Ancient Near East
Sarduri I in Wikipedia
Sarduri I (reign - 834 BC - 828 BC), also known as Sarduris, was the king of the ancient kingdom of Urartu in Asia Minor. He was the son of Lutipri, the second monarch of Urartu. Sarduri I is most known for moving the capital of the Urartu kingdom to Tushpa (Van). This proved to be significant as Tushpa became the focal point of politics in the Near East. He was succeeded by his son, Ishpuini, who then expanded the kingdom.
The title Sarduri used was 'King of the Four Quarters'.
