The Hittites are not going to exceed the heights of king Mursili for a long, long time, if indeed they ever do. Today we are going to look at a dark century of decline, as the Kaskans and Hurrians press on the ever shrinking borders, and kings begin to off each other right and left in the capitol. We will look most extensively at Hantili and Telipinu, since they have the most surviving details for us to get at, but all in all it is a pretty poorly documented period. Still, there are some fun tales of murder and divine vengeance here as well. Apologies for the poor audio quality, I am stuck recording this in some sub-optimal conditions. It should get back to normal soon.
