Nebuchadnezzar probably intended to follow up his victories at Carchemish and Hamath by continuing to march south into Palestine, but he was prevented from doing so by the death of his father, Nabopolassar, which required him to return to Babylon in August 605 BCE, and accept the crown as Nebuchadnezzar II (605–562 BCE), the second king of the Neo-Babylonian Empire.
