Yasmah-Adad was the son of the Amorite king Shamshi-Adad I, put on throne of Marimarker by his father after a successful military attack. After Shamshi-Adad's death he managed to rule for only a short time before being ousted from power by Zimrilim. His brother, Ishme-Dagan, ruled at the same time in the city of Ekallatum. The correspondence between the father and sons was found in the city of Marimarker and provides an interesting and at times humorous look into the dynamics of this family.
