Biography of King of Asiria Assur-nirari V (754-745 a.C.)

(ASH-shur-na-ra-ra or Ashir ni-ra-ri) Assyrian king, third son of Adad-nirari III , and successor of his brother Ashur-dan III on the imperial throne. A campaign against Arpad, the capital of Bit Agusi, ended with a treaty - which has become incomplete - signed with the King of that country, is known of his reign, Mati'ilu, which aims to curb the thrust of the by then expansive Kingdom of Urartu. References of some operations surveillance and punishment against Namri, and quote from such Assyrian king in an inscription of Sarduri II of Urartu have also become. In 746 BC erupted in the imperial capital (Kalakh) a rebellion that ended with the assassination of the King. The throne passed into the hands of Tiglath-Pileser III, probably a usurper or, as argue some asiriologos, a member of the Royal family, perhaps a son or a brother.
