The Middle Era(Gondar)

Gondar was the first capital to unite Ethiopians as an Orthodox nation, changing it from a Catholic nation, under their converted king following help he received from Portuguese. This king abdicated in favour of his son, Fasilledes, who began, in 1632, the castle/palace building. There are at least 6 castles within the defensive wall, built by a succession of kings, over a period of 236 years, so Gondar is called "the Camelot of Ethiopia".
