King David was winding down his life when his son Adonijah decided to proclaim himself King. It would seem David hadn’t communicated his intent of naming Solomon his successor with his own family or his people.
In 1 Kings 1:20 Bathsheba pleaded with King David, “My lord the king, the eyes of all Israel are on you, to learn from you who will sit on the throne of my lord the king after him.”
Fortunately, before King David passed away he did publicly proclaim Solomon as King and undermined Adonijah’s effort to seize the throne.
