King Nebuchadnezzar

The Question:

I am searching for "King Nebedkenezer", but I'm uncertain of the spelling. When I search your site everything about kings appeared except what I was looking for. Anything you might have will help.

The Answer:

We believe the man you're looking for is Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylonia from about 604 to 562 B.C.E. Also called "Nebuchadrezzar" or "Nebuchodonosor", he is often remembered for his construction of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The biblical book of Daniel gives a rather unflattering account of him.
