The Bible says King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines. As archaeologists say this was a large proportion of the entire population of Jerusalem at the start of the tenth century BCE, this would mean, if read literally, that the entire male population lived in enforced celibacy. Nevertheless, over a period of forty years, the Bible mentions no uprising against Solomon.
