Solomon , King of Israel
King Solomon was the second son of Uria's wife , Bathsheba, whom his father, King David , had married after orchestrating his death.
King Solomon reigned in Israel between 970 and 931 B.C.E. and was known and respected as a wise , fair and powerful king. King Solomon raised the Israelite monarchy to the maximum grade of prosperity. King Solomon built the Jerusalem Temple , and a wall around the city as well as cultivated the sciences and the arts.
It is told in history that there was a case in which two women were fighting for a child and King Solomon , in order to find out which one was telling the truth , King Solomon gave his sword to a soldier and ordered him to split the baby in two , giving 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. In this way , King Solomon knew inmediately which one was lying , showing great wisdom and fairness.
