The Original story behind Medusa.

Medusa is probably one of the most misunderstood goddesses of all time. She has a beautiful story that no one knows about and a couple of years ago I discovered her story.

Ethiopia is the only country in Africa that has never been colonized, it has been occupied at times but it has never been colonized. A long time ago Ethiopia was known for their “Queen Candace’s.” they were called Candace. And the name “Queen Candace” was their title so there was a Queen Candace for multiple generations as the title was given to a woman who had power and beauty.  The Queen Candace had a very powerful position in society. The Queen Candace wasn’t always married to the King,  (in the story that I’m about to share with you this Queen Candace was actually the King’s sister and she was known not only for her power and intelligence but for being very beautiful).

The story goes that after Alexander the Great conquered Kemet (present day Egypt) he then came around to battle with Ethiopia and my mind is a little fuzzy about what happened the first day (it’s been a while since I’ve processed the story), however I believe that it was the second day that he went into battle and he was met with Queen Candace sitting on an elephant along with her army and the great Alexander the Great was unable to get his hands on Ethiopia. He returned back to his home, Ethiopia unconquered and tales began to spread about the battle to demonized Ethiopia and specially it’s queen, and that’s where Medusa was born. Queen Candace had long dreadlocks and she was inspiration behind Medusa and the snakes on Medusa’s head. 

If you have every heard of Medusa’s story and felt that deep in your spirit there was more to her story. Gorgeous you were right.
