Ashur-Nirari V, King of Assyria (754-745BC)

   General Notes:

114th King of Assyria

He inherited a difficult situation from his predecessor, Ashur-Dan III. The Assyrian rulership was severely limited by the influence of court dignitaries, particularly that of Shamshi-ilu, who was the commander-in-chief (turtanu). According to the eponym canon, for four years the king was compelled to stay "in the land". It was customary for the Assyrian king to campaign every year, and such an indication usually meant the kingship had been seriously weakened. In his fourth and fifth regnal years, however, he campaigned to Namri. In 746 BC a revolt broke out again, and the following year the throne was seized by Tiglath-pileser III.
