    Queen Jezebel) had married Jehoram (son of Judah’s King Jehoshaphat) to cement a treaty (2 Chronicles 18:1). Athaliah and Jehoram’s son was Ahaziah. Ahaziah became the 6th king of Judah and ruled for one year. Elisha anointed Jehu, an army commander, as the new king of Israel.

He also killed all of the prophets of Baal in Israel (2 Kings 10:18-35). He killed both Joram (king of Israel) and Ahaziah (king of Judah) –2 Kings 9:14-29.
