Chaldea at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Ancient region, on the Euphrates River and the Persian Gulf. It was originally the S part of Babylonia; the name Chaldea has been used (especially in the Bible) as equivalent to all of Babylonia after it was occupied by the Chaldeans, a Semitic people who had attacked the region from the 11th cent. BC. Securing the throne, they established a Chaldean (or neo-Babylonian) dynasty c.625 BC. Under Nebuchadnezzar II the empire expanded, subduing Judaea and capturing Jerusalem. It fell to Persia in 539 BC.
