The campaign of Pharoah Sheshonq I into the areas of the newly sundered Hebrew kingdoms raises many questions. For a start, we can't reconcile it with the existence of a kingdom in Judah, centred on Jerusalem. The campaign is conventionally dated to 926 BC, during the reign of Solomon's idiot son Rehoboam, but could have occured anywhere from 950 to 905 BC.
