About Johanan, Crown Prince of Judah

Crown Prince Johanan 18 was killed in battle with his father, King Josiah against Pharaoh Necho III in the year of 609 BCE. He had no sons, and one daughter, Princess Tamar, who became dynastic heiress of the House of

17. JOSIAH, King of JUDAH 640-609 18. JOHANAN, crown-prince, killed 609, full-bro of JEHOIAKIM, King of JUDAH 609-598, father of JEHOIAKIN, called "THE CAPTIVE" ["ASSIR"], also referred to as [JE]CONIAH, King of JUDAH 598/597; half-bro [different mothers] of JEHOAHAZ, King of JUDAH 609, & ZEDEKIAH, King of JUDAH 598/7-587/6 [last one] 19. TAMAR "TEPHI", queen & heiress (Num. 28:8; 36:8)

1 NERIAH, distant-cousin (Lk. 3:27), was 21st in male-line descent from King David

2 JEHOIAKIN, called "The Captive" ["Assir"], also referred to as [JE]CONIAH, 1st "Exilarch" [= "Exiled-King"], over the Jews during the "Babylonian Captivity"

issue of 2nd marriage ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 20A Zedekiah, crown-prince (died young, c. 598/597BC), 20th in descent from King David through mother Tamar Tephi, not to be confused with Tamar, daughter of King Zedekiah; and, issue by 1st marriage ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 20B/22. Shaltiel [Salathiel], was designated heir-presumptive following the early death of his half-bro, Crown-Prince Zedekiah, only child and son of Queen Tamar [his mother] and her 2nd husband, King JEHOIAKIN, whom he succeeded as the "2nd" Exilarch over the Babylonian Jews; the father of 21/23

a) Johanan [Yohannan], the eldest, the crown prince, father of Tamar "Tephi" (daughter), considered heiress after her father's demise

19) Tamar[-Tephi] (daughter), who, according to the judicial-ruling made by Moses (Num 28:8) and its conditional clause (Num 36:8), was technically the dynasty's heiress. The possibility that Tamar [whose epithet was "Tephi"] may have been the heiress to the throne is not improbable, for, although inheritance among the Jews was according to the male-line, if there were no sons the inheritance of property [in this case, the kingdom] went to the daughter (Num 27:8), on the condition (Num 36:8) that she marry "inside her father’s house" [in this case, the Davidic Dynasty, i.e., the royal house], usually to the next-of-kin in the male-line, otherwise she would forfeit the inheritance. The Jewish scribes normally did not include daughters in the Bible genealogies, and left Tamar out in 1 Chr 3. Her insertion into the royal pedigree at this point resolves all the problems in this portion of the royal genealogy that without her there would be no solutions.
