Not to be confused with the Sumerian ruler Elulu.

Ilulu or Elulu, according to the Sumerian king list, was one of four rivals vying to be king of the Akkadian Empire, during a three-year period after the death of Shar-kali-sharri.

While there is virtually no surviving evidence dating from this short timespan, thought to correspond with the first Gutian inroads into Akkadian territory, it has been suggested that this Ilulu is to be identified as the same as the Gutian king Elulmesh, also known from the kinglist.[1][2]
