Ashur-nadin-shumi

Background

Ashur-nadin-shumi (d.694 BC) was the son of the Assyrian king Sennacherib, and an ancient King of Babylon. History[edit] As crown prince of Assyria, Ashur-nadin-shumi was installed by his father as King of Babylon about 699 BC. In 694 BC when Sennacherib attacked southern Elam in pursuit of Chaldaean rebels, the Elamites attacked Babylon. Ashur-nadin-shumi was captured and taken to Elam where he was probably killed.[1] References[edit] Jump up ^ Bertman, Stephen.
