Nabopolassar ruled as the first king of the Late Babylonian Empire from 625 to 605 B.C.

Nabopolassar fought Egypt between 610 and 605 B.C., whereupon his son Nebuchadnezzar II won the Battle of Carchemish and then took the throne upon his father's death that same year.

Nabopolassar is best known for conquering the Assyrian Empire in 609 B.C., which had already been weakened and deserted by its allies.
