Transcript of Lugalzaggisi
He died in 2285 B.C.E. He used to be the king of Uruk. He ruled for 25 years. Lugalzaggisi said in his inscription that Enlil had given him “all the lands between the upper and lower seas.” Lugalzaggisi had united the middle east into one great empire from the Persian Gulf to Mediterranean. Lugalzaggisi was considered the
only king of the third
dynasty or Uruk. Sacred king of the southern Mesopotamian city of Umma, who first conquered the major cities of Lagash and Kish, then overcame the Sumerian cities of Ur and Uruk. After uniting all of Sumer, he extended his empire to the Mediterranean coast but, after a period of 25 years, he lost his empire to the rising dynasty of Sargon, the powerful Semitic ruler of Akkad. Semite revolted, and captured Lugalzaggisi
