King Solomon 970 and 931 B.C.E.
Solomon, King of Israel (S. X b. C.). King David married Bathsheba, after orchestrating her husband's death. Their son Solomon became king. He reigned in Israel between 970BC and 931BC and he was respected and known as a wise, fair and powerful king. Solomon raised the Israelite monarchy to the height of its prosperity, built Jerusalem Temple, a wall around the city and cultivated the Sciences and the Arts. It is told in history that there was a case in which the two women were fighting over a baby and King Solomon, in order to find out which one was the real mother, gave his sword to a soldier and ordered him to spilt the baby in two and to give one half to each of the women. The real mother begged the King not to kill the child and to give him to the other woman. This way, Solomon knew immediately which one was lying, and displayed his great wisdom and fairness.
