Ashur-dan II was the first king of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. He was born in circa 935 BC, and died in 912 BC.


He reigned from 935 BC until his death in 912 BC.

Ashur-dan II concentrated on rebuilding Assyria within its natural borders, from Tur Abdin to the foothills beyond Arbel, he built government offices in all provinces, and as an economic boost, provided ploughs throughout the land, which yielded record grain production.

He was followed by four able kings, who used the foundation which he had laid to make Assyria the major world power of its time.
