Hope you know that Judah had its own king who reported to the King of Israel, kinda like a sub-monarchy; the Old Testament names the Kings of Judah also, you should look into that. Judah was an enclave of Israel while it existed. So your box there is clearly the "Kings of Israel", not the Kings of Judah. And the box should resolve over the matter that you placed it in the Davidic line article. King Saul is not in the Davidic line, because he is not the father of David, the Davidic line is the royal blood of David, otherwise it would be stated as Saulic line...a huge negative!

Judah was not a sub-monarchy to Israel. Read here how Jeroboam revolted from the Kingdom of Judah.
This template does not indicate that Saul was Davidic. It just lists the kings in historical order.--Carlaude (talk) 20:43, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

Saul, David, and Solomon were the Kings of Israel and of Judah thus the term "Kingdom of Israel (united monarchy)" refers to the union of what is later called the "Kingdom of Israel (Samaria or Northern Kingdom)" and the "Kingdom of Judah"
Read David, the section "David made king":
"...the death of Saul and Jonathan is described in the closing chapter of 1 Samuel, then David goes up to Hebron, where he is anointed king over Judah; in the north, Saul's son Ish-Bosheth is king over the tribes of Israel.[1]... Yet with the death of the son of Saul, the elders of Israel come to Hebron, and David is anointed King of Israel and Judah. Upon these events he is 30 years old.[2]"
This is from 2 Samuel 2:1-10 and 5.--Carlaude (talk) 08:45, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
