The Gutian kings came to some power in Mesopotamia in ca. the 22nd century BC (short chronology) by destabilising Akkad at the end of the reign of Shar-kali-sharri. They were invaders from a people known as Guti or Gutii, who inhabited the Zagros Mountains. The last Gutian king was Tirigan , who was preceded by 21 kings (each reigning for only a few years), reigning roughly a total of one century (estimates vary between 80 and 120 years, with 91 years often quoted as probable). The dynasty was succeeded by the 3rd dynasty of Ur.
The gutian kings were in order :
Inkishuc, Zarl-agab, Shulme, Silulumesh, Inimabakesh, Igecaush, Yarl-agab, Ibate, Yarl-angab, Kurum, Apil-kin, La-erabum, Irarum, Ibranum, Hablum, Puzur-Suen, Yarlaganda and Tirigan.
