9780988755093: I, the Sun

From palace coups in the lost city of Hattusas to treachery in the Egyptian court of Tutankhamun, I, the Sun, the saga of the Hittite King Suppiluliumas, rings with authenticity and the passion of a world that existed fourteen hundred years before the birth of Christ. They called him Great King, Favorite of the Storm God, the Valiant. He conquered more than forty nations and brought fear and war to the very doorstep of Eighteenth Dynasty Egypt, but he could not conquer the one woman he truly loved. A breathtaking sage of the Ancient World in the 14th century BCE.

From the Inside Flap:

From the annals of the ancient Hittite king, Suppiluliumas, from the Amarna Letters of Egypt and the court records of a wealth of "lost" civilizations, comes this saga of kingship and greatness, love and death, politics and treachery in the second millennium, BCE.
     Beyond a few cursory references to the Hittites in the Bible, for thousands of years nothing has been known of this first mighty Indo-European culture. Now, based on translations of the ancient texts themselves, comes the story of Suppiluliumas, Great King, Favorite of the Storm God, King of Hatti, who by his own count fathered forty-four kings and conquered as many nations, who brought even mighty Egypt to her knees. Tutankhamen's widow sent him an urgent letter begging for a son of his to make her husband. The earliest Hebrews knew him as their protector. The entire Mediterranean world revered and feared him.     But although he conquered armies, countries, and even foreign gods, he could not conquer his love for the one woman fate denied him, the Great Queen Khinti.     With the exception of a single slave girl, every prince and general, mercenary and scribe, princess and potentate chronicled in these pages actually lived, loved and died nearly fourteen hundred years before Christ. Now they live again in I, the Sun.

From the Back Cover:

A SAGA OF KINGSHIP AND GREATNESS, LOVE AND DEATH, POLITICS AND TREACHERY -- IN THE 2ND MILLENNIUM BCE.*  "In Egypt, in Ammuru, in Ugarit, in Babylon and Byblos, my new name was being sounded out by scribes, then secretaries, then kings. In Hatti, I myself had trouble adjusting to it. I had been 'Tasmisarri' too long. But it was as 'the Sun, Suppiluliumas,' all would come to know me, and from the isle of Alashiya to Assyria men would soon be whispering my new name over their wine and over their dead and over their fear.* From palace coups in the lost city of Hattusas to treachery in the Egyptian court of Tutankhamun, I, the Sun, the saga of the Hittite King Suppiluliumas, rings with authenticity and the passion of a world that existed fourteen hundred years before the birth of Christ. They called him Great King, Favorite of the Storm God, the Valiant. He conquered more than forty nations and brought fear and war to the very doorstep of Eighteenth Dynasty Egypt, but he could not conquer the one woman he truly loved.
