From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

K'inich K'an Joy Chitam II (November 5, 644-ca. 711), also (formerly) known as Kan Xul II or K'an Hok' Chitam II, was a ruler (k'uhul ajaw, "divine king") of the Classic-era Maya civilization polity based at Palenque. He began his reign in 702 at the age of 57, succeeding upon the death of his elder brother K'inich Kan B'alam II. Their father was the renowned K'inich Janaab' Pakal I (aka "Pacal the Great"), who had ruled for 68 years.

K'inich K'an Joy Chitam apparently reigned for about nine years. He was captured by the Tonina in 711 and was possibly executed by their leader, K'inich B'aaknal Chaak. His successor was probably Xoc, who was succeeded in late 721 by K'inich Ahkal Mo' Naab' III.
