Assyrian History vs. Immanuel Velikovsky
by Lujack Skylark
(1)1413-1376 B.C. Ashur-Uballit reigns over Assyria during the time Hittite king Suppiluliumas I 1428-1392 B.C. had stirred up the Mitanni vassal states to rebellion in 1410 B.C., after the Israeli judge Othniel had defeated the military forces of Tushratta (Cushan-Rishathaim). Both Hittite king Suppiluliumas and Assyrian king Ashur-Uballit had marriage alliances with Babylonian king Burnaburiah II 1428-1399 B.C. All three kings Suppiliumas, Ashur-Uballit and Burnaburiah II paid Egyptian king Akenaton 1424-1407 B.C. tribute. Burnaburish II complained to Akenaton about Ashur-Uballit's ambassador bringing the Egyptians tribute as mentioned in the Tel-Amarna letters Burnaburiah II considered Assyrians his subjects.
Mitanni rebel Artatama II 1406-1396 B.C. slew his father Tushratta and Tushratta's other son Shattiwaza/Mattiwaza fled to Babylon. 1398 B.C. Burnaburiah II son Kara-Indash II was killed in a revolt. Shattiwaza/Mattiwaza flees Babylon and winds up serving Hittite king Suppilulimas I Hittite empire. Assyrian king Ashur-Uballit then invades Babylon and places Nazi-Bugash 1398-1392 B.C. on the Babylonian throne. Artatama II's son general Shuttarna III then allies himself with the Assyrians.
1396-1392 B.C. Egyptian king Ay had slain Hittite king Suppiluluimas son Zannanza who had come to Egypt to marry Tut's widow. Hittite troops backing Mitanni vassal king Shattiwaza/Mattiwaza forces defeat Shuttarna's III army at Haran and Pakarripa, thus securing Mattiwaza's rule over Hanigalbat. Mattiwaza reigns there 1396-1357 B.C. Assyrian king Ashur-Uballit destroys the Mitanni vassal state of Nuzi.
Hittite king Suppiluliumas wins the war against Egyptian general Horemheb's troops but Egyptian prisoners of war carry plague. Egyptian king Tut 1406-1396 B.C. some modern researchers state Tut died of plague. Suppiluliumas and his son Arunwandas II 1392-1391 B.C. die of plague. Assyrian king Ashur-Uballit I 1413-1376 B.C. then appoints Assyrian born Kurigalzu II to the Babylonian throne. Egyptian king Horemheb 1392-1361 B.C. invasion attempt of the Hittite empire fails in Hittite king Mursilas II 1391-1363 B.C. reign.
(2)1375-1364 B.C.Assyrian king Enlil Nirari II faces an invasion by Kurigalzu II 1391-1369 B.C. who betrayed the Assyrians. The Assyrians deal a crushing defeat to the Babylonians.
(3)1363-1350 B.C. Assyrian king Arik-Dan-ili stretched the Assyrian border northward, westward and eastward leaving Babylonian king Nazi-Muruttash's 1368-1342 B.C. army alone. Hittite king Muwatallis 1363-1337 B.C. is at war with Egyptian kings Seti I 1360-1347 B.C. and Ramses II 1347-1280 B.C. Mattiwaza the king of Hanigalbat dies in 1357 B.C. Shattura I then reigns there 1357-1342 B.C.
(4)1349-1315 B.C. Assyrian king Adad-Nirari I while Hittite king Muwatallis fights the Egyptians, the Assyrian king replaces Mitanni king Shattura I with in 1342 B.C. with Washashshatta 1342-1314 B.C. Hittite king Mursilas III 1337-1330 B.C. is at civil war with his uncle Hattusilas III 1330-1301 B.C. Adad-Nirari I sent letters to Hattusilas III during the reign of Egyptian king Ramses II 1347-1280 B.C.
Somehow I can't see why Immanuel Velikovsky says Assyrian king Adad-Nirari I is Shamanesar III. Am I missing any research here?
