The Neo-Assyrian king Sennacherib built a residence for his son Aššur-ilī-muballissu in the city of Assur. That house was constructed near the city wall in the southeastern part of city (city plan quadrants l8/l9), near the bank of the Tigris River. This building, which is known from numerous inscribed stone blocks, is often referred to as the “(Crown) Prince's Palace” or “Prinzenpalast.”

One inscription mentioning the construction of this royal residence (RIAo Sennacherib 181) reads as follows: “I, Sennacherib, king of Assyria, the one who fashioned image(s) of (the god) Aššur and the great gods, built this house for my second son Aššur-ilī-muballissu, who (is) in the service of (the god) Aššur, and I laid its foundation(s) with limestone, stone from the mountains.”
