The research aims, as appears from its title, to study an important and prominent aspect of the leadership personality of the kings of Assyria. The nature of its features and dimensions are embodied in the contents of the speeches of the kings of the Sargonic dynasty and their 
immortal exploits in managing the relationships of their vast kingdom and addressing its various issues with a high level of wisdom and acumen that aims to look with insight and contemplation. In the depths of matters and their details, extrapolating events, studying them, extracting experiences from them, and judging them. Every statement or discourse that called for an honor, an exhortation, a reminder, a censure, or a prohibition against an ugly act represented one of the aspects of wisdom they had in cultivating souls, achieving justice, acting upon it, and arranging matters toward their correctness. Proceeding from this vision, the study came to investigate the manifestations of wisdom in the sayings of these kings and their correspondence, and to know its dimensions by standing at some of their behaviors and knowing the truth of their policies in managing their kingdom.
