At Shechem, Rehoboam, Solomon's son, presented himself before the elders of Israel to be made king as successor of his father. The people bitterly complained of the burden Imposed on them through the oppressive rule of Solomon and requested him to inform them whether he would lighten their burden
After due consultation with the elders and the youngmen, he rejected the advice of the elders whose advice was to lighten the burden of the people. Rather, he accepted the advice of the young men who advised him to declare increasing burden. The declaration as directed by the young men gave rise to Rebellion and division of the kingdom of Israel into Northern and Southern kingdoms. The north was under Jeroboam while the south remained under Rehoboam. The declaration thus marked the beginning of the period of a divided monarchy and divided kingdom.
