Lagash II, Ur-bau (c. 2153-2141 B.C.E)

Ur-bau was a ruler of Lagash after the fall of the Akkadian empire. He was the father-in-law of the better-known Gudea (c. 2141-2122 B.C.E.). It is believed that Lagash thrived after the fall of the Akkadians because building and arts flourished at this time under the patronage of the kings.
