The magi or wise men of the story of Jesus' birth are not called kings. They were probably astronomers that watch the heavens for portentous events.
The message delivered by the herald when King Nebuchadnezzar was king of Chaldea said that when people around the world heard music, they should get on the ground and worship the golden statue the king had built.

King Herod sent the Magi to Bethlehem to find the baby they were looking for. He wanted them to come back and tell him where the baby was. He told them he wanted to know so he could worship him also, but he really planned to have him killed. The magi were warned in a dream, and so did not return to King Herod, but left another way.
Matthew's Gospel states that the magi came from the east, but does not say whether they were sent by a king. John Shelby Spong (Born of a Woman: A bishop rethinks the birth of Jesus) says that among the people he knows in New Testament circles, the universal assumption is that the magi were not actual people. Matthew was clearly writing Christian midrash. No one sent the magi.
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon are from the city of Babylon built by King Nebuchadnezzar 2 to impress his Persian wife.

According to Matthew's Gospel, the magi told King Herod they were seeking the baby who would be king. This set the scene for the flight to Egypt and the Slaughter of the Innocents, allowing Matthew to draw parallels between Jesus and Moses. As the magi were actually priests of the Persian religion, Zoroastrianism, it also allowed the author to depict the priests of this great religion as wanting to worship Jesus.

Chaldea was low on natural resources and they needed to trade for many of their day-to-day items. Some of the things that they traded in Chaldea were Grain, Oils, and textiles, and return, they got timber, wine, and precious metals and stones. It was a primitive economy.
