 History of Egypt, by Maspero, Volume 8, Part B.
Esarhaddon attributed his success to Ishtar, the goddess of bravery and of combat; she alone had broken the weapons of the rebels, she alone had brought confusion into their lines, and had inclined the hearts of the survivors to submit.
Esarhaddon was obliged to interfere to ensure its restoration, and as their king, Shamash-ibni, was not inclined to comply with the order, Esarhaddon removed him from the throne, and substituted in his place a certain Nabushallim, son of Belesys, who showed more deference to the suzerain's wishes.
Esarhaddon was, nevertheless, obliged to put off the fulfilment of his schemes longer than he desired: complications arose on his northern frontiers, near the sources of the Tigris, which distracted his attention from the intrigues taking place on the banks of the Nile.

 Ahikar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Achiacharus is the name occurring in the book of Tobit as that of a nephew of Tobit (Tobias) and an official at the court of Esarhaddon at Nineveh.
Esarhaddon orders Ahikar be executed in response, and so Ahikar is arrested and imprisoned to await punishment.
However, Ahikar reminds the executioner that the executioner had been saved by Ahikar from a similar fate under Sennacherib, and so the executioner kills one of his (innocent) eunuchs instead, and pretends to Esarhaddon that it is the body of Ahikar.

Sennacherib, having been slain in 681, apparently by two of his sons, who are called in the Old Testament Adrammelech and Sharezer (2 Kings 19:37), Esarhaddon proceeded to Nineveh, where the rebellion which followed the death of his father collapsed, having existed for about a month and a half.
Esarhaddon, however, having been infatuated with the ancient culture of the Babylonians, adopted a conciliatory attitude toward the people.
Esarhaddon was first compelled to defend the kingdom against the inroads of the hordes from the North.

 Esarhaddon’s Reconquest of Egypt
The “town of the Brook of Egypt” in Esarhaddon’s inscription is el-Arish, the ancient Avaris.
It is worth noting tha Esarhaddon refers to these rulers and to their lands as kings and lands of Hatti, which is nearly synonymous with the designation “the other side of the Euphrates.”; Hatti is obviously a broad geographical term.
The campaigns of Esarhaddon in Egypt and Ethiopia are recorded on his steles, particularly on that found in Sendjirli; his stele at Nahr el-Kalb, close to Beirut, also describes the campaign against Egypt and the capture of Memphis.

 Twenty-Three Tales (ix.i)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
THE Assyrian King, Esarhaddon, had conquered the kingdom of King Lailie, had destroyed and burnt the towns, taken all the inhabitants captive to his own country, slaughtered the warriors, beheaded some chieftains and impaled or flayed others, and had confined King Lailie himself in a cage.
Lailie's army fought bravely, but Lailie, formerly Esarhaddon, saw the enemy swarming down from the mountains like ants, over-running the valley and overwhelming his army; and, in his chariot, he flung himself into the midst of the battle, hewing and felling the enemy.
Esarhaddon understood that he was a she-ass, the colt's mother, and this neither surprised nor grieved him, but rather gave him pleasure.

 Assyria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 681 BC, Sennacherib was murdered, most likely by one of his sons (according to 2 Kings 19:37, while praying to the god Nisroch, he was killed by two of his sons, Adramalech and Sharezer, and both of these sons subsequently fled to Armenia; repeated in Isaiah 37:38 and alluded to in 2 Chronicles 32:21).
Sennacherib was succeeded by his son Esarhaddon (Ashur-aha-iddina), who had been governor of Babylonia, and was campaigning in Urartu at the time of his father's murder, where he won a victory at Malatia (Milid).
Bel and the gods of Babylonia returned from their exile in Assur to Babylon in the first year of Šamaš-šuma-ukin, and the akitu festival could be celebrated for the first time in twenty years; ABC 1 14 vs.34-39 and ABC 1 Col.4:34-36.

 Noah's Ark pg 2 in Iran - not Turkey   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Esarhaddon forced this treaty on the Iranian princes specifically to avoid the mortal danger that beset his father.
The logic derived from the above indicates that Esarhaddon was paranoid that his son would become a victim of the same group of people that joined in the civil revolt against his father.
Since Esarhaddon’s brothers fled to the region of Ararat, subsequent to killing their father, it is reasonable to assume that they fled into the region that had joined them in the civil revolt.

In the opening chapter of his annals Esarhaddon tells how their slanderous accusations turned his father's heart against him to the point where he was obliged to leave his own country and seek refuge 'in a hiding place' - possibly Cilicia or Tabal.

With Esarhaddon generally recognised as a younger son of Sennacherib, the eldest being Ashur-nadin-shumi whom Sennacherib made Viceroy of Babylon during his Year 12 (Fourth Campaign), the chronology I am trying to develop here would be extremely tight indeed.
Esarhaddon was also ever loyal to his father, Sennacherib, and was thus especially vengeful against insolent kings - presumably those who according to the Judith narrative had originally sent back the Assyrian messengers "empty-handed and in disgrace".
Esarhaddon holds a cup in his right hand and from the left hand extends the ropes ("reins") which pass through the lips of these two conquered figures [21].
