Evil-Merodach, or Amal-Marduk, was the son and successor to the throne of Nebuchadnezzar II, king of Babylon (II Kings 25:27; Jeremiah 52:31, 34).

Evil-Merodach reigned a mere two years (562-560 B.C.) before being murdered by his brother-in-law, who then took the throne (Jer. 39:3, 13). The prophet Daniel probably influenced Evil-Merodach, who was then kind to the prisoner Jehoiachin, who had held in Babylon for 37 years until Evil-Merodach released him.

In other respects Evil-Merodach was a brutal and lustful king.
