Ahkal Mo' Naab' II (3 September 523 – 23 July 570) was a ruler of the Maya city of Palenque, reigning from 4 May 565 until his death.[1]

It is possible his name means "Turtle Macaw Lake".[2]

Reign[edit]

Enthroned eighty-five days after the death of the long-reigning K'an Joy Chitam I, Ahkal Mo' Nahb himself ruled for just five years.[3]

It seems that his brother was K'an B'alam I.
