Rehoboam reigned for 17 yrs
(I Kings 14:17).
Abijam his son began his accession year (<). Abijam began his 3 year reign in the 18th year of King Jeroboam. (I Kings 15:1)
Asa became king in the 20th year of Jeroboam (his accession period, I Kings 15:9). His reign began Tishri 1, 914 BC. He reigned 41 years



















Asa began his 41st and final year
then Jehoshaphat began his accession year upon the death of Asa. Jehoshaphat began his 25 year reign in the 4th year of Ahab(I Kings 22:41)















In the 5th year of Joram the son of Ahab, Jehoshaphat was already reigning in Judah when his son Jehoram began to co-reign with him (II King 8:16). Jehoram reigned 8 years.

According to II Kings 9:29 Ahaziah the son of Jehoram became king in the 11th year of Joram (his accession period). But his 1 year reign must have been in co-regency with his father in the 12th year of Joram (II Kings 8:25) when upon the death of his father he reigned but very soon after is killed by Jehu.
Upon the death of Ahaziah at the hands of Jehu then Athaliah began to reign in Jerusalem. Athaliah reigned for six years. Athaliah tried to destroy all heirs from the House of David but Joash was preserved alive as an infant child (II Kings 11:3). Jehoiada the priest had Athaliah killed and seven year old Jehoash was made king in the 7th year of Jehu, he reigned forty years (II Kings 12:1).

Judah's kings used the accession year method with Tishri - Tishri dating. It started with King Saul and continued until the final king, Zedekiah. About King Saul's reign, read and understand the dating precedent God set in I Samuel 13:1 Under the accession year method the outgoing king counted his final year as a whole year regardless of how long he reigned. The new king would begin his reign at the start of the next civil year (Tisrhri 1).
In Baasha's final year, Elah his son began his 2 year reign after Tishri in 26th year of Asa, I Kings 16:8. Elah is killed by Zimri in the 27th year of Asa. ( I Kings 16:15-19) Zimri began 7 day reign Nisan 1, 887 BC but dies in fire. Israel then follows both Omri & Tibni until sometime after Tishri in the 31st year of Asa when Omri began his sole reign, he reigned 12 total years (I Kings 16:23).
Ahab began his 22 year reign in the 38th year of Asa (I Kings 16:29) Asa's 38th year extended from Tishri of 877 BC-Tishri of 876 BC
II Kings 22:51- Ahab's son Ahaziah became king over Israel in the 17th year of Jehoshaphat's reign. He reigned 2 years. He probably began his reign sometime after Nisan in 856 BC. Jehoshaphat's 17th year extended from Tishri 1 857 BC - Tishri 1 856 BC. He co-reigned two years with his father King Ahab. Ahaziah died shortly after Ahab, during his 2nd year. Another son of Ahab named Joram began to reign in the 18th year of Jehoshaphat. Joram reigned 12 years (II Kings 3:1)





Jehu anointed as king and the trumpets were sounded. This possibly happened on the day the Feast of trumpets began (II Kings 9:13) and Jehu reformed Israel. Jehu killed King Joram of Israel & King Ahaziah of Judah & destroys Baal worship in Israel. Thus began the new accession method of Tishri - Tishri dating for Israel’s kings implemented by Jehu when he became king. Jehu reigned 28 years (
II Kings 10:36).





Jehu's
son Jehoahaz began his accession year after Jehu died. He became king in Israel in the 23rd year of Joash.Jehoahaz reigned for 17 years (II Kings 13:1)
In the 37th year of Joash, Jehoash became king over Israel. Jehoash must have co-reigned during his father's final two years. Jehoash reigned 16 years (II Kings 13:10).
Israel's kings used non-accession method beginning with Nisan - Nisan dating. This method started with Jeroboam and continued until the reforms instituted by King Jehu. It is my opinion that Jehu changed Israel's system to accession year method using Tishri - Tishri dating however Jehu continued to follow the evil practices of Jeroboam by worshiping the idols set up in Bethel and Dan. Soon after the four generations of Jehu's heirs reigned the Israelites reverted back to Nisan-Nisan dating. Menahem's reign began on Nisan 1 in 752 BC and the remaining kings also used Nisan-Nisan dating.
Jeroboam reigned 22 years (I Kings 14:20). Nadab his son became king over Israel in the 2nd year of King Asa (I Kings 15:25), he reigned two years but was killed by Baasha. Baasha began to reign in the 3rd year of King Asa(I Kings 15:28). He reigned for 24 years
