Zimri-Lim
Zimrilim was king of Mari from about 1775 to 1761 BC.
He was the son or grandson of Iakhdunlim, but was forced to flee to Yamkhad when his father was assassinated by his own servants during a coup. The city was occupied by Shamshi-Adad I, the king of Assur, who put his own son Yasmah-Adad on the throne. Shortly after the death of Shamshi-Adad I, Zimrilim returned from exile and was able to oust Yasmah-Adad from power with the help of Yarimlim, the king of Yamhad.
Zimrilim ruled Mari for about thirteen years, and campaigned extensively to establish his power in the neighbouring areas along the Euphrates and the Khabur valley. He extended his palace in the city, which was possibly the largest at the time, and certainly the envy of other kings.
He was also active on a wider stage, and at one time (perhaps about 1764 BC) was allied with Hammurabi in his wars against Eshnunna.
Zimrilim's personal life is partly known through tablets preserved in the state archive of Mari. He married Shibtu, a princess of Yamkhad (Aleppo and surrounding territory), and is known to have had at least eight daughters through various wives. Several of his daughters were married to rulers of local towns, and two others are known to have become priestesses. Correspondence between the king and his daughters provides evidence that Zimrilim thought highly of women and considered them competent at making decisions.
In 1762 BC, Hammurabi conquered and sacked Mari (though it may be that the city had surrendered without a fight), despite the previous alliance. At this time Zimrilim disappears from historical view, and is presumed to have been killed.

Underground river | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Given the total darkness, except for the torches we brought in, the underground river was one of the hardest subjects to capture, particularly with my camera. It was also hard to convey the scale of the caverns but this photo gives some sense of it. You can see another of the kayaks returning from the other end of the river. One cavern, called the cathedral, was easily four times this height and with a central stalagmite twice the height of this ceiling - all too big to be illuminated by my tiny flash.
