Ancient Near East
Shattuara I in Wikipedia
Shattuara, also spelled Šattuara, was a king of the Hurrian kingdom of Hanigalbat in the thirteenth century BC.
Shattuara was a vassal of the Assyrian king Adad-nirari I (1295-1263 BC). In an inscription made by Adad-nirari he is told to have rebelled against his lord, but was captured and his oath of loyalty renewed.
A later king also called Shattuara is suggested to have ruled Hanigalbat during the reign of the Assyrian king Shalmaneser I (1263-1233 BC). In an Assyrian inscription king Shattuara of Hanigalbat is told to have waged war against Shalmaneser I. However it seems more likely this event is a recapitulation of the revolt against Adad-nirari I, either by Shattuara or his son Wasashatta.
