Daniel_(Son of David)
- According to the Bible, Daniel, also known as Chiliab, was the second son of David, King of Israel, with Abigail, widow of Nabal the Carmelite, David's third wife. (1 Chronicles 3:1, cf 2 Samuel 3:3) Unlike the other of David's three elder sons, Amnon, Absalom, and Adonijah who were important characters in 2 Samuel, Daniel is only named in the list of David's sons and no further mention is made to him. Though being the second son, Daniel was not a contender for the throne of Israel, even after the death of the first-born Amnon, the third-born Absalom and fourth-born Adonijah. The throne eventually passed to his younger half brother, Solomon.
