According to most historical reconstructions, Ahaziah of Judah was the natural son of Jehoram of Judah and Athaliah of the House of Omri, and Jehoram was the natural son of Jehoshaphat and an unnamed spouse. The relevant biblical data are anything but clear, however, and this proposal and the alternatives heretofore advanced are not entirely satisfactory. This essay proposes (1) that Ahaziah was son of Athaliah and Jehoram's unnamed elder brother, Jehoshaphat's first-born and heir-apparent who predeceased them both; (2) that Jehoram, a younger son not expected to become king of Judah, was married to an unidentified daughter of Ahab and Jezebel and at the death of his brother-in-law Ahaziah became king of (North-)Israel; and (3) that as Jehoshaphat's oldest, or only, surviving son, Jehoram also became king of Judah at his death.
