ABSTRACT
The article traces the history of the Blue Nile during the nineteenth century. From the 1820s onward, a succession of Turkish governor-generals followed the river from Cairo, Egypt, almost to Ethiopian border. These Turks were the worst explorers and colonizers. They extended their power until Sudan. They explored merely to destroy and educated nobody except as a convenience.
