Meaning of the baby name SHABAKA.


SHABAKA.  Shabaka I., the first king of the XXVth dynasty.  He was the son of Kashta, and the brother of Amen-iritis, and was born at Akesh in Ethiopia.  Having raised a mingled army of Negroes and Ethiopians, he invaded and conquered Egypt from Nubia to the Mediterranean, taking Bak-en-ran-f prisoner, and burning him to death.  Palestine being at that time invaded by the Assyrians, Shabaka marched to the relief of Hoshea, king of Israel, but arrived too late to save Samaria from capture by Shalmaneser VI.  He, however, made some conquests in Palestine, for on his return to Egypt he recorded the land of Syria as one of his tributary states.  Shortly afterwards Sargon, king of Assyria, inflicted a crushing defeat upon him at Raphia, and then reconquered Syria and part of Egypt.  Nothing else is known of the life and reign of Shabaka, except that on his death he was succeeded by his son(?) Shabaka II.  According to some writers he was the So of Hebrew history, and the Sabacon of the Greeks.  See Sibahe.
    Shabaka II., or Shabatuk, the successor of Shabaka I.  He marched to the assistance of Khanunu, king of Gaza, whose country was invaded by the Assyrians.  He was however defeated at another battle of Raphia, and retreated into Egypt.  The Assyrians did not recognise him as a legitimate king of Egypt, but he figures on a bas-relief at Karnak as a royal worshipper of Amen Ra.  He was the Sebichos of the Greeks. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
