Babylonian History (2321-2221 BC)

The kings of Babylon’s Dynasty 1 (B-1) that ruled during this period were the following:

Unrecorded period lasted 23 years (2321-2298 BC).

Ukusi (B1-01)– He was also known as Puru I, Ikshavu, and Cush (12th gen). He was Ham’s son and Noah’s grandson. He is credited with ruling Babylonia for 30 years (2298-2268 BC). A portion of this time, however, may have been taken up with migration. In fact, the Babylonian Empire was founded by Ukusi’s son Azag.

Azag (B1-02) – He was also known as Nimrod (13th gen). He was Ukusi’s son, Ham’s grandson, and Noah’s great-grandson. He ruled Babylonia for 42 years (2268-2226 BC). He was a mighty hunter. He was also an empire builder, for he built the cities of Akkad, Babylon, Erech, and Calneh, and he undoubtedly initiated Babylonia’s territorial expansion. His wife may have been Semiramus, to whom various legends accord a relationship with Nimrod, a reign of 42 years, and a city-building career similar to that of Nimrod. Both are associated with claims of divinity.

Khetm (B1-03) – He was also known as Dukh and Vri-Taka. He was Azag’s brother, Ukusi’s son, Cush’s grandson, and Noah’s great-grandson. He ruled Babylonia for, I estimate, 7 years (2226-2219 BC), the first 5 years (2226-2221 BC) of which fell in this period.

 The Peleg Disturbance occurred in 2221 BC, possibly when the orbits of the earth and the comet Venus nearly intersected. Probably a tectonic upheaval broke up the earth’s single land mass (Pangrea) into the continents and major islands that exist today – an event which the Hebrews called “the Division of the Land.”

—Period 3A(2) – Rise of Babylon (2221-2070 BC)—

Babylon’s 1st Dynasty (B1) continued

The kings of Babylon’s 1st Dynasty (B1) continued ruling Babylon during this period.

Khetm (B1-03) – He was also known as Dukh, Tukh, and Vri-taka. He ruled Babylonia for, I estimate, 7 years (2226-2219 BC), the last 2 years (2221-2219 BC) of which fell in this period.

Circa 2219-2211 BC – (B1-04) Puru II – He was Khetm’s son. He was also known as Puru-in and Ro. He ruled Babylonia for, I estimate, 8 years (2219-2211 BC).

Zagissi (B1-05) – He usurped the throne. He ruled Babylon for 25 years (2211-2186 BC).

Sargon (B1-06) – He was also known as Guni and Sharguni in Babylon and Ka-ap in Egypt. He ruled Babylonia for 55 years (2186-2131 BC). He seized the throne from Zagissi and commenced building an empire that, at its peak, extended from the Indus Valley in the east to the British Isles in the west. The primary force behind the expansion of this empire was Sargon’s second son, Mannis-tussu, who was also known as Aha-men, Hor-aha, and Menes in Egypt. He was one of history’s greatest military leaders. Initially Sargon dispatched Mannis-tusu eastward at the head of an army to extend Babylonian rule into the Indus Valley. After a successful campaign and a triumphal return to Babylon, Sargon sent him southward in 2166 BC to solidify Babylonian rule in Egypt, where he unified the land in 2139 BC and then governed it under his father for 8 years (2139-2131 BC) and under his brother Rimush for 12 years (2131-2119 BC) as the first pharaoh of Egypt’s 1st Dynasty (E01).

Rimush (B1-07) – He was also known as Mush. He was Sargon’s eldest son. After his father’s death, he ruled Babylonia for 12 years (2131-2119 BC). When he died, he was succeeded by his younger brother, Mannis-tusu, who was also ruling Egypt at the time.

Mannis-tusu (B1-08) – He was also known as Aha-men, Hor-aha, and Menes in Egypt and Aha-manj, Asa-manja, and Manasyu in the Indus Valley. He was Rimush’s younger brother and Sargon’s second son. After his brother’s death, he ruled both Babylonia and Egypt for 15 years (2119-2104 BC). During this time, he conducted at least one military campaign to the west as far as the British Isles, where he seized its tin mines and died from a bee sting.

Naram-sin (B1-09) – He was also known as Athothis I, Djer, Kourodes, Narmer, and Zer-ta in Egypt. He was Mannis-tusu’s son and Sargon’s grandson. He ruled Babylonia for 57 years (2104-2047 BC), the first 34 years (2104-2070 BC) of which fell in this period. Babylon was powerful and prosperous at this time, and he was probably the monarch who undertook to build a tower to heaven in order to give Babylon a mighty reputation. The tower was destroyed in his regnal year 34.

The Terah Disturbance occurred in 2070 BC, possibly when the orbits of the earth and the comet Venus nearly intersected. Probably a titanic electric discharge between the two bodies confounded the Babylonians – or possibly all of mankind’s – ability to communicate in a single language, destroyed the Tower of Babel, and devastated much of the surrounding region.

— Period A(3) – Rise of Civilizations (2070-1870 BC)—

Babylon’s 1st Dynasty (B1) continued

The kings of Babylon’s 1st Dynasty (B1) continued to rule Babylon into this period, but the empire went into a steep decline following th devastation wrought by the Terah Disturbance.

Naram-sin (B1-09) continued – He was also known as Athothis I, Djer, Kourodes, Narmer, and Zer-ta in Egypt. He ruled Babylonia for 57 years (2104-2047 BC), the last 23 years (2070-2047 BC) of which fell in this period. These 23 years were a time of chaos and confusion. Although Naram-sin continued to rule in Egypt until 2041 BC, he lost control of Babylonia in 2047 BC.

I am uncertain of the sequence of kings in Babylonia after 2047BC.

Sharguni-Eri (B-10) – He was also known as Gani-Eri and perhaps Sharkalisharri. He ruled Babylonia for an indeterminate length of time.

The 1st Terah Threat occurred in 2020 BC, possibly when the orbits of the comet Venus and the earth nearly intersected.

Dudu (B-11) – He was also known as Dudu, Spanios, Udimu, and Usaphaidos in Egypt, where he was a co-regent with Aristarchus for 20 years (1993-1973 BC). He ruled Babylonia for a while, but the dates of his rule there are not known.

Shudur-Kib (B-12) – He may also have been known as Shu-Turul. He too ruled Bablylonia for a while, but the dates of his rule are not known. After it, the history of early Babylonia peters out.

The 2nd Terah Threat occurred in 1970 BC, possibly when the orbits of the comet Venus and the earth nearly intersected.

The 3rd Terah Threat occurred in 1920 BC, possibly when the orbits of the comet Venus and the earth nearly intersected.

The Abraham Disturbance occurred 1870 BC, possibly when the orbits of the earth and the comet Venus nearly intersected and a titanic electric discharge between the two bodies destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah and much of the surrounding region and a titanic earthquake created the Great African Rift or its greater expansion, thereby eliminating the Vale of Siddim and creating the Dead Sea.
