(reigned C. 1365–1330 B.C.)
   King of Assyria. During his lifetime, Assyria’s political situation changed significantly, due to the defeat of the neighboring kingdom of Mitanni by the Hittites. This allowed Ashur-uballit to extend his territory to the east and to grow in importance. He also initiated a close relationship with Babylonia by giving his daughter in marriage to the Babylonian king. See also KURIGALZU II.
