NAME OF THE DAY

Baltzar NORWEGIAN / SWEDISH

This name derives from the Akkadian “Bēl-šarra-uṣur” (Hebrew: Bêlsha'tstsar; Arabic: Blsẖạṣr), meaning “god, the Lord protect the king, bel protect the king”. Belshazzar was a 6th century BC prince of Babylon, the son of Nabonidus and the last king of Babylon according to the Book of Daniel in the Hebrew Bible. In Daniel 5 and 8, Belshazzar is the King of Babylon before the advent of the Medes and Persians. The Midrash literature enters into the details of Belshazzar's death. Thus the later tradition states that Cyrus and Darius were employed as doorkeepers of the royal palace. Belshazzar's Feast is a painting by Rembrandt van Rijn created around 1635.
