Using The Bible, we can work backwards from the fall of Israel, which can be reliably dated to 722 BCE within an error of one year, to the time of Solomon's reign. He is reported to have reigned for 40 years, the same number of years as his father, David. If the Bible is correct, we can date King Solomon's reign to 964-924 BCE.

Conventionally, Solomon is thought to have been born circa 1010 BC and reigned as the 3rd King of Israel from 970 BC until his death in circa 930 BC.
