He came to power as a disaffected former provincial governor leading a rebellion against Nabû-nādin-zēri, the son and successor of Nabû-Nasir.[2]He was deposed and replaced by the Chaldean chief, Nabû-mukin-zēri, of the Bīt-Amukani tribe, within weeks establishing a trend as later pretenders from the traditional Babylonian population were likewise to be displaced quickly by Chaldeans, Marduk-zakir-šumi II by Marduk-apla-iddina II in 703 BC and Nergal-ušezib by Mušezib-Marduk in 692 BC.[3]Inscriptions[edit]Jump up ^ Kinglist A, BM 33332, iv 5.Jump up ^ Chronicle on the Reigns from Nabû-Nasir to Šamaš-šuma-ukin (ABC 1), i 16–18.References[edit]Jump up ^ A.
