The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were actually in Nineveh…

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were actually in Nineveh and not Babylon, and they were built by Sennacherib, not by Nebuchadnezzar.  It’s interesting how much of history is skewed, since it is written typically by usurpers and people who have hanged heroes and taken credit for what they did not invent, stealing the fame of those who actually deserved the credit and were worthy, but were snubbed out of jealousy.

The Hanging Gardens were a marvel of the world and the way in which the water was carried uphill to water the great fruit tree groves was genius.  Even the aqueducts Sennacherib built were a marvel, centuries before the Romans came.  Senacherib actually invented the Archimedes screw, centuries before Archimedes was born!  When reading history, one must always consider that certain people have been dispossessed of the credit they deserve and one must dig deeper to find the truth.  I hope one day I can invent something as amazing to enchant the world as Senacherib’s Hanging Gardens.
