Ehud was Judge for 76 years?? According to From Eden To Exile p 233, 1344-1268 is the timespan of peace after the Moabite Oppression. But on p 236 he indeed gives Ehud's judgeship as 1344-1268...  Huh

anyways...

Indeed, Rohl does explain the length of Ehud's Judgeship thus, though maybe he was just long lived, a la Pepi 2 or Rim-Sin of Larsa.

Another thought: since Abimelech declared himself king, is there any way you could add him to a chart of kings?

I'm not sure. His kingship was pretty brief, bloody and not exactly in positive public memory ... But maybe I should indeed.

This is an old chart
 of the United Monarchy period:

And a new one (with Abimelech)


btw: was the old chart format better to read?

I'd probably go with the new chart - the text is larger so that may be the easiest to read.

I do like the way you've incorporated synchronisms with Egypt in the older chart though.

My Abimelech idea was mainly due to his being the first to attempt to forge an Israelite monarchy (centred largely, if memory serves, around Shechem & the Hill Country of Ephraim). As such, it is of interest to me in looking for parallels between his conduct and those of the later monarchs (especially would be usurpers such as Absalom, Sheba the son of Bichri and Adonijah).
