Aitakama

(fl. 1350–1320 BC)
   Ruler of Kadesh. Son of Shutatarra, ruler of Kadesh. Loyal of Egypt, his father was defeated and deposed by the Hittite king Suppiluliuma I, and Aitakama was installed in Kadesh as a Hittite vassal. He joined Aziruof Amurruin attacks on Egyptian territory, yet he wrote an Amarna letter declaring his loyalty to Egypt. Upon the death of his Hittite overlord, he broke this allegiance but was assassinated by a son who returned to the Hittite fold.
