The first Kassite king of Babylonia of whom we have knowledge was Gandash.
Some of the Kassite monarchs, however, showed a preference for Nippur.
Kassite supremacy lasted for over 570 years, and during that period Babylonia was known as Karduniash.
It grew independent during the latter period of the Kassite dynasty, and its kings formed compacts with the Kassites.
