En-anna-tum I was king of Lagash, circa 2400 BC.

Enannatum I (Sumerian: ?, EN.AN.NA-tum2), son of Akurgal, succeeded his brother E-anna-tum as Ensi (ruler, king) of Lagash.[2] During his rule, Umma once more asserted independence under its ensi Ur-Lumma, who attacked Lagash unsuccessfully. After several battles, En-an-na-túm I finally defeated Ur-Lumma.[2] Ur-Lumma was replaced by a priest-king, Illi, who also attacked Lagash.

Enannatum had a son named Meannesi, who is known for dedicating a statue for the life of his father and mother.[3][4] He has two other sons, Lummatur, and Entemena, the latter succeeding him to the throne.[2] His wife was named Ashumen.[2]
