The Hittites lived in central Anatolia. At its height their empire extended from the Ionian coast to parts of Syria. They strove to support a string of client states as buffers between the powerful Mitanni to the east and the Egyptians to the south. The Hittites and Egyptians fought to extend their influence over these vassal states. The most famous battle between these two Biblical superpowers was at Kadesh in 1274 BC. The mixed nature of the Hittite forces reflects this system of client kingdoms whose lords were obliged to provide contingents towards the Hittite army. Amongst the vassal states of the Hittites was Wilusa in the far North West – identified with Ilium and the city of Troy.
