The Extent of Solomon's Kingdom in 1 Kings

c. 971-931 b.c.

Solomon's reign marked the high point of Israel's power and wealth in biblical times. Solomon's father, David, had given him a kingdom that included Edom, Moab, Ammon, Syria, and Zobah. Solomon would later rule over the kingdom of Hamath as well, and his marriage to Pharaoh's daughter resulted in an alliance with Egypt. Solomon controlled important trade routes between several major world powers, including Egypt, Arabia, Mesopotamia, and Anatolia (Asia Minor).
