In light of several recent claims that the authors of Kings made use of royal inscriptions, this paper reviews the various kinds of evidence bearing on the matter. The first focus of attention is the evidence for the production of royal inscriptions in Israel and Judah: literary (biblical) references as evidence of native belief in such and archaeological (epigraphic) evidence of actual inscriptions. Fragmentary as it is, this evidence supports the claim that at least royal building inscriptions were produced. Second, assuming that the kings of Israel and Judah would have addressed similar subjects on similar occasions to those addressed by neighboring kings in royal inscriptions, the author examines the evidence for the appearance in Kings of material characteristic of the Northwest Semitic royal inscriptions recovered to date from neighbors of Israel and Judah. Here the conclusion is negative - although the study supports the hypothesis of Kings' use of an Israelite king list.
