The term (H)abesha refers to the South Semitic-speaking group of people whose cultural, linguistic, and in certain cases, ancestral origins trace back to those people who ruled the Axumite Empire.
Peoples referred to as "Habesha" today include the Amhara and Tigray-Tigrinya ethnic groups of Ethiopia and Eritrea, who are predominantly Oriental Christians and have been since AD 332.
