Princess Tenagne-Work, the only surviving child of Emperor Haile-Selassie, died on Sunday at the age of 90. The date of her funeral ceremony is not yet known but her body will be buried at the Imperial Crypt of the Holy Trinity Cathedral, where the remains of Emperor Haile-Selassie were laid to rest.
The Princess was imprisoned along with members of the Imperial Family throughout years of the dictatorial rule of Mengistu Haile-Mariam, who was also responsible for the death of her father.
The late Princess had seven children, six from Ras Desta Damtew, who died fighting with the Italians, and one daughter from Ato Abebe Reta, one of Haile-Selassie's Ambassadors and Ministers.
One of her sons, Rear Admiral Eskindir Desta, was executed by the Dergue with sixty other ministers of the imperial regime.
Her daughter, Mary Abebe, died in 1974, and her son, Amha Desta, had died at a tender age.
Other descendants of the imperial family, most of whom are residing abroad, are expected to attend the funeral.
