Background

Nebuchadnezzar II was the longest-reigning and most powerful monarch of the Neo-Babylonian empire, ruling from 605-562 BCE.

Nebuchadnezzar was a brilliant general who spent much of his reign conquering nearby kingdoms, fighting the Egyptian empire, and putting down many rebellions in vassal states. His most famous military acts includes two of his sieges of Jerusalem in 597 and 587 BCE, and his destruction of the Temple of Solomon after the second siege.

His most significant legacy in modern times, however, is not as a conqueror, but rather as a builder. Most of his time and energy spent outside of the battlefield was dedicated to building up his capital city of Babylon. He rebuilt temples, paved roads, dug canals, and built many new fortifications, including a moat surrounding the city walls.
Nebuchadnezzar is also said to have built the fabled Hanging Gardens of Babylon to remind his queen of her homeland, Media.
