Yaxchilan Ruler 5


Maya ruler of Yaxchilan; reigned 402?>.

Glyphic spelling of name: ?-BAHLAM.

Acceded: 8.18.6.5.13? 10 Ben? 11 Mol (September 27, 402?).

Ruler 5's name probably included the Bahlam element of many Yaxchilan kings, but it is impossible to say more because his name is badly eroded on one of the two retrospective king lists of Yaxchilan and missing altogether on the other.

The foregoing is based on Chronicle of the Maya Kings and Queens by Simon Martin and Nikolai Grube (2008:119).
