The Sheba Imperial Empire and Kingdoms had over 350 major kingdoms of nations and several thousand chiefdom nations throughout the African Continent.

They migrated from their ancestral North-African regions downwards in the 1800s and then outside Africa by the mid-1900s. Some of the tribes migrated in 1889 and 1911 after over 150 villages in Aswan Dam were flooded to form the dam in North Sudan. They settled in New Halfa, Sheba, New Nubia/Egypt, Merowe, Khartoum, and West Africa.

Due to colonial activities between 1913 – 1915, they further moved to Guadeloupe, Barbados and finally, settled in Trinidad and Tobago. The Imperial Matriarch Iris Meryre ‘Ra II was born in 1916 and he travelled later to the U.S. and Africa.
