Labashi-Marduk, (Akkadian translation, "May I not come to shame, O Marduk") [1]was king of Babylon (556 BC), and son of Neriglissar. Lâbâši-Marduk succeeded his father when still only a boy, after the latter's four-year reign. Most likely due to his very young age, he was deemed unfit to rule, and was murdered in a conspiracy only nine months after his inauguration[2] He is traditionally listed as a king of the Chaldean Dynasty, being, probably, the son of Neriglissar and his wife, the daughter of Nebuchadnezzar. Nabonidus was chosen next as the new king.
