    * Nebu Chadnezzar *

    Nabo Khadnassar, Nebuchadnezzar

    نبو خادناصر

    Nebu Chadnezzar was the Babylonian king from the 6th century B.C. Son of Nebu Polassar the Lydian king; He conquered Jerusalem and banished the Israelites to Babylon. Born around 630 died around 561BC, he was the second and greatest king of the Chaldean dynasty of Babylonia.He began his military career as an administrator (610 BC) and ascended the throne on his father's death, just after winning Syria from the Egyptians (605 BC). He attacked Judah, capturing Jerusalem in 597 and recapturing it in 587/586, and deporting prominent citizens (the Jewish) to Babylon. He devoted time and energy to restoring Babylon, by paving roads, rebuilding temples, and digging canals. At least in folk tradition, he is credited with building the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.The name Nebu Chadnezzar is not unique also written as Nabochadnezzar I, also confused with Nabochadnezzar II and III. Adding more to the confusion, is surfacing of different people proclaiming to be Nabochadnezzar or his relatives. (This is a work in progress and any reliable sources that can shed some light on it will be evaluated thoroughly)
