Haile Selassie was forced into exile in 1936 after Italy invaded in 1935. After the British recaptured Addis Ababa in January 1941, Selassie was reinstated as emperor.
According to the official website of Fairfield House, Selassie was very fond of Bath in England (the location of Fairfield House) and the city honored him in 1954 with the Freedom of the City. Selassie bequeathed the house to the city of Bath after his return to his homeland.
