Ninurta-kudurrī-uṣur I (987-985 BC)

A man by the name of Ninurta-kudurrī-uṣur succeeded Eulmaš-šākin-šumi [] as king of Babylon. He ruled over Babylonia for three years (987-985 BC) according to one source (King List A []) and for only two years according to another source (Dynastic Chronicle). Cuneiform texts do not indicate whether or not Ninurta-kudurrī-uṣur was related to his predecessor; he seems to have been the brother of his successor Širikti-Šuqamuna [].
