Alluwamna was a king of the Hittites (Middle Kingdom), ca. mid-15th century BC (short chronology timeline). He might be a successor of Telipinu as his son-in-law, after the reign of Tahurwaili.
King Alluwamna of the Hittites
|Predecessor||Tahurwaili or Telipinu|
Alluwamna's reign is attested by a seal (SBo I.86) named the Tabarna seal. As a son-in-law of Telepinu (married to his first-rank daughter Harapšeki), Alluwamna would have been first in line for the throne. However, Telepinu banished him and his wife to Malitashkur (see KUB 26:77), and so it is possible that he did not come to the throne right after Telepinu's death, but rather after the reign of Tahurwaili, first cousin of Telipinu One text of Alluwamna records the granting of land to his son and likely successor Hantili II.
