Ethiopia
. The MESAFINT (Ge\'ez : መሳፍንት? masāfint, modern mesāfint, singular Ge\'ez : መስፍን ? masfin, modern mesfin, "prince"), the hereditary nobility, formed the upper echelon of the ruling class. The MEKWANINT (Ge\'ez : መኳንንት? mäkʷanin, modern mäkʷenin singular Ge\'ez : መኳንንት? mäkʷanin, modern mäkʷenin or Amharic : መኮንን? mekonnen, "governor") were the appointed nobles, often of humble birth, who formed the bulk of the aristocracy.
