The history of this city dates back to the Iron Age I (1200-1160) BC, evidenced by the discovery of a tomb near the hill that dates back to that era.
In the twelfth century BC, Ma'adaba was a Moabite city until the Amorites seized and burned it.
Then the city was ruled in the ninth century BC by a king named Misha, who made Thiban his capital, and expelled the invaders and rebuilt the cities.
