The Great King of Akkad was a Terran ruler, who fought the Emperor's forces, during the Unification Wars.[1]

His elite Udug Hul were the terrors of the Upper Asiatic Basin and managed to resist the advance of the Emperor's armies. This ended in 668.M30, when the Emperor led the first of the Legio Astartes against the Great King and the Udug Hul at Samerkend. The battle ended after 10 hours, with the Emperor victorious and the Great King of Akkad's head a trophy, that hung from the belt of the Grandmaster Hector Thrane.[1]
