922 – Solomon

922 BC King Solomon – King Solomon reigned from 961- 922 B.C. During his reign, he consolidated the Kingdom of his father, David. Solomon instituted new methods of government and entered into a series of alliances to ensure that his Kingdom would remain at peace.

Upon the death of Solomon, his son Rehoboam came to the throne. He was not accepted by many of the tribes of Israel, and they split off naming Jerboam King of Israel. Rehoboam remained King of Judah, the area to the south.

Interesting in two ways; the seeming prominence of Solomon in Sgt. Pepper as well as the significance placed on the split of Israel in the lineage of Jesus.
