How Did Hammurabi Influence The Babylonian Empire

Satisfactory Essays
Hammurabi also known as Khammurabi and Ammurapi, assumed the throne of his father, Sin-Muballit, becoming the sixth king of the Amorite First Dyansty of Babylon, and reigned from 1792 to 1750 BCE. After taking the throne from his father, Hammurabi expanded his kingdom outwards, and continued to concquer all of ancient Mesopotamia, as the Babylonian Empire held minor cities before this time, such as Kish, Sippar and Borsippa. However, Hammurabi moved forward after coming into power, and pressed into the boarders of neighbouring empire through Militia means, and careful alliances that allowed him to reign over, and control all of anicent Mesopotamia before 1750 BCE.
