Excerpt: Ras Desta Damtew (ca. 1896 - 24 February 1937) was an Ethiopian noble, an army commander, and a son-in-law of Emperor Haile Sellassie I. Born at the village of Maskan (in the contemporary Gurage Zone), Desta Damtew was the second son of Fitawrari Damtew Ketena. His older brother was Abebe Damtew. In 1896, Fitawrari Damtew Ketena was killed at the Battle of Adwa. As boys, Lij Desta Damtew and his brother Lij Abebe Damtew served at the Imperial Palace in Addis Ababa as pages to Emperor Menelik II and Empress Taitu Bitul. Desta Damtew went on to serve in the Dowager Empress Taitu's household at the Palace on Mt. Entoto after the death of Menelik II. In 1916, Desta Damtew supported Tafari Makonnen against Lij Iyasu.

According to his obituary in The Times he was "a tall and princelike figure, ascetically handsome in face and reserved in manner.
