             DAVIDIC DYNASTY

PART 1: David's Family, his parents, his seven older brothers and two half-sisters & their families

       The DAVIDIC DYNASTY is called the "STEM OF JESSE" (Isa. 11:1) and the "ROOT OF JESSE" (Isa. 11:10) in scripture. David was the youngest of the eight sons (1 Sam. 17:12) of his father Jesse, a Judahite sheikh, and his wife, Abalaya [or, Habalit], grand-daughter of Ibzan "of Bethlehem", Israel’s 10th Judge. The seven older brothers of David were: (a) Eliab [the father of Abihail, wife of [her cousin] Jerimoth, one of King David’s sons], (b) Abinadab, (c) Shimeah [the father of three sons: i.e., [Jo]Nadab, Joel, and [Jo]Nathan], (d) Nethaneel, (e) Raddai, (f) Ozem (Asam), and (g) Elihu. David, beside seven older full-brothers, had two half-sisters, who were (a) Abigail, wife of Ithra (Jether), an Arabic sheikh [mother of Amasa], and (b) Zeruiah (Cerouya) [who, of her 1st husband, Suri “the Naphalite“, was the mother of three sons, i.e., (a) Abishai [the father of Absessalom, the father of Ahimaaz, husband of King Solomon's daughter, Basemath, of his Egyptian wife, the parents of Ana, the wife of King Abijah of Judah, of whom later], (b) Joab, and (c) Asahel [father of Zebadiah]; and, was the step-mother, by her 2nd husband, Nebat “the Ephraimite”, to his illegitimate son, King Jeroboam of Israel, begotten of his mistress, Sariya “The Harlot”].


PART 2: Kings of Israel & Judah: Davidic Dynasty, the royal genealogy, first kingdom era

1. DAVID, reigned at Hebron as Judah’s 1st king for 7 years, 1010-1003BC, then, reigned at Jerusalem as Israel’s 3rd king [or, 2nd, not counting Eshbaal, King Saul‘s son] for 33 years, 1003-970BC (2 Sam 5:5). David had 10 wives. He =1 Michal, daughter of King Saul of Israel, his predecessor; =2 Ahinoam “the Jezreelite“; =3 Abigail, the widow of Nabal “the Carmelite“; =4 Maachah, daughter of King Talmai of Geshur; =5 Haggith; =6 Abital; =7 Eglah; =8 name unknown; =9 name unknown; =10 Bathsheba, daughter of Ammiel (Eliam) “the Gilonite“, and, widow of Uriah “the Hittite“:

issue of 1st wife: none

issue of 2nd wife: (a) Amnon, was murdered by his half-bro, Absalom, for raping his full-sister

issue of 3rd wife: (b) Chileab [aka Daniel], died young without issue

issue of 4th wife: (c) Absalom, the crown-prince; the name of Absalom's wife is not given, but he begot three sons [who all died in infancy] and a daughter, Tamar, the wife of Uriel, Sheikh of Gibeah, and mother of Michaiah (Maachah), the 2nd wife of [her cousin] King Rehoboam; & (d) Tamar (daughter), was Absalom's full-sister; after her rape by a half-brother was married to a foreign prince

issue of 5th wife: (e) Adonijah, heir-expectant after Absalom’s death

issue of 6th wife: (f) Shephatiah (Chefatia), ancestor of a secondary descent-line

issue of 7th wife: (g) Ithream (Yitream)

issue of 8th wife: 6 sons, who were: (h) Ibhar, (i) Elishua (Elishama), (j) Elpalet (Eliphelet), (k) Eliadah (Beeliada), (l) Abishai, & (m) Nogah

issue of 9th wife: 5 sons, who were: (n) Japhia, (o) Nepheg, (p) Jerimoth [father of Mahalath, 1st wife of [her cousin] King Rehoboam], (q) Asahel, & (r) Joab

issue of 10th wife: 5 sons, who were: (s) un-named infant son, who died a few days after birth, (t) Nathan, the ancestor of a major descent-line (below), (u) Shammuah (Shimea), (v) Shobab, & (w) Jedidiah, who changed his name to Solomon, on his accession, was the favorite son of David's favorite wife


note: The doctrine of the “divine right of kings” was introduced by the covenant God made with David, which was the origin of the “Davidic Dynasty Tradition”, that is, “royal Zionist theology”, which tied the dynasty to the messianic prophecies of earlier times, and was the basis of the messianism of later times, which made the Davidic Dynasty a part of Israel’s religion, Judaism, and later of Christianity also. The essence of the “Davidic Dynasty Tradition” is: (a) that God chose Jerusalem as the place of His presence [which replaced Shiloh as the cultic centre of Jehovah-worship]; (b) that God would make for David a “house”, that is, an everlasting dynasty of kings, whose destiny was worldwide rule with a divine mandate, sitting upon God’s very throne (1 Chr 29:33), whose kingdom was to be established forever; and (c) the special intermediary role of the Davidic king between God and the people, whereby, the monarchy would be the channel through which God would bless the people. The covenant made David’s House a “divine dynasty” [so to speak]. This new status brought with it the inviolability of the person of the king, called “The Lord’s Anointed”, and gave rise to a court rhetoric in which the king was called “the Son of God” (Ps 2:7) as the visible symbol of the invisible God, occupying God’s throne (Ps 2:6), representing God to the people; while at the same-time the king was called “the Son of Man” (Dan 7:13-14) as the corporate embodiment of the people representing them to God. The king was answerable to God alone, and was responsible to Him to care for the people, as the politique father [“parens patriae”] of a large family, his people. Too, the king was likened to a shepherd duty-bound to watch over his flock and provide for all its needs, and his people in return would attend upon the king as his servants and give him worship. The basic duties of the king were to feed his people  [meal-tickets]: to heal his people, i.e., “the royal touch” [health service]; to defend his people [the military to defend from without, and the police to defend within], and, above all to lead his people, as a shepherd leads his flock. 

Not all of the Hebrew people accepted this idea of an everlasting union of their nation, religion, and David’s House; and later ten of the twelve Hebrew tribes rebelled against David’s House in the time of his grandson [Rehoboam, son of Solomon] that caused the disruption of the Hebrew kingdom.


2. SOLOMON, reigned 40 years, 970-930BC (1 Ki 11:42). He had a harem of 1000 secondary-wives; his primary wives, or queens, were: =1 Abishag of Shunem, the un-named Shulamite woman of his youth, his first love, whom he wrote about in “Canticles“; =2 Nicaule [Tashere] of Egypt, the daughter [or sister] of Psusennes II [or Psusennes III] [note: the myth that she was Shishak‘s daughter is chronologically impossible]; =3 [prob. mistress] Bilqis, Queen of Arabia; =4 name unknown, daughter of Hamath, King of Lebanon; =5 name unknown, daughter of King Rezon [I] of Syria; =6 [mistress] Makeda, Queen of Sheba [Ethiopia]; =7 Nabah (Naamah) “the Ammonite”, daughter of King Hanun of Jordan:

issue of the Shulamite woman: none

issue of his Egyptian queen: two daughters, who were: (a) Basemath, wife of Ahimaaz, “the Naphalite“, the mother of Ana, wife of [her cousin] King Abijah (below), & (b) Taphath, wife of Ben-Abinadab of Dor

issue of the Arabian queen: (c) [prob. his step-son] Kahtan (Qahtan; Cahtan), called 1st King of Arabia [note: he is given an Arabic ancestry descended from Ishmael in Arabic literature] - that he was Solomon's son may have been a later tradition reflective upon Solomon glorious reign which was remembered in ancient Arabic literature 

issue of the "Queen of Sheba": (d) Menelik [Ibn El-Hakim], called 1st King of Ethiopia

issue of his Jordanese queen: (e) Rehoboam, who succeeded as King of Judah alone


note: The Bible tells us that God gave Solomon His promise that the title to the throne would pass through his descendants (1 Ki 9:5; 1 Chr 22:8-10; 2 Chr 7:18).


3. REHOBOAM, reigned 17 Years, 930-913BC (1 Ki 14:21). He had eighteen secondary-wives and a harem of sixty concubines, however, only had two primary wives, that is, queens, whom he married in turn after the demise of the other: =1 Mahalath [his cousin], daughter of King David’s son Jerimoth and his wife, Abihail, grand-daughter [not “daughter”] of Eliab [an older brother of King David, i.e., one of Jesse’s eight sons]; =2 Michaiah (Maachah) [his cousin’s daughter] [note: in 1 Ki 15:2 she is said to be the daughter of Absalom, the late crown-prince, his uncle, but in 2 Chr 13:2 she is said to be the daughter of Uriel of Gibeah, which discrepancy is resolved by the supposition that she was the daughter of Tamar, Absalom’s daughter, and her husband, Uriel of Gibeah, which makes her the “grand-daughter” of Absalom and not actually his “daughter”], and had issue:

issue of his 1st wife: 5 sons, who were: (a) Jeush, (b) Zizah, (c) Shemariah (Semariah), ancestor of a secondary-line of the royal house, (d) Attai, & (e) Zaham

issue of his 2nd wife: (f) Abijah (Abijam), who succeeded his father in prejudice of his older half-brothers

4. ABIJAH, reigned 3 years, 913-910 BC (1 Ki 15:2). He had 14 secondary-wives, 22 sons & 16 daughters. His primary wife was Ana [cousin], daughter of Ahimaaz “the Naphalite“, and his wife, Basemath, King Solomon’s daughter. [note: Ahimaaz, who was Solomon’s purveyor, was the son of Absessalom, the son of Abishai, the son of King David’s half-sister, Zeruiah, and her first husband, Suri “the Naphalite”.] It is through her, Ana, that the bloodline of the Egyptian Pharaohs enters into the veins of the Jewish royal house. The name of King Abijah’s wife, Ana, is not given in the “Masoretic Text”, but is given in the “Septuagint Text” [denoted as “LXX”] (3 Ki 15:10). [note: I & II “Samuel” in the “MT” is I & II “Kings” in the “LXX”; and III & IV “Kings” in the “LXX” is I & II “Kings” in the “MT”.] In one version of the “LXX”, Ana, is called the “daughter” of Absessalom, but we know from comparison of scripture that this is an instance of the term of a relationship used in a loose sense and that she was actually his “grand-daughter”. Abijah, of his primary wife, Ana, had issue: (a) Asa, the crown-prince

5. ASA, reigned 41 years, 910-869BC (1 Ki 15:10). His grandmother, Michaiah (Maachah), is called his “mother” in the “Masoretic Text” (1 Ki 15:9-10), but here the term “mother” is used in a loose sense. This has caused some confusion since the “MT” does not give his mother’s name, however, the “LXX” corrects this by giving his mother’s name. The confusion was created by the fact that his wife Ana died before her husband’s succession. His grandmother, Michaiah (Maachah), the queen-mother of his father’s reign, was still alive, and, in the absence of Asa’s mother, Ana, filled a vacuum in the royal court. It appears that the Judahite monarchy had a “madonna and child” cult in its ideology represented by the office of “queen-mother”. There was no such office of “queen-mother” in the Hebrew monarchy of the “northern kingdom“; which is the reason that the mothers of the “northern kings” are seldom mentioned but in passing, whereas, the mothers of the “southern kings” are nearly always given by name. He = Azuba, daughter of Shilhi, one of the grandsons of Jeroboam, the rebel Hebrew king, of his wife, Karamat, daughter of King Shishak of Egypt, who fled south to Judah during the massacre of King Jeroboam’s House by the usurper Baasha where she found refuge. Another descent-line from the Egyptian Pharaohs may be trace through Azuba [via, her paternal grandmother, Karamat] to the Jewish Royal House. He, of his wife, Azuba, had issue: (a) Jehoshaphat, the crown prince

6. JEHOSHAPHAT, reigned 869-848, regent from 872. He reigned 25 years (1 Ki 15:23; 2 Chr 16:2), including the 3 years he was regent during his father’s illness (1 Ki 22:42). The name of his wife is unrecorded in scripture. He begot (a) Jehoram (Joram), the crown-prince, (b) Azariah, (c) Zechariah, (d) Shaphatiah, (e) Michael, (f) Jehiel, & (g) Ahaziah

7. JEHORAM, reigned 848-841, associate-ruler from 853. He reigned for 8 years, not counting the years of his associate-rule with his father (2 Ki 8:17; 2 Chr 21:5). He was made associate-ruler at the time for concerns over the up-coming war with Syria. The fact that his mother’s name does not appear in scripture is unusual for Judahite annalists, especially if he were crown-prince, which suggests that there is a story the annalists wished to “cover-up”. He, as crown-prince, married the Hebrew princess Athalia, the daughter of King Ahab of Israel, and his wife Jezebel of Tyre, a Phoenician princess. His marriage was arranged between his father, the King of Judah, and her father, the King of Israel, perhaps in hope of the reunion of all the Hebrew tribes under one crown. He came down with a terrible disease (2 Chr 21:18,19), and his son, Ahaziah, the crown-prince, was regent the last year of his life. He, by Athalia, his queen, had issue: (a) Jehoahaz [who changed his name to Ahaziah on his accession], the crown-prince; (b) Jehosheba (daughter), the wife of Jehoiada I, High-Priest, and mother of Jehoadda, the wife of [her cousin] King Jehoash, of whom later; (c) other children by secondary-wives, whom were taken captive (2 Chr 21:16,17) by the Arabs when they stormed and plundered Jerusalem, and afterwards were all slain (2 Chr 22:1). 

8. AHAZIAH, reigned 841, regent from 842. He reigned for 1 year (2 Ki 8:26), not counting the year he was regent during his father's illness. In 2 Ki 8:26 it says he was age 22 when he began to reign, but in 2 Chr 22:2 his age is given as 42. The “22” is undoubtedly correct, as 2 Chr 21:20 we see that his father was age 40 on his demise, which would have made him younger than his son. He, by his wife, Zibiah of Beersheba, had several sons, the only surviving of whom was (a) Jehoash (Joash), of whom later

9. ATHALIA, usurper-queen, widow of King Jehoram and mother of King Ahaziah (above), sole ruler for 7 years, 841-835 (2 Ki 11:3; 2 Chr 22:12)

10. JEHOASH, reigned 40 years, 835-796 (2 Ki 12:1; 2 Chr 24:1), survivor of the massacre of the royal house, married Jehoadda, an Aaronic Levite [his cousin], daughter of the High-Priest Jehoiada and [his aunt] Jehosheba, a princess “of the blood [royal]”, who rescued him as an infant, and had issue: (a) Amaziah, the future king, & (b) Amateza

11. AMAZIAH, reigned 796-767, regent from 801; captured, released & restored 792. He reigned as regent during his father’s suffering [who had been severely wounded in battle] (2 Chr 24:25), and, after his father’s murder, reigned as king 29 years (2 Ki 14:2; 2 Chr 25:1). In 2 Ki 14:2 it says he was age 25 when he began to reign, but this must be an error, for it would mean that he was only 12 when his son [Uzziah] was born. He, of his wife, Jecolia[h], had issue: (a) Uzziah (Azariah), crown-prince, and twice king

12. UZZIAH, reigned 767-740, reign dated from 792, his first accession. He reigned 52 years (2 Ki 15:2; 2 Chr 26:3). He had a double accession: the first in 792 when his father was taken prisoner following his defeat in battle; and, the second in 767 on his father’s demise. In 2 Ki 14:17 it says he began to reign in the 15th year of King Jeroboam II of Israel [from 767 date]; while 2 Ki 15:1 says he began to reign in the 27th year of King Jeroboam of Israel [from 792 date]. This means that 2 Ki 14:21 and 2 Ki 15:2 are chronologically out of place and should be inserted between 2 Chr 26:22 and 2 Chr 26:23. These references compared to 2 Ki 15:8 reveals that his 38th year is synchronist to the 14th anniversary of his father’s demise. He married Jerusha, daughter of High-Priest Zadok II, and had issue: (a) Jotham, the crown-prince; (b) Tabael (Isa 7:6), the father of Elkanah, rival claimant versus King Ahaz (below), his cousin.

13. JOTHAM, reigned 740-735, regent from 750BC. He reigned 16 years (2 Ki 15:33), which includes the years he was prince-regent during his father’s retirement (2 Ki 15:5; 2 Chr 26:1). He was regent for 11 years (2 Ki 15:32). He, by his wife, Ahio, the Hebrew princess, the daughter of Azrikam, the Benjaminite sheikh of King Saul’s House (1 Chr 9:44), begot Ahaz, the crown-prince [which name was common in the Saulite family-clan], which, indeed, was a strategic marriage in a feasible plan to re-unite the Hebrew tribes. He, during his regency, made an alliance with King Jeroboam II of Israel, who gave him his grand-daughter, Abija[h], the daughter of his son, Zechariah, the crown-prince and future king of the “northern kingdom”, in marriage to his [Jotham’s] son, Ahaz, the crown-prince, in a long-range scheme to reunite the Hebrew Nation. The murder of King Zechariah of Israel the year before Jotham, the prince-regent, became king, and, the overthrow of King Jehu’s House, which was followed by a series of usurpers in the “northern kingdom”, dashed all hope for the re-unification of the Hebrew tribes. He was the father of (a) Ahaz, the crown-prince; & (b) Yaba (daughter), wife of Tiglath-pileser III [aka Pulu], King of Assyria 745-727BC

14. AHAZ, reigned 735-726, regent from 743. He reigned 16 years, including the years of his regency (2 Ki 16:2). 2 Ki 16:2 & 2 Chr 28:1 give his age at 20 on his accession, but this must be in error or else he was 11 when his son [Hezekiah] was born [compare 2 Ki 16:2; 18:2]. He married Abijah, daughter and heiress of King Zechariah of Israel [House of Jehu], and had issue: (a) un-named infant son, his eldest, was sacrifice in Moloch-worship (2 Ki 16:3); (b) Maaseiah, the crown-prince, who was captured during war-time by Judah’s neighbors, and was murdered along with other hostages (2 Chr 28:7); (c) Hezekiah, the future king

15. HEZEKIAH, reigned 29 years, 726-697 (2 Ki 18:2; 2 Chr 29:1). In the 6th year of his reign (721BC) the “northern kingdom” was conquered by Assyria (2 Ki 18:10), whose king deported the country’s population, the so-called “ten lost tribes”, and resettled them elsewhere (2 Ki 17:6). He married Hephzibah, and begot (a) Bilhah (daughter), who married a foreign-prince; (b) Manasseh, the crown-prince, & (c) Amariah

16. MANASSEH, reigned 55 years, 697-642BC (2 Ki 21:1; 2 Chr 33:1). He was a minor on his succession, and his mother, Queen Hephzibah, governed the kingdom until he came of age. Thus, it is not possible that he could have served as regent during any part of his father’s reign as some writers have claimed in order to work out their faulty chronologies! He married Meshullemeth, and begot (a) Amon, the crown-prince

17. AMON, reigned 2 years, 642-640BC (2 Ki 21:19; 2 Chr 33:21). He married Jedidah, daughter of Adaiah, a priest, of the Aaronic-line [the house of the high-priest], and had issue: (a) Josiah, the crown prince; & (b) Kareah, father of Johanan, claimant 587/6BC [identified with “Ion, son of Kari” in ancient Irish annals], ancestor of a dynasty of rival claimants in “a far off place” or “in the isles of the seas”. Here, according to British-Israelism, “the isles of the seas” in “a far off place” refers to the British Isles. Here, too, they say applies the prophecy of the “three overturns” of Ezek 21:27; that is, from: (1) Judah to Ireland; (2) Ireland to Scotland; & (3) from Scotland to England.

18. JOSIAH, reigned 31 years, 640-609BC (2 Ki 22:1; 2 Chr 34:1). He =1 Zebudah (Zebidah), daughter of Pedaiah of Rumah, and, =2 Hamutal, daughter of Jeremias of Libnah

issue of 1st wife:

(a) Johanan, the crown-prince, father of a daughter, Tamar, who, according to the judicial-ruling made by Moses (Num 28:8) & its conditional clause (Num 36:8), was technically the dynasty's heiress. Her 1st husband was Prince Neri[ah], representative of a major Davidic descent-line; and her 2nd husband was King [Je]Coniah, of whom later; & (b) Eliakim, who changed his name to Jehoiakim, on his accession

issue of 2nd wife:

(c) Shallum, who changed his name to Jehoahaz, on his accession; & (d) Mattaniah, who changed his name to Zedekiah, on his accession

19. JEHOAHAZ, reigned three months Year 609 (2 Ki 23:31; 2 Chr 36:2). His mother, Queen Hamutal, engineered his succession in prejudice of her late husband’s issue of his late first wife, on the news of the death of her husband, King Josiah, and the crown-prince, Johanan, in the Battle of Megiddo. Jehoahaz was deposed, and he and his mother, Queen Hamutal, were carried hostage to Egypt by Pharaoh Necho II, and disappear from history, without any known descendants.

20. JEHOIAKIM, reigned 11 years, 609-598 (2 Ki 23:36; 2 Chr 36:5). He was set on the throne by Pharaoh Necho, and Judah became an Egyptian vassal-state. He married Nehushta, daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem, and begot (a) Jeconiah (Jechonias), called "Coniah" for short, who took the name Jehoiakin (Jehoiachin), on his accession

21. JEHOIAKIN, called "The Captive" ("Assir"), also referred to as [Je]Coniah in scripture, reigned three months Year 598/597 BC (2 Ki 24:8; 2 Chr 36:9). 2 Ki 24:8 says he was 18 on his accession, but 2 Chr 36:9 says he was age 8. The accepted explanation of this discrepancy is that in 2 Chr 36:9 the “yodh” [= 10] was dropped out by a copyist due to a corruption in the text, for he is known to have been married with at least one child, Zedekiah, at the time of his succession (1 Chr 3:16). Too, some cuneiform tablets discovered at Babylon by archaeologists mention [Je]Coniah by name as well as his sons [“step-sons”], indicating that his sons [“step-sons”] were already born at the time he was taken captive, which points to his marriage to a widow with children. He married Tamar, his cousin, her second marriage, the daughter of the late crown-prince, Johanan, his uncle, and begot (a) Zedekiah, the crown-prince 


note: the early death of the crown-prince was the fulfillment of "Coniah's Curse", placed on King [Je]Coniah's off-spring by Jeremiah "The Prophet" (Jer 22:30); after which King [Je]Coniah adopted his step-sons, the sons of his wife, Tamar, by a previous marriage [since they too were of the "royal seed"] to Neri[ah], her first husband, who was also a Davidic prince. Here, Tamar is a pivotal figure who transfers the title of the throne from the main-line [the Solomonic line], of which she was [technically] the heiress, to a secondary-line of the royal house, the Nathanite-line


sons of Queen Tamar by Prince Neriah [her 1st husband], & adoptive sons of King [Je]Coniah [her 2nd husband]: (b) Shealtiel (Salathiel), his acknowledged heir [after the death of the crown-prince], father of Zerubabel (below); (c) Malchiram; (d) Pedaiah (Phadaia), father of Esthra (daughter), 3rd wife of Zerubabel [her cousin]; (e) Shenazzur (Sin-ab-Usur), had issue; (f) Jekamiah (Yekamia);(g) Hoshama (Hochama); (h) Nedabiah, father of Shemphat (S[u]mbat), the ancestor of the Bagratids (Bagratuni) of the Caucasus States


note: the ancestry of Tamar’s first husband, Prince Neri[ah], in The "Lucan Text" (3:27-31) reads by generation:

(01) David, King of Israel, who, by Bathsheba, begot

(02) Nathan, ancestor of the Nathanite-line of the royal house, the father of

(03) Mattatha[n], the father of

(04) Menon (Menna), the father of

(05) Melea, the father of

(06) Eliakim, the father of

(07) Jonam, the father of

(08) Joseph, the father of

(09) Jude, the father of

(10) Simeon, the father of

(11) Levi, the father of

(12) Mattatha[n], the father of

(13) Joram, the father of

(14) Eliezer, the father of

(15) Jose (Joshua), the father of

(16) Er, the father of

(17) Elmodam, the father of

(18) Cosam, the father of

(19) Addi, the father of

(20) Melchi, the father of

(21) Neri[ah], "1st" husband of Tamar, daughter of the late crown-prince, Johanan [King Josiah's eldest son], the father of (22) Shealtiel (Salathiel) (above), father of (23) Zerubabel (below)


The Babylonians besieged Jerusalem’s walls in 598/597BC. At some point King Jehoiakin, that is, [Je]Coniah, decided to surrender, probably upon the early death of the crown-prince. He packed his bags, and gathered together the royal family, including the queen-mother, Nehushta, and, in an entourage of ministers and servants rode out to meet the Babylonian Emperor Nebuchadnezzar, who took him and his entourage captive to Babylon, where they lived in comfortable confinement for 36 years. Nebuchadnezzar occupied Jerusalem, and sat the ex-king’s uncle, Zedekiah, on the throne, and Judah became a Babylonian vassal-state.

22. ZEDEKIAH, reigned 11 years, 598/7-587/6BC (2 Ki 24:18; 2 Chr 36:11). He was the last King of Judah. He, and Judah's neighbor-states rebelled against Babylonian vassalage, to which Nebuchadnezzar responded by re-conquering the Middle East. It was at this time that Jerusalem and the First Temple were destroyed by the Babylonians, 587/586BC, and the mass deportation of the Jews to Babylonia took place, called “The Babylonian Captivity”. He, by an un-named wife, begot six sons & three daughters, including the crown-prince Malchijah (Melchiah) (Jer 38:6); his brother, Yerahmeel (Jer 36:26); another brother not mentioned in scripture was Mulek, who, according to mythology, escaped the massacre of the royal family; one daughter, Maacha, came down with an illness and died in Egypt during their sojourn there; another of the king's daughters [name not given] married the ruler of the House of Saragossa, then Spain's reigning dynasty; too, there is their famous sister, Tamar-Tephi, who married a foreign-prince, identified with an Irish prince, and later was considered the mother of Irish, then Scottish, then English kings. Legend says that the Irish prince Eochaid, whose father is called the "King of Ireland" in British lore, was visiting Jerusalem at the time of its conquest by the Babylonians and had become betrothed to the Jewish princess Tamar-Tephi [or, "Tea", who may have been another sister], one of King Zedekiah’s daughters. It was Eochaid who invited Tamar-Tephi and her party of Jewish refugees [under the leadership of Prince Johanan, son of Kareah, brother of King Josiah, above] to Ireland to where they apparently came, about 582BC.

The execution of the sons of the ex-king Zedekiah by the Babylonian Emperor Nebuchadnezzar II, and the carrying-away of King Zedekiah in chains to Babylon where he languished in prison until his death nine years later, caused several claimants of the royal house to come forward presenting their claims; among whom were: (a) Johanan, son of Kareah, brother of King Josiah; (b) Gedaliah, the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, the son of Azaliah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Elkanah [rival claimant versus King Ahaz, his cousin], the son of Tabael, the brother of King Jotham, and, (c) Ishmael, the son of Nathaniah, the son of Elishama, the son of Achbor, the son of Michaiah, the son of Azrikam, who descended in the ninth degree from Prince Shamariah (Semariah), one of the three sons of King Rehoboam (above) by his first wife. The Jewish prince Gedaliah was appointed “Governor” [not “King”] of Judea by Nebuchadnezzar II, which now became a Babylonian province. He could be called the first Palestinian "Nasi" [= "Prince"].

Meanwhile, in Babylon, the ex-king [Je]Coniah was still alive, and it was the hope of the Jewish remnant in Judah who escaped the mass deportation of the country’s population into the “Babylonian Captivity” that he would in time be restored to the Judahite throne.


PART 3: the dynasty's post-exilic royal heirs: ancient Babylonian Exilarchs ["Resh Galuta"] & Palestinian Princes/Patriarchs ["Nesi'im"], representing separate branches of the Davidic Dynasty, were rivals for the heirship of the old Jewish Davidic royal house, i.e., the "princes" of the "diaspora", or the lords of the world’s Jews


regnal-list [exilarchs, 1st dynasty, from c. 560BC to AD130]

1. Jehoiakin or [Je]Coniah "The Captive", who was still regarded by the “Jewish Exiles” as their king, is numbered the "first" Exilarch, circa 562BC. On the release and advancement of the Jewish ex-king [Je]Coniah at the imperial Babylonian court, the Jewish ex-king established a residence in the city’s Jewish quarter. He did not return to Trans-Jordan [Palestine] probably because most of the Jewish population had already been re-settled in Babylonia; too, the old capital city of Jerusalem laid in ruins, and his old kingdom, now a Babylonian province, was then under Babylonian military-rule. He later moved his residence to Nehardea, a small town on the Euphrates with a large Jewish community, where, since the Temple at Jerusalem had been destroyed, he built the first synagogue, which was called “Shaf ve-Yativ”, which means “the Divine Presence is remove and is settle in this place”, which the author of the Seder Olam Zuta”, a medieval Jewish chronicle, regarded as the origin of the Babylonian “Exilarchate”, the office of the “exilarch”, who bore the title “resh-galuta” meaning “exiled-king”, who claimed lordship over the Jewish “Diaspora”. He died 559BC, and, was succeeded as "exilarch" by

2. Shealtiel, step-son, his “acknowledged heir” (Mt 1:12), son of the wife of King Jehoiakin ([Je]Coniah), namely, "Queen" Tamar, the dynasty’s heiress, by a former husband, Prince Neri[ah] (Lk 3:27) (above), was reckoned the “royal Davidic heir” after the death of their late king, Jehoiakin, and numbered the 2nd Exilarch (d545). He begot (a) Zerubabel, whose Babylonian name was Sheshbazzar, & (b) Shimei

3. Zerubabel (Zorobabel), the "royal Jewish heir", 3rd Exilarch at Babylon, circa 545BC; 8th Governor of Judea, circa 537/536BC; 1st Patriarch of Jerusalem and/or "Prince of Judah", circa 515BC; recalled & imprisoned 513BC; executed 510BC. He is called the son of Shealtiel in every Bible reference except in one text (1 Chr 3:19) where he is called the son of Shealtiel’s brother, Pedaiah, which makes that text suspect. This discrepancy is explained by a scribal error in the parent-manuscript of the “MT” or a missing part in the text due to corruption or deterioration of the original manuscript, for  the “LXX” text of 1 Chr 3:19 lists Shealtiel (Salathiel) as Zerubabel’s father.  A theory proposed by one Bible scholar contends that Shealtiel died without issue and that his widow in a “levirate marriage” with his brother Pedaiah gave birth to Zerubabel, but this explanation is unlikely for Zerubabel is called Shealtiel’s son everywhere, even in “Josephus”. The conjecture that Zerubabel, was the son of Pedaiah, who is made into a son of Shealtiel is unlikely also. The discrepancy may have a solution in Zerubabel's marriage to Pedaiah's daughter, Esthra, which made Zerubabel the "son-in-law" of Pedaiah, for there are examples in the Bible where a man is described as the "son" of his wife's father. In any case, Zerubabel was the recognized “royal Davidic heir” of his generation. He was the 23rd generation in male-line descent from King David [numbered 1st generation]. He, upon permission of the Persian shah, led the first and largest colony of Jewish Exiles back to Palestine, and, was entrusted with the office of “governor” [“pehah”] of Judea, his ancestors’ old kingdom to which he was heir, which was now a Persian province. His family did not accompany him, but remained behind in Babylonia [perhaps as hostages] with the majority of the Jewish “Diaspora”. He =1 Amytis, a Babylonian princess, called a “foreign wife”; =2 Rhodah, a Persian princess [who later re-married a Persian prince], called a "foreign wife"; =3 Esthra, a Jewish princess [his cousin], daughter of Pedaiah, his father's brother 

issue of his 1st wife:

(24A) Shazrezzar [a Babylonian name], the ancestor of the Abiudite Line, a major Davidic line

issue of his 2nd wife:

(24B) Reza (Rhesa) [a Persian name] [the half-brother through his mother of the Persian Shah Darius I “The Great“], the ancestor of the Rhesaite Line, a major Davidic line

issue of his 3rd wife:

(24C) Meshullam, 4th Exilarch, ancestor of the dynasty's senior-line of descent & its dual-branches, the Tobaids & the Onaids (collateral-lines)

(24D) Hananiah (Khanayia) (Chanania) ["A"], 5th Exilarch, ancestor of the Pelatiahite Line [anti-kings and rivals of the Tobaids & the Onaids] & the Yeshaiahite Line [Babylonian Exilarchs, 1st Dynasty]

(24E) Shelomith, a daughter, the wife of Elnathan, Governor of Judea 510-490BC [distant-cousin], who represented another Davidic lineage


note: Ezra "The Scribe", during his reforms (458/457BC), ruled in favor of the descendants of Zerubabel by his Jewish wife, and said "to be Jewish one's mother had to be"; and, that is why the descent-lines of the sons of Zerubabel’s "foreign wives" were omitted from "Chronicles", which was written by Ezra’s scribes. Therefore, the descendants of Zerubabel’s Jewish [3rd] wife are listed first. The failure of the senior-line in 4BC obliged the Sanhedrin to legitimate the descendants of Zerubabel by his [1st & 2nd] "foreign wives", who were the ancestors of Christianity's Holy Family.

genealogy [medieval Palestinian "nesi'im", House of Ha-Nasi ]

(73) Azariah I, 34th Exilarch [3rd Dyn.] (above), the father of

(74) Solomon, the father of 

(75) Yeshai (Josiah) ["C"], settled with his father (above) at Aleppo, Syria, where his descendants reconstituted the palestinian patriarchate, ancestor of the Dayan Family 

[note: the pedigree of The Day[y]an Family given in "Yashir Mosheh" (1879) traces the lineage to Josiah [A], son of the Exilarch Solomon II [32], though, the pedigree of the Day[y]an Family given in an unpublished manuscript written in 1617 by the great Rabbi Kehahr [abrev. = Kevod HaRav HaGaon] traces the lineage to Josiah [B], the son of Solomon II's son the Exilarch Azariah I [34], however, the article "DAYYAN [fam.]" in the "Encyclopaedia Judaica" traces the lineage to Josiah [C], the son of Prince Solomon, the son of the Exilarch Azariah I [34], which harmonizes the sources and satisfies chronological difficulties]

(76) Hayyim, son of (75) Yeshai (Josiah) ["C"] (above), was the father of 

(77) David, who begot

(78) Zechariah, who begot

(82) Shelomo, who begot

(83) Yehuda Ha-Nasi [5], who begot

(84) Ovadia (Obadia), who begot

(85) Zedaka (Tzedaka), who begot

(86) Seadia (Sedayah) Ha-Nasi [8], who begot

(87) Moshe Ha-Nasi [9], who begot

(88) Ovadia Ha-Nasi [10], who begot

(89) Zedaka Ha-Nasi [11], who begot

(90) Ovadia Ha-Nasi [12], who begot

(91) Moshe Ha-Nasi [13], Chief Justice of "Bet Din" [= "Sanhedrin"] (1500), who begot

(92) Seadia Ha-Dayan, who, was appointed “Supreme Rabbinical Judge” by his older brother, the "Nasi" [Ovadia III] [14], and, begot

(94) Mordechai "Zalhah" Ha-Dayan (1541-90), a judge, who begot

(95) Nathan Ha-Dayan (c1575-1650), a judge, who emigrated from Damascus to Jerusalem, then later moved to Hebron, and begot

(96) Yosef Dayan,  who became the "royal heir" upon the extinction of the senior-line, i.e., the Nasi Family, in 1678; adopted "Day[y]an" as his family's surname


[note: the prophet Hosea wrote (3:4-5) that "...the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and...afterwards, shall the children of Israel return to their land [which is happening at the present time], and seek after The Lord, their God, and David, their king, the latter days". Are these "the latter days" of which the prophet spoke? If so, the prophecy may speak not only of the inevitable rebuilding of the Third Temple in Jerusalem but also of the restoration of the ancient Jewish monarchy! And, what better a symbol of national sovereignty than a monarchy?]

PART 20: "The Holy Family" & the "Desposyni"/"Desposynoi"


(42) Joseph (above), the heir of the descendants of Zorobabel and his 1st wife, married (42) "The Virgin" Mary (above), daughter of Heli, the heir of the descendants of Zorobabel and his 2nd wife, and were the "legal" parents of

(43A) JESUS "THE CHRIST" [of Mary alone], see


note: the dogma that Mary was "ever virgin" has caused confusion as to the identity of the so-called “brothers” and “sisters” of Jesus who are referred to in scripture (Mt 13:55,56; Mk 6:3). There are three views: (a) the Protestant view is that they were the later children of Joseph and Mary; (b) the Catholic view is that they were the children of either Joseph’s brother Ptolas, which is the more probable case, or the children of Joseph’s brother Clopas, which is unlikely for it identifies Jesus’ “brethren” with His disciples. The most feasible scenario is that upon the early death of Joseph’s brother Ptolas, his widow, Escha, moved into the home of her “in-laws”, Joseph and Mary, and died herself shortly after leaving behind her young children to be brought up by them. And, (c) the Orthodox view is that they were Joseph’s children of a previous marriage, or by a “levirate marriage”. The possibility that Joseph had children of his brother’s [Ptolas’] widow, Escha, in a “levirate marriage” while he was also married to “The Virgin” Mary is not improbable nor contrary to Jewish practice of that time (Dt 25:5).


the (so-called) "brothers" and "sisters" of Jesus were:

(43B) James "Major", "Saint James", also called "The Just", the first “Nasi” of the Nazarene Sanhedrin, that is, the first "Chief Apostle" [or "Pope"] of The Church, the Jerusalem “Mother-Church” (killed AD62). St. Paul mentions St. James in 1 Cor 9:5 in a way that suggests St. James had been married and was by then a widower; and Jude (Judas) called "the son of James" in Luke 6:16 is generally regarded as his son. John, "the brother of Jude", was another of James' sons. The hereditary bishops of Seleucia, in Syria, claimed descent from Jose [whose epithet was "Mar"], who was said to have been a son of James, "the Lord's brother".


note: the office of apostle [pope] of the Jerusalem Church was elective by the toss of lots, however, confined to the "Desposyni"/"Desposynoi" [= "The Master's Kin"], thus, the office was hereditary in one family-group, though, open to any member of that family-group, sort of like a Christian caliphate, and, was the “original papacy”, called the "n'tzarim" [= “overseer of the Nazarenes“, which was an early name for “Christians”], which in AD 304 was usurped by the Bishops of Rome, who sought to wipe out the "desposyni" to protect and maintain their position. The “desposyni” took the surname "Kyriakon", meaning "The Lord's House".

(83) Flatauld (Flaald) [C], another possible ancestor of the Stuarts, compare above


note: the royal Stuarts descend from a Breton prince whose name was Flaald, the problem is there were three contemporary persons of that name in the Breton royal/ducal house alive at the same-time, which presents the question: which one of the three was the ancestor of the royal Stuarts?; was he:

(a) Flaald [A], the son of Banquo, has been the traditional ancestor of the Stuarts from the time Shakespeare who referred to him in “Macbeth”; however, perhaps Shakespeare purposely made the identification as Banquo’s son for political reasons.

(b) Flaald [B], the son of Hamon, Vicomte de Dinan, is generally accepted today by academia as the true ancestor of the Stewarts/Stuarts

(c) Flaald [C], the son Alan, represents an alternative pedigree, hence, all three descent-lines are given for consideration:


the descent-lines of Flaald [A], Flaald [B], & Flaald [C] all stem from (67) Alan II "Le Long" (above), which are:

Line-A & Line-B are basically two families of the same descent-line

(82B) Benedict, through whom the dynasty continues

(82C) Hamo[n], Vicomte de Dian, the father of (83) Flaald [B], the probable ancestor of the Stuarts

(83) Flatauld, aka Flaald [C], who is often confused with either (84) Flaald [A], son of Banquo (above), or (83) Flaald [B], son of Hamo (above), any one of whom may be the Flaald who was the ancestor of the Stuarts

[note: Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, is a male-line descendant of Helyas "The Swan-Knight" through the Counts of Oldcastle (Oldenburg), however, his official genealogy is traced through the royal house of Greece, which may trace its descent from ancient Greek kings]



There are today several families which can trace their descent in the male-line from the Davidic Dynasty, which are:

(a) the Levine Family, an off-shoot of the Harlap [Charlap] Family, which is itself an off-shoot of the Ibn Yahya Family, whose eponymous ancestor was Yahya Ha-Nasi, aka Don Yahya "El Negro", the "Lord of Aldeia dos Negros", Portugal, who descended from a dynasty of the Jewish Palestinian Nesi'im, i.e., the House of Mar-Zutra, which was representative of the Ahijahite Line, the "2nd" dynasty of Babylonian Exilarchs

(b) the Dayan Family, whose eponymous ancestor was Yosef Dayan of Aleppo, Syria, who became the royal heir of [another] dynasty of the Jewish Palestinian Nesi'im, its collateral-line, the Nasi Family, upon its extinction, which were both representative of the House of Bostanai, the "3rd" dynasty of Babylonian Exilarchs [note: the Dayan Family appears to have the best claim to Israel's throne, for Dr. Nahum Sloushz in his article "Where are the True Descendants of King David?", in "The Jewish Morning Journal", September 1, 1933, says that Rabbi Isaac (Yitzhak) Dayan was considered the head of King David's House in his time due primarily to his strong personality, but not due to his place in the dynasty's genealogy. too, in 1617 the old great Rabbi Kehahr [abrev. = Kevod HaRav HaGaon] recorded in an unpublished manuscript the descent-line of his contemporary Nathan Ha-Dayan [son of Mordechai Zalhah Ha-Dayan and father of Yosef Dayan, the royal heir] in which he heaps praise upon him reminiscence of the praise heaped upon the post-exilic royal heir Zerubabel by the prophets Haggai and Zechariah, which suggests God's appointment of him and his descendants as the heirs of the Davidic Dynasty and/or the ancient Jewish kings]

(c) the Schneerson Family, whose eponymous ancestor was Schneur Zalman Boruchovitch, called "The Alter Rebbe", who descended in the male-line from Yehuda Lieb, called "The Maharal of Prague", who was representative of a secondary-line of the House of Bostanai, the "3rd" dynasty of Babylonian Exilarchs

(d) those families which claim royal Davidic descent as a part of their family's tradition and can produce spotty evidence to support their claims, however, their genealogies have gaps and they can not fully document their claims, such as the Shaltiel Family, the Berdugo Family, etc. Though, these families have gaps in their genealogies, nevertheless, it is known who their family-ancestor was; thus, the ancestors of these families maybe found on the Davidic Dynasty Family-Tree. [note: the descendants of Baha'u'llah are extinct in the male-line, and, the pedigree of the modern-day claimant Mohammed Mohadjer is highly suspect]

(e) those families which claim Davidic ancestry in virtue of their descent from the "Rashi" of Troyes, who was known to have been a scion of the Davidic Dynasty through one of its secondary-lines. The "Rashi", though, had only daughters and no sons, thus, descent from him can only be traced through a female-link. The problem here is that no daughter can pass on an inheritance unless she is married to "one of her father's house", in this case, the Davidic Dynasty, that is, the husband and/or the father of the children of an heiress must be a male-line descendant of her father's house [in this case King David's House], according to the Mosiac law (Num 28:8; Num 36:8). Now, we know that the husbands of the Rashi's three daughters each claimed male-line Davidic descent, however, their genealogies are lost, and you know what Ezra "The Scribe" thought about lost genealogies

(f) the "rex deus" families which trace their ancestry from the "Desposyni", i.e., descendants of Christianity's Holy Family; such as the royal Stewarts/Stuarts of Scotland and England [note: Thomas Plantard de Saint-Clair does not descend from a "rex deus" family as one genealogy claims him to be, but is the male-line heir of the Jewish prince Makhir, aka Theodore of Narbonne, whose genealogy has gaps]

(g) the male-line heirs of Ethiopia's original Axumite [Solomonic] Dynasty, which has been reduced to only one male-line descendance, the Shoa[ite] Line, or, the descendants [if any] of the Ethiopian prince Birru Birru, after whom would follow the descendants [if any] of his 3rd cousin, Amaze Neche Tayye, after whom would follow any male-line descendants [if any] of Darge Sahle, the younger brother of their respective great-grand-fathers. The modern day pretenders to Ethiopia's throne only descend from Ethiopia's national dynasty through female-links, which makes today's pretenders ineligible for succession to King David's throne. The last Ethiopian monarch descended from Ethiopia's original Axumite [Solomonic] Dynasty was the Empress Woisero Zawditu (1916-1930), who died without surviving issue
