Kingdom of Israel

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the Books of Kings, after King Solomon died, his kingdom known as Israel split into two kingdoms one in the North and one in the South. The one in the South was called Judah and the one in the North was called the Kingdom of Israel. It was later conquered and destroyed by the Assyrian emperor Shalmaneser who exiled its people who were known ever since then as the Lost Tribes of Israel.
