Nabopolassar (Akkadian:Nabû-apal-usur) (c.658 - 605 BC) was the first king of the Neo-Babylonian Empire.[1] He ruled over Babylon for 20 years (625 - 605 BC).

Rise to Power

He rose in revolt against the Assyrian Empire (which had ruled Babylon for the previous 200 years) in 627 BC, after the last significant Assyrian king, Ashurbanipal(ASH-ur-BA-Nee-paal), died in 626 BC. In 625 BC, the Assyrian Empire's grasp on Babylon was now almost nonexistent, so he became its first king that year.

Destruction of Assyria

The weakened Assyrians could not resist his power and that of the Medes, who combined to sack the Assyrian capital of Nineveh in 612 BC, at the Battle of Nineveh. Nabopolassar was left in control of Nineveh and destroyed the remnants of the Assyrian Empire in 605 BC.

Other Campaigns

Nabopolassar waged war against Egypt from 610 BC until his death.

In 610 BC, Nabopolassar took the Assyrian city of Harran, where Assyrian forces had retreated after the fall of Nineveh. Later that year, his son Nebuchadrezzar succeeded him to the throne of Babylonia and won the Battle of Carchemish, fought against Pharaoh Necho of Egypt, shortly before Nabopolassar died.

Later years

For the last five years of his very productive life, Nebopolassar was leading the Babylonian army in a successful war against Egypt. Once victory was claimed, Nebopolassar, now in his fifties, gave up the throne in favor of his son, Nebuchadnezzer II.

Death

Within months of his abdication in 605 BC, Nebopolassar died of natural causes. He was about 53 years old.

[edit] Military campaignsNabopolassar revolted against the Assyrian Empire (which had ruled Babylon for the previous 200 years) after the death of the last effective Assyrian king, Ashurbanipal, some time between 631 BC and 627 BC. He then took on the title of King of Babylonia.

Assyria, weakened by internal strife and ineffectual rule following the death of Ashurbanipal, was unable to resist the alliance of the Chaldeans and Medes, who combined to sack the Assyrian capital of Nineveh in 612 BC. Following a prolonged siege at the Battle of Nineveh, Nabopolassar took control of Nineveh. In 609 BC, Nabopolassar took the Assyrian city of Harran, where Assyrian forces had retreated after the fall of Nineveh.

From 610 BC until his death, Nabopolassar also waged war against Egypt, which was allied with Assyria. In 605 BC, his son Nebuchadnezzar fought Pharaoh Necho II of Egypt and the remnants of the Assyrian army at the Battle of Carchemish, shortly before Nabopolassar died.

[edit] Later yearsOnce his forces had defeated the Assyrians and their Egyptian allies, Nabopolassar gave up the throne in favour of his son, Nebuchadnezzar II. Within months of his abdication in 605 BC, Nabopolassar died of natural causes at about 53 years of age.
