The Akkadian king Naram-Suen [2236 - 2200 BC] launched an  incursion into the Armenian Highland in order to fight the powerful kingdom of ARMANI or ARATTA under the leadership of the Armani-Armenian King Madakina. In the inscriptions that were made both in Akkad and in southern portions of Armenia, he gave the details of the military campaigns against the Kingdom of ARMANI around the area of Lake Van. It is interesting to point out here that, the inscriptions tell us that later a portion of the the warrior highlanders of Aratta would later descent onto lower Mesopotamia -- defeat Naram-Suen -- and secure their own rule over the Near East.
