Book of Mormon. In the Book of Ether, Ahah is known as a wicked ruler over the Jaredites. Ahah's father Seth was likely the heir to the throne, but spent his life in prison after his grandfather, Shiblon, was slain during his reign as king. Ahah was therefore not given the throne, but was forced to obtain it through battle. His his reign is noted as being wicked and brief, as the chaos among the Jaredites continued to grow. His son Ethem, succeeded him to the throne.
