The most controversial ancient Sumerian text reveals the list of eight ancient kings that are also known as gods, who descended from the sky and ruled for over two hundred thousand years. According to the text, before the Great Flood, a group of 8 intelligent beings ruled over Mesopotamia for a period of 241,200 years.

The Sumerians were one of the ancient advanced civilizations that lived around 7000 years ago in Mesopotamia between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers which later became Babylonia and is now in Iraq and Syria. Many artefacts have been recovered from the ancient site of Sumerians in Iraq, but the most intriguing was the manuscript that recorded the listing of Sumer kings and their reign lengths.

The clay tablet of this unique text is 4,000-year-old and was found by German-American scholar Hermann Hilprecht at the beginning of the 20th century. Hilprecht found at least 18 such cuneiform tablets (c. 2017-1794 BCE). They were not identical but they shared the information that is believed to have been taken from a single source of Sumerian history. There are more than a dozen of copies of Sumerian King List found in Babylon, Susa, and Assyria, and the Royal Library of Nineveh from the 7th century BC.

The list composed in the Sumerian language consists of the names of numerous generation kings who ruled ancient Mesopotamia and also shared the details of their supposed length and location of kingship. Along with the list, the text also included the events of the Great flood, traditions, tales of Gilgamesh, and stories of antediluvian rulers.

The Sumerian List Before The Flood:

“After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug. In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28800 years. Alaljar ruled for 36000 years. 2 kings; they ruled for 64800 years. Then Eridug fell and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibira.

In Bad-tibira, En-men-luana ruled for 43200 years. En-men-gal-ana ruled for 28800 years. Dumuzid, the shepherd, ruled for 36000 years. 3 kings; they ruled for 108000 years. Then Bad-tibira fell and the kingship was taken to Larag.

In Larag, En-sipad-zid-ana ruled for 28800 years. 1 king; he ruled for 28800 years. Then Larag fell and the kingship was taken to Zimbir. In Zimbir, En-men-dur-ana became king; he ruled for 21000 years. 1 king; he ruled for 21000 years. Then Zimbir fell and the kingship was taken to Shuruppag. In Shuruppag, Ubara-Tutu became king; he ruled for 18600 years. 1 king; he ruled for 18600 years. In total 5 cities 8 kings, they ruled for 241200 years. Then the flood swept over.”

Anunna (from Sumerian meaning “pantheon”; Akk: Anunnaki, meaning “princely offspring” or “offspring of Anu”) refers to the pantheon of deities whom the Sumerians venerated as early as c. 5500 BCE. In the Sumerian textual corpus, the highest gods in the Mesopotamian pantheon were AN (Sum: ) and his nine princely heirs.

How could the 8 kings rule the Earth for 241,200 years? There was a great discussion on the long tenure of the early kings. The list mentioned some mythical and legendary figures such as Etana, Lugal-banda, and Gilgamesh who reigned for an implausible period of time. Some believed that they were indeed gods who had a longer life span than earthly beings. There is also a list of the rules and their kingship after the flood.

For many years people believed that the history of 8 Sumerian kings and their implausible kingship, the Great Flood, and their replacement with another set of kings after the flood were just Sumerians’ interpretation of mythological stories. At the same time, some researchers and authors dismissed this theory and suggested that the list cannot be a myth. They started recognizing some of the kings mentioned in the list.

Interestingly, some scholars found striking similarities between the Sumerian King List and the Book of Genesis. For example, likewise, the list discussed the 8 kings that ruled for generations, before the flood there is also mentioned about eight generations that existed between Adam and Noah before the great destruction. And then after the flood, the longevity decreased.

The Sumerian List mystery still baffles historians as it shares some perplexing facts that relate to the actual events. What if the list tells us the correct information and the heavenly gods really lived and ruled for such a long period of time? What if they possessed the technology to increase life expectancy and became immortal?

Two Mountains 100 Times Higher Than Mt. Everest Found Inside Earth Trigger Hollow Earth Theory

Since the 1970s, the discovery of two giant structures inside the Earth has baffled scientists. They are located on opposite sides of our planet and their size may be compared to continents.

Each of these structures is almost 100 times bigger than Mount Everest and is located at the core of the Earth, at a depth of 2900 km. Seismic studies show that the discovered formations have a different composition than the rest of the Earth’s mantle.

The structure, known as an ultralow-velocity zone (ULVZ), is located on the boundary between Earth’s super-heated, molten core and the solid mantle, lying directly underneath the volcanic Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia in the South Pacific, according to a study published in the journal Science.

How & Whys


  1. If that’s the case, they are still among us no joke, u think it just stops no they play big rolls and where noticed For there rolls and where probably hidden as best as could be among everyday life

  2. Hello Iam really enjoy reading all these stories about the Sumerians and how long they lived for,I bet a lot of it is very true and that the catholic churches well the Vatican has hidden all the evidence in their secret library just so they can keep to their stories about jesus and God all in there time line,but it’s all crap there bible shit,we are finding more evidence all over the world now a day’s that supports everything about humanity being much older on earth more than what the historians are saying,so now I realise that humanity has technology way back thousands of years ago and it’s all been lost through time or that the Vatican has been collecting the evidence to hide it from us the modern world, we just need to keep all researches going on to find the truth and the internet is the key to all us private researcher’s,I think people like Zackiry Sichuan and others in the search for the evidence and truth, I know now that the government’s aren’t really in charge anymore and there are people’s in the background pushing their buttons and the churches all over the world can’t be trusted.

  3. It’s interesting to note that if you divide these numbers by 365 they become much more normal numbers, sometimes i wonder if there has been a translation error somehow over the years? Maybe lifespans were much longer before due to genetics that may have been lost?

    For example, 36,000 ‘years’ divided by 365 ends up being about 98.6 years. Maybe they had a different kind of calendar and translators aren’t understanding it correctly? The sum total of 241,200 ‘years’ can be divided and ends as a total of a mere 660.8 and could totally constitute a normal length of the dynasty/dynasties.
