The Kingdom of the Hittites


Oxford University Press

Although he was a vigorous military campaigner before he occupied the throne as king of the Hittites, Hattusili emphasized diplomacy and conciliation during his own reign. Hattusili sought to ensure the security of his kingdom's subject territories by establishing formal diplomatic relations with foreign kings whose territories bordered his own. This chapter discusses the reign of Hattusili III as king of the Hittites, Hatti's international relations, treaty drawn up between Hattusili's son and successor Tudhaliya IV and a man called Kurunta, Hattusili's decision to designate Tudhaliya as his successor to the throne, Hattusili's treaty with Assyria and Egypt, relations between Hatti and Egypt following the treaty, the role of Hattusili's wife Puduhepa in Hatti's international affairs, Hattusili's military campaigns in Anatolia, and Hattusili's legacy as ruler of the Hittite kingdom.
