Gilgamesh Facts and Images

Gilgamesh
Gilgamesh was probably a real king who ruled over the ancient Sumerian city-state of Uruk sometime between 2700 B.C. and 2500 B.C. As the years passed, he became a figure of legend. People described Gilgamesh as one-third man and two-thirds god. Stories of Gilgamesh and his adventures were passed on as oral tradition for centuries before being written down in about 2500 B.C. Today people still read about this hero.
