Overview[]

Assyria[]

The many ancient kingdoms of Assyria, long since swept into the dust of history, were at various times among the most prosperous and powerful of any on Earth. Centered in the heart of Mesopotamia (modern northern Iraq), Assyria was founded by Semitic descendants of Akkadian and Sumerian refugees following the collapse of the Akkadian Empire c. 2154 BC, whose languages and customs slowly coalesced into two distinct Mesopotamian peoples: the Assyrians in the north and Babylonians in the south. Despite a number of initial attempts at forming an independent kingdom, the Assyrians were continually thwarted by the expansion of their neighbors, particularly Babylon. Eventually, commencing with the near-legendary Tudiya, Assyrian kings succeeded in establishing a great empire - and on more than one occasion Assyria was the most powerful state in the region. However, Assyria also continued to suffer at the hands of neighboring rivals, and by the late 6th Century BC, the empire was no more.

Sammuramat[]

Sammuramat was an empress regnant of Assyria between 811 and 808 BCE. The wife of King Shamshi-Adad, she ruled the Neo-Assyrian Empire as its regent for five years or more until her son Adad-nirari III came of age. She was one of the first known women to rule an empire, thus many legends are associated to her, including that of Semiramis, the legendary wife of King Ninus who supposedly ruled Mesopotamia, Anatolia, Egypt, Lybia, Aethiopia, Iran, Caucasus, Bactria and launched invasions against India.

Dawn of Man[]

"Eternal glory be yours, O legendary empress of Assyria, the fabled Semiramis! From the rivers of the levant to the peaks of the Caucasus people grovel to your name, and marvel at your unrelenting spirit and inexorable passion. And though the feats of your rule have since faded to time, forever will your character be ingrained in the memories and legends of the resilient Assyrian people who stand to this day.

Indomitable Empress, while it is true that your people still endure, they are without nation, cast aside from their glorious past as masters of the middle east. O Sammuramat, will you resume your steadfast rule and build a new empire for them to surpass all others? Will you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Oh my, I can see myself enjoy this very much. Say, how much time can you be staying here in Assyria?"

Defeat: "This is not so bad, not so bad at all. I'm still alive, so are you; I am sure we can come to an arrangement... Don't you think?"
