Lugalzaggesi (for sheezi)
In Response To: lugalzaggesi ()

Well, yes, I do recall that Hammurabi claimed at the end of his long kingly career to be ruler over "the four quarters of the world", or something to that effect.

I'm not sure what your mission is, but on this site we are trying to understand the dynamics of kingship, the actual royal family relationships, and how power was shared, contested, and transferred between kings of one dynasty and even between multiple dynasties. The present rote listing of dynasties reveals very little and is actually confusing because there is such a shallow understanding of who the kings actually were and how they were related to one another, as well as to the cities and regions that they ruled over.
