P.S. The real Arc of The Covenant - or a facsimile made from the original by the son of Solomon and Sheba - is in Ethiopia, in a monastery on an island in the middle of a lake. No word if there's anything inside.
Isn't that where the Holy Grail is?
(1) There is no record that King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba (her name was probably not Sheba) ever had a child or any relationship other than a conversation in the course of a formal state visit.
It is not attested in the Scriptures.
It is a legend among Ethiopians.
(2) The presence of the Ark in Ethiopia is also a folk legend which does not have a scrap of documentary or physical evidence - despite the efforts of many archaeologists to track it.
(3) According to the Ethiopians it is not in a monastery, but in a church.
(4) That church, the Chapel of the Tablet of Our Lady Maryam of Zion, is not located on an island in a lake but in the town of Aksum, right in the downtown area.
The only people who are allowed into the sanctuary are male Ethiopian Orthodox believers. There has never been any external confirmation of whether it's there, and probably most guests to the sanctuary never even see it.

Hasn't that been the job of the Ishmaelites since Abraham's times?
It is guarded and tended by a priest who is selected for the job for life by his predecessor.
