Biography of King of Asiria Assur-nirari IV (1018-1013 a.C.)

(ASH-shur-na-ra-ri or Ashir-neither-ra-ri) Assyrian king, son and successor of Shalmaneser II and grandson of Assur-nasirpal I. According to the list of Eponyms, Ashur-nirari IV reigned six years, during which the limu chronological system was created in Assyria. Inscriptions or interesting facts about his reign, which coincided with the Aramaic thrust that had cornered the Assyrians to its primitive borders have not reached. Unless the causes are known, Ashur-nirari IV was displaced from the throne by his uncle Ashur-rabi II.
