The Hammurabi Code was created by Hammurabi himself. He ruled from 1792-1750 B.C. His empire was called Babylon. Babylon was along the Euphrates River in the south east corner of Mesopotamia. He ruled there for a long time. The Hammurabi code was created to protect the weak. The code was also significantly important to history because set the first written laws in human history. It was also predicted to be the first language ever made and able to be written down.
My personal opinion on the Hammurabi code is that it is unjust. Why I think that is because Hammurabi said his code was meant to protect the weak, but in reality all of the laws were just harsh and unnecessary.
