Sarwe Iyasus (Ge'ez ሣርወ ኢየሱስ śārwa iyasūs, "Army of Jesus," Amh. sārwe iyesūs; throne name Mehreka Nañ ምሕርከ ናኝ miḥrika nāñ "distributor of your [the Lord's] mercy") was nəgusä nägäst of Ethiopia (1433), and a member of the Solomonic dynasty. He was the son of Takla Maryam.

According to E. A. Wallis Budge, Sarwe Iyasus ruled for either four or eight months, and died of plague.[1] According to James Bruce, some of the Ethiopian lists of rulers omit his name.[2]
