AHKAL MO' NAHB' I


The fourth ruler of Palenque was born on July 6, 465 (9.1.10.0.0) - coincidentally a major period ending, at the exact halfway point of the twenty-years between 9.1.0.0.0 and 9.2.0.0.0. He acceded 36 years later. Ahkal Mo' Nahb' I is the first Palenque ruler for whom we have a date of death as well as birth and accession. He was just over 59 when he died. Ahkal Mo' Nahb' I and the two other Palenque rulers who bore his name have been variously referred to as Akul Anab, Chaacal, Cauac-Uinal, and Chaac. And the name could change again as the hieroglyphics experts and linguists make further advances.
