A New King Tiglath Pileser III Seizes the Throne of Assyria. A usurper came to the throne of Assyria in 745 B.C. and ushered in a new era filled with famous rulers. The first monarch to rise during this time was Tiglath-pileser III, also known as Pul in the Bible, and Pulu by the Babylonians.
In all probability Pul, or Pulu, was a usurper, who as king of Assyria assumed the name of one of his predecessors, Tiglath-pileser I, and reigned as Tiglath-pileser III. This king of Assyria, who reigned, as we learn from his annals, from 745 B.C. to 727 B.C., was one of the greatest of Assyrian monarchs. See ASSYRIA.
