Shalmaneser IV was king of Assyria (783 - 772 BC). He succeeded his father Adad-nirari III, and was succeeded by his brother Ashur-Dan III. Very little information about his reign has survived, and as a result, some early histories of Assyria (when the evidence was not as fully understood as it is today) misidentify the various king Shalmanesers.
