Dejatch Alamayou, King Theodores Son, July 1868
Dejatch Alamayou, King Theodore's Son, July 1868. The young orphaned prince cradles a little white doll and stares sadly into space. Dejatch Alamayou was taken to England after the British defeat of the Ethiopians at the battle of Magdala and the suicide of his father, Tewodros (Theodore) II, emperor of Ethiopia, in April 1868. Queen Victoria took an interest in Alamayou and saw to his education and protection, placing him in the care of Captain Tristram Speedy, who, like Cameron, had a home on the Isle of Wight. Speedy brought the child to Cameron's house shortly after his arrival in England.
