The reign of King Elah in Israel (886-885 BCE) (1 Kings 16:8-16:8)

“In the twenty-sixth year of King Asa of Judah, Elah son of King Baasha began to reign over Israel in Tirzah. He reigned two years.”

The son of Baasha, Elah reigned over Israel from Tirzah only 2 years. Short reigns mean that some killings might be involved. Such is the case here.
