SEALAND DYNASTIES
   There were two:
(1) The First Sealand Dynasty was established during the lifetime of Samsu-iluna (reigned 1749–1712) in the Old Babylonian periodto the detriment of Babylonia’s sea trade; little is known about this dynasty, which was founded by Iluma-ilum.
(2) The Second Sealand Dynasty lasted from 1026 to 1006 B.C. and was founded by Simbar-Shipak (reigned 1026–1010). He controlled much the same area as the Second Dynasty of Isin and was recognized as a legitimate king in Babylon. After his reign, rulers followed each other in quick succession due to palace intrigues.
