  Assyria Information - TextSheet.com
Assyria, a country named after its original capital city, Asshur on the Tigris, was originally a colony of Babylonia, and was ruled by viceroys from that kingdom.
In 1120 BC, Tiglath-Pileser I, the greatest of the Assyrian kings, "crossed the Euphrates, defeated the kings of the Hittites, captured the city of Carchemish, and advanced as far as the shores of the Mediterranean." He may be regarded as the founder of the first Assyrian empire.
Assur-bani-pal or Ashurbanipal (Ashurbanapli), the son of Esarhaddon, became king, and in Ezra 4:10 is referred to as Asnapper or Osnappar.

 Assyria - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Assyria proper was located in a mountainous region, extending along the Tigris as far as the high Gordiaean or Carduchian mountain range of Armenia, sometimes called the "Mountains of Ashur".
Ashurnasirpal's son, Shalmaneser III (858-823 BC), fought against Urartu, and in the reign of Ahab, king of Israel, he marched an army against an alliance of the Syrian states (a rare occasion in near-eastern history of an alliance between the Isareli State and the Aramaic Kingdom), whose allied army he encountered at Karkar (854).
In 738 BC, in the reign of Menahem, king of Israel, Tiglath-Pileser III occupied Philistia and invaded Israel, imposing on it a heavy tribute (2 Kings 15:19).

The dates for the kings given below as reigning between 1420 BC and 1179 BC are particularly problematic, as the dating differs depending on which of the Assyrian King Lists is given precedence.
The dating below for the kings of this period is based on Assyrian Kings Lists B and C, which give only three years to Ninurta-apal-Ekur, and the same to Ashur-nadin-apli.
This version is followed by many sources, which thus give Ashur-uballit I as succeeding in 1366 BC and Shalmaneser I in 1275 BC.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Assyria
In treating of Assyria it is extremely difficult not to speak at the same time of its sister, or rather mother country, Babylonia, as the peoples of these two countries, the Semitic Babylonians and Assyrians, are both ethnographically and linguistically the same race, with identical religion, language, literature, and civilization.
Tiglath-pileser was the first Assyrian king to come into contact with the Kingdom of Juda, and also the first Assyrian monarch to begin on a large scale the system of transplanting peoples from one country to another, with the object of breaking down their national spirit, unity, and independence.
And in the ninth year of Osee, the king of the Assyrians took Samaria, and carried Israel away to Assyria; and he placed them in Hala and Habor by the river of Gozan, in the cities of the Medes.

II Kings 19:2 "And he sent Eliakim, which [was] over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests, covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz." Eliakim and Sheba are 2 of the 3 men Hezekiah sent to speak to the 3 men sent by the Assyrian king.
II Kings 19:21 "This [is] the word that the LORD hath spoken concerning him; The virgin the daughter of Zion hath despised thee, [and] laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee." The daughter of Zion, here, is, probably, speaking of Jerusalem.

It was in the sixth year of Nabonidus (549 BC) that Cyrus, the Achaemenid Persian "king of Anshan" in Elam, revolted against his suzerain Astyages, "king of the Manda" or Medes, at Ecbatana.
Three years later Cyrus had become king of all Persia, and was engaged in a campaign in the north of Mesopotamia.
Cyrus now claimed to be the legitimate successor of the ancient Babylonian kings and the avenger of Bel-Marduk, who was assumed to be wrathful at the impiety of Nabonidus in removing the images of the local gods from their ancestral shrines, to his capital Babylon.

This was not an unknown practice among Assyrian kings, and neither was it unheard of for a king to claim victories that occurred in the reigns of his predecessors.
So it is possible that Assyria was divided into two kingdoms, with two kings (one in Babel and one in Nineveh), from the days of Tiglathpileser III and Shalmaneser V. It is possible that Sargon II shared the throne with Shalmaneser, and that Sargon's son, Sannacherib, may have been a coregent with Shalmaneser as well.
Or possibly Sannacherib was king in Assyria (as crown prince) and Sargon was king in Babylon during the last years of his reign.

Sargon is the Hebrew rendering (Isaiah 20:1) of Assyrian Sharru-kin, a throne name meaning "the king is legitimate." The name was undoubtedly chosen in reminiscence of two former kings of Assyria, particularly in commemoration of Sargon of Akkad (flourished 2300 BC).
Seizing the tactical situation king Sargon himself mounted his battle chariot, and along with his personal elite bodyguard and household cavalry drove headlong into the centre of the ambush on the wing of the opposing forces.
King Rusa took his remaining forces and fled into the mountains where, according to Sargon, he died of grief.
