King Solomon was a ruler around 967 BC in the Egypt area. Son of King David. I believe he ruled for about 40 years.
He is mentioned in the bible in the book of Kings I and Chronicles II.
He's known for building the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
Solomon is well known as well for magic and his control over demons he supposedly used to build the great temple. There are several books that contain Solomon. The testament of Solomon being one. There are the keys of Solomon and much more. there is a tradition of magic named after him Solomonic magic. Esotericarchieves.com has a good amount of texts related to Solomon.
He is that great guy, in the back of my mind, as a peace keeper for his land. His father was the opposite, he was a man of war. Solomon was smart. He made peace with the surrounding people, but I think he back-slid. He was still great, but he is responsible for a lot of occult drawings and knowledge, in my opinion. Heck, I think he is responsible for the nation's flag, if you know what I mean.
