Death of Solomon

Sound: Hnn, wheeze, gasp. Valet: The King! He's DEAD! Narrator: And so, in Jerusalem. People in marketplace: He's dead! Who's dead! The King! What? When? Who is next in line? Did you hear? Narrator: And pretty much everywhere else. Caravan merchants: No, really! Solomon of Israel, dead? Other merchant: Rehoboam is to be crowned next week.

Solomon’s valet hears the King struggling for breath. When he arrives at the bed, Solomon has died. The valet runs down the palace corridor, filled with courtiers, shouting the news. Jerusalem is buzzing with the news. Merchant caravans passing each other on a trade route exchange updates on this important political development.
