    Ashur-nars-pal II was the cruellest of all the Assyrian kings.

    Ashur-nars-pal introduced cavalry in warfare and became the creator of the new Assyrian empire. Cruel methods of subjugation put the conquered peoples into a state of fear. Impalement, scourging and mass-executions were used.

    A new residence with a gigantic palace was established at Calah, built by deportees.
