This king has ruled over his people for nearly half a century, ascending to the throne after his father’s passing. But life was not easy for the royal family, to a point where Ashur had to go against his blood, his elder brother who rebelled against his rule. Even though Ashur was a merciless and brutal leader, he always made time for the finer things in life. He loved the arts, and written word. Thanks to his efforts, much of the history of his time reached the current day anthropologists. He is responsible for preserving thousands of artworks and writings for future generations.
