Die assyrischen Königstitel und –epitheta

vom Anfang bis Tukulti-Ninurta I und seinen Nachfolgern

Vladimir Sazonov

Royal ideology played a very significant role in the constitution of ancient Near Eastern states, from Sumer, Akkad, and Ancient Egypt to the Assyrian, Babylonian, Hittite, and Persian empires. A centrally important part of royal ideology and state propaganda was constituted by the royal titulary — titles and epithets that were used for the justification of the royal power and often reflected the ambitions and political agenda of the kings. This book gives an overview of the development of the Assyrian royal titulary from the time of its emergence in the city of A┼í┼íur in the Sargonic period (2334-2154 BCE) until the end of the Bronze Age, the so-called Late Bronze Age collapse, which took place in the 13th-12th centuries BCE during the reigns of Tukulti-Ninurta I (1242-1206), one of the most powerful Middle Assyrian kings, and his successors.
