Nadab from Guillaume Rouillé's Promptuarii Iconum Insigniorum

Nadab (Hebrew: נָדָב‎‎) was the second king of the northern Israelite Kingdom of Israel. He was the son and successor of Jeroboam. (1 Kings 14:20)

Nadab became king of Israel in the second year of Asa, king of Judah, and reigned for two years. (1 Kings 15:25) William F. Albright has dated his reign to 901 - 900 BCE, while E. R. Thiele offers the dates 910 - 909 BCE.[1]

In the second year of his reign, while they were besieging Gibbethon - a Philistine town in southern Dan (Joshua 19:40-44) - a conspiracy broke out in Nadab's own army. He was slain by one of his own captains, Baasha, who then made himself king of Israel. (1 Kings 15:25-28)

Baasha subsequently assassinated the entire House of Jeroboam; so did this great Ephraimite family become extinct. (1 Kings 15:29) This was consistent with the divine prophecy given via the prophet Ahijah the Shilonite concerning the extinction of the entire House of Jeroboam. (1 Kings 14:1-18)
