Bathsheba makes an appeal to David

Bathsheba makes an appeal to David
Govert Flinck 1615 – 1660
oil on canvas (104 × 152 cm) — 1651
Kings 1:16 - And Bathsheba bowed, and did obeisance unto the king. And the king said, What wouldest thou?
Bathsheba tries to convince king David to let their son Solomon be his heir. David had an older son, Adonijah, with another woman. Adonijah had more rights to the throne than Solomon. In the end Bathsheba got her way. She had much influence during Solomon's reign.
