King Assurbanipal of Assyria. (668 BCE to 627 BCE.)

Assurbanipal was king of Assyria and led her to her greatest glory. An ambitious man, he lacked the genius of his father, Esar-Haddon, but compensated for it with his administrative and leadership abilities. He was a great patron of the arts and brought Assyria to the zenith of its splendor and the last great king of the Neo- Assyrian Empire. Reminents of his great library exist today. Restorers' Comment: An elaborate bead fringe and gold lace trim was added to the original robe.
