REPUTED-MAYAN AJAW (PALENQUE) K’INICH AHKAL MO’ NAHB III ACCEDED
Born in 678 during the reign of his grandfather, Palenque’s long-lived ruler Kʼinich Janaab Pakal I, often referred to as “Pakal the Great,” because he righted the kingdom oversaw a building program that culminated in the Temple of the Inscriptions. Ahkal Moʼ Nahb III initiated a construction program that rivaled that of his predecessors. He contributed enormously to the surviving records of Palenque history. The monuments and text associated with Ahkal Moʼ Nahb III are: Temple XVIII texts, Temple XIX bench and texts, Temple XXI texts, Tablets of the Orator and Scribe, Bundle Panel and House E Painted text. K’inich Ahkal Mo’ Nahb’s reign is significant for the prominence he accords to secondary figures, implying that he relied on their support.
