Aksum's seemingly unending civilizational decline is finally reversed. The new Negus, Degna Djan, formulates a plan to reclaim the power of the autocratic kings of old and weaken the power of the church. With this power secured, he begins a prolonged series of successful wars against Aksum's neighbors, including the Agaw, Amhara, Omotic peoples, and Somalis. However, no matter the successes of his reign, Degna Djan also has an unfortunate legacy of setting into motion the events that would lead to the eventual decline and death of the Aksumite Empire.
