Hammurabi, the sixth ruler of Babylon's First Dynasty, oversaw major construction projects in Babylon, transforming it from a small town into a great city. To expand his empire, Hammurabi embarked on a series of conquests. He first raided a number of towns and cities before defeating the major powers to Babylon's north, east, and south. By the end of his reign, he had conquered all of southern Mesopotamia and a portion of Assyria. Hammurabi was a ruthless ruler.
