Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
EVIL-MERODACH , the Amel-Marduk of the Babylonians, son and successor of Nebuchadrezzar on the throne of Babylon ( 2 Kings 25:27-30 ), promoted Jehoiachin in the 37th year of his captivity. He reigned b.c. 562 560. Berosus describes him as reigning lawlessly and without restraint, and he was put to death by his brother-in-law Neriglissar, who succeeded him.
