Enlil-kudurri-usur

Enlil-kudurri-usur was King of Assyria. Depending on the length of reign one gives to his successor, Ninurta-apal-Ekur, this would have been either from 1187 to 1183 BC or from 1197 to 1193 BC. The former dates are more common in recent studies. Enlil-kudurri-usur was the son of Tukulti-Ninurta I, and succeeded his nephew, Ashur-nirari III. At the end of his reign, the throne was usurped by Ninurta-apal-Ekur, a descendant of Adad-nirari I.
