Arsi Province information

Location of Arsi within the Ethiopian Empire

Arsi Province (Amharic: አርሲ) was a province of Ethiopian Empire with its capital at Asella. Historically a part of the Emirate of Harar until its invasion by Menelik and subsequent incorporation into modern Ethiopia. The province was reduced to a Zone of the Oromia Region with the adoption of the new constitution in 1995. In more ancient times, the region is seemingly related to the Harla.[1]

Both the Zone and the former province are occupied by the Arsi Oromo, who inhabit both the former Bale and Arsi provinces.
