Who is king Lalibela?

King Lalibela is one of the famous eleven kings of the Zagwe Dynasty and King Lalibela was the famous of all the Kings for having created New Jerusalem by having carved all the eleven rock-hewn churches under the same rock mountain in the middle of the Lasta Mountains. King Lalibela was born on 29th December (January 7), 1101 E.C. He had come to power in the year 1157E.C. He started creating the New Jerusalem (carving the rock hewn churches in the rock mountain) in 1167 E.C. and accomplished carving the churches in 1190E.C. King Lalibela died on 12th June (June 19), 1197E.C. There had prevailed eleven kings during the reigning period of the Zagwe Dyanasty amongst them four of them are canonized by the Ethiopian Church as saints and the four priest kings are the most prominent whose names are St. Yimrehane Kristos, St. Guebremariam, St. Lalibela and St. Nakotolaab. It was as a result of their greater contribution for the growth of Christianity in their empire and their priesthood that the Ethiopian Church had canonized them as sains. So they are still known as the four priest kings of the Zagwe Daynasty.
