Current version looks like a copy of http://www.hyperhistory.net/apwh/bios/b1sammuramat.htm...could someone check? raylu 00:25, 18 October 2005 (UTC)

It seems that this article treat stuff that is better treated in the article Semiramis. This article should be about the historical queen of Assyria, and the other about the legendaric Semiramis. Summer Song 12:20, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

I agree; the historical Samurramat should be kept separated from the mythical Semiramis, as it is very far from certain that their is any sort of connection among the two.--Aldux 17:41, 12 May 2006 (UTC)
I agree that the two should be kept separate, and I am removing the merge suggestion. It was made when the two articles overlapped, which they no longer do. Bejnar 23:29, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Thing is do we even know anything about this queen other then what's already mentioned? If so I'd like to know, unfortunately I doubt we know much, her being placed in the Dark Ages of Mesopotamia, whether or not she did anything that might have helped inspired the Greek Legend we really don't know. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.92.234.42 (talk) 18:01, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Shammuramat's background/heritage[edit]

I've just written Ivar Lissner's book about civilization. According to that book, Shammuramat was a Median princess who married to King of Babylon. Are there another sources to support it? Medea Mēdeia (talk) 21:10, 9 December 2013 (UTC)
