Shar-Kali-Sharri (Akk. = "King of all Kings") was a king of the Akkadian Empire.
After Shar-Kali-Sharri’s reign, there may have been a short period of crisis or struggle; the king list states:
- "Then who was king? Who was not the king? Igigi, Imi, Nanum, Ilulu: four of them ruled for only 3 years."
After this, king Dudu ascended, who reigned for 21 years.
