Yamhad (also written Yamkhad or Jamhad) was an ancient Amorite kingdom centered at Halabmarker (modern Aleppomarker, Syriamarker). A substantial Hurrian population also settled in the kingdom, and the Hurrian culture influenced the area. The kingdom was powerful during the Middle Bronze Age, ca. 1800-1600 BC. Its biggest rival was Qatnamarker further south. Yamhad was finally destroyed by the Hittites in the sixteenth century BC.
