In 705 BC Sennacherib was crowned King of Assyria. He ruled over the largest empire the world had ever seen, and the first of its kind. Its borders stretched from Egypt to Iran, from modern day Sudan to central Turkey, encompassing a wide variety of differing peoples under its overlordship. Since 911 BC, the Iron Age Neo-Assyrian Empire, had held control over the Middle East through the use of its professional standing army, the first of its kind, and through the use of intense cruelties handed out to anyone who dared rebel against their overlordship. Sennacherib, son of Sargon II, was descended from a long line of powerful Kings, and was likely groomed for leadership from an early age. He was a god-king, seen as the instrument of the principal Assyrian deity, Ashur. During his lifetime, Sennacherib carried out numerous campaigns all over the empire, notably warring against and putting down rebellions in Babylon, Elam, Egypt and many smaller kingdoms such as Judah, notable for its descriptions in the Old Testament of the Bible, where the terrible cruelties of the Assyrians are described in great detail. Sennacherib, thinking himself to be the instrument of Ashur, destined to subjugate the entire world under his heel, didn’t shy away from these harsh punishments meted out, which are illustrated in intricate carvings upon his own palaces which include vivid depictions of victims being flayed alive en masse, blinded, impaled on spikes and all manner of other cruelties. The assyrians were a people made for war, and saw the best way to maintain their empire to be through fear, and also through masterful population displacement. Policies which would be adopted by many empires which would come later, most notably the Romans. When an enemy people were finally subjugated, they would be uprooted en masse and moved to another area of the empire where they could still be useful but were much less likely to rebel. Talk of the intense cruelties dished out spread quickly, and operated as an early form of propaganda, used to dissuade others from rebelling. Sennacherib was also a masterful statesman and builder, making his capital at Nineveh a truly magnificent city of palaces..
