Can You Match the Ruler to the Kingdom They Controlled?
by Maria Trimarchi
Did you know that Enmebaragesi, King of Kish, is the earliest known ruler, said to have ruled for 900 years? While it's highly doubtful that his reign was literally 900 years, it is archaeologically verified that he was a Sumerian king who ruled around 2600 BC. Since then, there have been hundreds of countries and thousands of rulers. See how well you can match the person who ruled an area to the area that they ruled.
