Meaning of the baby name ASSUR-NAZIR-PAL.


ASSUR-NAZIR-PAL.  "Assur protects (his) Son."  A great king of Assyria.  He was the son of Tugulti-Ninip II. and nearly the whole of his reign of twenty-five years was spent in wars undertaken to enlarge the kingdom of Assyria, these wars being characterised with more than usual cruelty on the part of the victor.  His first wars were against the bordering states of North Assyria, then the Eastern provinces of the Tigris.  After conquering all his opponents, and impaling or flaying alive the chiefs of the conquered cities, he marched into Syria, and warred as far as the Mediterranean sea, where he received tribute of the Phenicians and the coast towns.  Returning to Nineveh, he rebuilt the chief temples of that city, and also the city of Calah, which had been founded by Shalmaneser I. and had been destroyed during the reigns of the weak monarchs who succeeded him.  He then constructed a preserve of wild animals for the chase there, and afterwards excavated a canal from that city to the river Zab.  He was also a prudent but merciless legislator, and was succeeded by his son, Shalmaneser II. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
