Abstract: Historical documents from ancient Mesopotamia, mainly including royal inscriptions, year names, chronicles and literary compositions, provide a useful source of information concerning historical events of various natures. However, these texts were more or less influenced by the ideological background of their authors who belonged to the circle of royal officials or priests. The texts were not meant as impartial accounts of historical events. Their main purpose was determined by the attitude of their author towards the respective ruler of the time. He was then described either in a positive sense as an ideal ruler or, on the contrary, negative aspects of his personality were highlighted. Mesopotamian historiographic texts contain valuable information on historical events, but they must be analyzed critically and with regard to their ideological role.
