Biblical Character
    (circa 1008 BC-976 BC)
    Third son of King David
    Also known as Avshalom, Avšalom, Abshalom, Abishalom, Abéshalom and Abisalamu
    He was vain and cocky.
    He was known for his luxurious long hair.
    His father, King David, distrusted him and stripped him of his right to the throne.
    He led a rebellion against his father.
    When it failed, he rode away through the forest, but got his long hair caught in a tree.
    His name can be spelled at least seven different ways.
    He was considered the most attractive man in Israel.
    When his brother raped their sister, Absalom had him killed.
    One of King David’s generals found him hanging from the tree and stabbed him to death.

    William Faulkner named a novel, ‘Absalom, Absalom!,’ after him.
