Queen of Sheba

My Story starts “Once upon a time in a far off land where the mighty river Nile turns into a cateract and boats can go no further, there once lived a queen. This queen was the cleverest person in the whole of Sheba. As she sat down on her throne  with a cup of tea and a copy of the Sheba Times the queen was struck by the leading article in the business section. "Israel on a high! Never have times been so good for investment".

When she was a little girl her father the king had seen how clever she was and sent her to Memphis to be educated at the best Egyptian colleges. She had been an outstanding student not only learning Egyptian perfectly but also excelling in all the arts and sciences. She also became an amazing athlete, musician, and orator. Towards the end of her studies the king was killed in a riding accident and in mourning she returned home to become queen of the small but very wealthy country of Sheba “
