According to the Hebrew Bible, Rehoboam (Hebrew: רְחַבְעָם‎‎, R'ḥabh'am, meaning "he who enlarges the people"; Greek: Ροβοαμ; Latin: Roboam) was a king of the United Monarchy of Israel and later of the Kingdom of Judah after the ten northern tribes of Israel rebelled in 932/931 BC to form the independent Kingdom of Israel.

He was a son of Solomon and a grandson of David. His mother was Naamah the Ammonite.[1]
