History Card: King Solomon


King Solomon
c 10th Century BC

Though there is no hard archaeological evidence that Solomon ever existed, he fills lilterature and the holy works of three religions with interesting legends.  He is said to have had angels (and jinns) at his command and to have a host of magical powers.  Of course most interesting are the stories of his ladies-- most notably the Queen of Sheba.  Read more about Solomon here.
