Jehoiachin, also known as Coniah and Jeconiah, was a king of Judah who was dethroned by the King of Babylon in the 6th century BC and was taken into captivity. He was the son and successor of King Jehoiakim. Records of Jeconiah’s existence have been found in Iraq, such as the Jehoiachin’s Rations Tablets. These tablets were excavated near the Ishtar Gate in Babylon and have been dated to c. 592 BC.
