Anunnaki is believed to be a group of deities in several ancient Mesopotamian cultures such as the Babylonian, Sumerian, Assyrian, and Akkadian.
The name Anunnaki is a derivative of the names heaven “Anu”, and earth “Ki”. However, some groups translate them as “princely offspring” or “Those of Royal Blood”.
The Sumerian legends and the ancient texts use the word Annunaki to refer to a group of gods who came from heaven.
They were considered as the main gods of the Sumerian pantheon. The Sumerians worshipped these gods long before the great pantheon of ancient Greece and before the ancient Egyptian gods.
The Anunnaki descended from An, the supreme being that reigned over all the Sumerian gods.
The Babylonian myths of creation say there were 300 Anunnaki who kept the heavens and 300 others who guarded the underworld.
These deities were so important that they were also mentioned in the Epic of Gilgamesh.
The development of Sumerian civilization occurred in the Persian Gulf while growing to strength over time.
The “Plain of the Land of Shinar” is the territory that was renamed to Babylon after 2000 B.C.
These people lived in the Middle East on the territory we know as Iran and Iraq today.
