Ashur-nadin-ahhe I was the king of Assyria from 1435 BC to 1420 BC. He took power after the death of his father, Ashur-rabi I. During his reign, Assyria became a sporadic vassal of Mitanni. After a 15-year rule, he was overthrown by his brother Enlil-Nasir II.[1]

A letter survives from him congratulating Egyptian Pharaoh Thutmose II on his victories in Palestine and Syria.[2]
