Zidanta II (c. 1450) was a king of the Hittites (Middle Kingdom), c. late 15th century BC from 1480 to 1490[1] (short chronology).

Life[edit]

He was probably a nephew of Hantili II and had a wife Yaya. Zidanta made peace through the means of a parity treaty with a ruler named Pilliya, his counterpart in Kizzuwatna. This was the last parity treaty ever signed by a Hittite king to a king of Kizzuwatna.[2]

He was succeeded by Huzziya II although their relation remains unclear.
