About Tamar ., Heiress of the Davidic Dynasty


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 Solomon

18) Johanan [Yohannan], the crown-prince (above), eldest son of (17) King JOSIAH, was the father of an only child, a daughter, Tamar[-Tephi] (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.
