included decapitating 80 of their members), in de Almeida's day they were "still rigorously watched".
