  • Czech Wikipedia auto-translation: "Enlil-nasir I (Akkadian «[God] Enlil - protector») was an Assyrian king in the period roughly 1497–1483 BC. He was the son of the previous ruler Puzur-Ashshur III. ¶ Around 1485 BC, the Assyrian army under his command clashed with the troops of the Mitanni Empire, led by King Shaushtatar, who was trying to expand Mitanni territory. The Assyrian troops suffered a series of defeats and Shaushtatar even managed to capture the capital of Assyria, Ashur. He looted it and took away rich booty, including the temple gate, chained with gold and silver. Enlil-nasir I ruled for 14 years, and after his death, his son, Nur-ili, took the Assyrian throne." – Cites: "Historie starověkého Východu" - "История Древнего Востока.

The Assyrian King List says he ruled for 13 years.[1] According to the Synchronic History (a Babylonian text from the 8th century BC that refers to the relations between Babylon and Assyria during the Kassite domination) he would have been a contemporary of King Ulamburiax who reigned around 1500 BC.[2] He restored the towers of a temple in Assur, which one is not known, as the name appears cursed in the text. This temple had been founded by Ixme-Dagan II.[3] He was succeeded by his son Nurili, according to the Assyrian King List." — Citation 1: «The Assyrian king list». Livius.org.
