Sarduri Ii in Wikipedia
Sarduri II (ruled 764-735 BCE) was the King of Urartu (modern-day Turkey and Armenia). The Urartian Kingdom was at its peak during his reign. He succeeded his father Argishti I to the throne.
Sardur II was so confident in his power that he erected a massive wall at Tushpa (Van) with the following inscription:
"the magnificent king, the mighty king, king of the universe, king of the land of Nairi, a king having none equal to him, a shepherd to be wondered at, fearing no battle, a king who humbled those who would not submit to his authority."
