The reign of King Rehoboam (931-913 BCE) (1 Kings 14:29-14:31)

“The rest of the acts of King Rehoboam, and all that he did, are they not written in the Book of the Annals of the Kings of Judah? There was war between Rehoboam and Jeroboam continually. Rehoboam slept with his ancestors. He was buried with his ancestors in the city of David. His mother’s name was Naamah the Ammonite. His son Abijam succeeded him.”

Once again, we have a reference to another lost book, “The Book of the Annals or Chronicles of the Kings of Judah.” This must have been something like the book for the kings of Israel. Once again, it may have been the local royal scribes keeping records. Rehoboam and Jeroboam are almost synchronized in their reigning. They spent most of their life fighting and warring against each other. Rehoboam seems to have died before Jeroboam.
