Background

Waddell's chronology or Waddell's king list is an Ancient Near Eastern chronology developed by the British polyhistor Laurence Waddell in his book, Egyptian Civilization: Its Sumerian Origin and Real Chronology, published in 1930.[1][2][3][4][5] Waddell's primary chronology was compiled from various Sumerian king lists, Egyptian list of pharaohs, the Bhagavata Purana, Mahabharata, Rigveda and numerous Indus Valley Civilization seals and other monuments and relics and sources, some of which he had deciphered himself.[2] It was entitled "Dated Chronological List of Sumerian or Early Aryan Kings from the Rise of Civilization to the Kassi Dynasty" and documented an alleged list of world emperors as follows: No. Names in Sumerian King Lists and monuments Date BCE (approximate) Indian list names 1 Ukusi of Ukhu City or Udu, Uduin, or Odin, Indar, Induru, Dur, Pur, Sakh, Sagaga, Zagg, Gaur, or Adar First Sumerian Dynasty 3378–3349 BCE Ikshvāku or Indra or Sakko or Pururavas 2 Azag Ama Basam or Bakus, Tasia, Mukhla, Gin, Gan or Kan or Nimmirud 3348–3337 BCE Ayus, Ama-Basu or Bikukshi-Nimi Azag Bakus or Gan at Unuk, Enoch or Erech City 3336–3273 BCE As Above 3 Naksha, Enuzu, Anenzu, Unnusha, In, Enu Second Sumerian Dynasty 3272–3248 BCE Nahusha, Anenas or Janak 4 Udu, Uduk 3247–3242 BCE Udā-vasu, Yadu, Yayati, (?)

Conventional lists separate Sargon from Menes by around five hundred years. Gabriel Moshenka however mentions that some elements of his work "while unquestionably esoteric, were not so far from the academic mainstream as we might now suppose".[6] References[edit] Jump up ^ Duncan Macnaughton (1932).
