Andreyas (Ge'ez: አንድሬያስ? indrēyās "Andrew") was Emperor (nəgusä nägäst) (1429–1430) of Abyssinia, and a member of the Solomonic dynasty. He was the oldest son of Yeshaq I. The British explorer James Bruce, who wrote one of the earliest European histories of Abyssinia, reports little more than Andreyas was buried with his father at the Tadbaba Maryam monastery.[1]
