Assur danin Pal (8th Century BC) was the son of the king of Assyria, Shalmaneser III. He rebelled against his father in an attempt to seize the throne. However, Shalmaneser III's younger son Shamshi-Ramman II (also known as Shamshi-Adad V) crushed his rebellion.

Assur danin Pal had sought the alliance of the Babylonian King Marduk-balatsuiqbi, and tried to overthrow his brother. But Shamshi-Ramman II undertook four campaigns and defeated the maurading army of the Babylonians.

Eventually, Assur danin Pal had to give up his rebellion. Assur danin Pal's later years are shrouded in mystery.
