Elizabeth of Toro is a Ugandan princess, lawyer, model, and diplomat, the Batebe of the kingdom of Toro.
Life and TimesEdit
Elizabeth was born in 1936 to the king of Toro, Rudikii III. She was well-educated, went to two boarding schools, and graduated from Cambridge University with a law degree. Elizabeth became a model, but she was afraid of what was to become of her in her life. Uganda was under attack by Prime Minister Milton Obote, who was overthrown by one of history's most wicked dictators, Idi Amin, who seized power over his country and slew a great many. Elizabeth was appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs by Amin himself, but managed to escape from his tyranny in 1975. Four years later, she returned to Uganda to help with its free elections, which were won by Milton Obote. Elizabeth married Wilbur Nyabongo, the son of a prince, in 1981. Obote was finally ousted and replaced by Yoweri Museveni. Unfortunately, Wilbur was killed in an airplane crash. Elizabeth devoted herself to charity work and remains an ambassador to Uganda's government.
