Naram-Sin

 

(Naramsin), king of Akkad from about 2236 to 2200 B.C. Grandson of Sargon.

Naram-Sin consolidated the various royal temple economic activities. He expanded his despotic power and proclaimed himself a god. His stele commemorating a campaign against the Lullubi, a group of western Iranian tribes, is one of the major works of Akkadian art (preserved in the Louvre). The invasion of Akkad by the Guti began during his reign.
