From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    Merodach's man, the son and successor of Nebuchadnezzar, king of
    Babylon (2 Kings 25:27; Jer. 52:31, 34). He seems to have
    reigned but two years (B.C. 562-560). Influenced probably by
    Daniel, he showed kindness to Jehoiachin, who had been a
    prisoner in Babylon for thirty-seven years. He released him, and
    "spoke kindly to him." He was murdered by
    Nergal-sharezer=Neriglissar, his brother-in-law, who succeeded
    him (Jer. 39:3, 13).
