General Napier achieved his greatest fame as an army officer when he led the expedition of 1868 against Emperor Tewodros II (Emperor Theodore) of Ethiopia. The Ethiopian ruler was holding a number of Protestant missionaries hostage in his mountain capital of Magdala, as well as two British diplomats who had unsuccessfully attempted to free them.

After months of planning and other preparations, the advance guard of engineers landed at Zula on the Red Sea to construct a port on 30 October 1867; Napier himself arrived in Zula on 2 January 1868, and on 25 January led his troops south in the Ethiopian highlands.
