61. The true king

Its time for the Sargon saga, also known as the 710s BC. Sargon takes the Assyrian throne illegally and while he is trying to convince the Assyrian that he is indeed the son of Tiglath-pileser III, there are massive rebellions against Assyrian rule in the east, south and west. In the north, Urartu plots revenge!

To combat all this Sargon takes his name; Sarru-Ukin, Sargon, The True King and goes to battle against EVERYONE.

Hear Sargon tell his own story here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAQK_Sgxkpk
