The dating and sequence of the
Hittite kings is compiled from fragmentary records, supplemented by the recent find in Hattusa of a cache of more than 3500 seal impressions giving names and titles and genealogy of Hittite kings. All dates given here are approximate, relying on synchronisms with known chronologies for neighbouring countries and Egypt.
All reign lengths are approximate. The list uses the
middle chronology, the most generally accepted chronology of the Ancient Near East and the chronology that accords best with Hittite evidence.
