He was born in 1181 and is considered the most important of the rulers of the Zagne Dynasty. They say that when he was a baby, his mother saw one day a swarm of bees around his cot. In the old Ethiopian perception, this was a sign that
he would become a king and labeled him "Lalibela," meaning "bees recognize his hegemony." The older brother of Lalibela and the owner of the
throne Harbay was alarmed when he learned his mother's predictions, and in the years that followed he engineered various ways to get him out
of the way. When once he was poisoned by a poisoned drink,
the young prince had been buried for three days, but the angels raised him up to heaven, where God commanded him to return to Roha - as was
today called Lalibela - and build churches he had not seen before then the world. God himself, says the legend, gave him the plans and instructions
for decorating the churches.
But even Harbay had his own insight in the meantime. So when Lalibela returned to life, he rushed to apologize to him and give up the kingdom
to his younger brother. With his enthusiasm, Lalibela gathered craftsmen from all over the country and began building the churches bearing his name collectively and considered by many to be the Eighth Miracle of the World.
