In the Hebrew Bible:

1) The kings of the united Israelite kingdom were Saul, David, and Solomon.

After Solomon:
2) The kingdom of Judah (Southern Kingdom):

Rehav'am (Rehoboam), Aviyah (Abijah), Asa, Yehoshaphat (Jehoshaphat), Yehoram (Jehoram), Ahaziah, queen Athaliah, Yehoash (Jehoash), Amatziah (Amaziah), Uzziah, Yotam (Jotham), Ahaz, Hizkiah (Hezekiah), Menasheh (Manasseh), Amon, Yoshiah (Josiah), Yehoahaz (Jehoahaz), Yehoyakim (Jehoiakim), Yehoyachin (Jehoiachin, a.k.a. Jeconiah), Tzidkiah (Zedekiah).


3) The kingdom of Israel (Ten Tribes; Northern Kingdom; Samaria):

Yerav'am (Jeroboam), Nadav (Nadab), Baasha, Elah, Zimri, Omri, Ah'av (Ahab), Ahaziah, Yoram (Joram), Yehu (Jehu), Yehoahaz (Jehoahaz), Yehoash (Jehoash), Yerav'am (Jeroboam II), Zachariah, Shallum, Menachem, Pekahiah, Pekah, Hoshea.


How many of the kings were righteous? David (1 Kings 15:5), Solomon (see 1 Kings 3:3), Asa (1 Kings 15:11), Yehoshaphat (1 Kings 22:43), Yehu (2 Kings 10:30), Yehoash (2 Kings 12:3), Amatziah (2 Kings 14:3), Azariah (2 Kings 15:3), Yotam (2 Kings 15:34), Hizkiah (2 Kings 18:3), and Josiah (2 Kings 22:2).

With one exception, the righteous kings were all those of Judah, not the Ten Tribes.

There were many but the first king of Israel was Saul who disobeyed God and then David became king and his descendents after him. Read 1 Samuel - 2 Chronicles to find out more specific names of kings of Israel and Judah (the nation that split from Israel)
