Dear 100 Hour Board,

How many kings did Daniel last through? I can think of four off of the top of my head, but I am sure that there is more than that. Why were kings being changed up so much?

A: Dear Fredjikrang,
There only seems to be four as you said.

Dan. 1:1. IN the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.

Dan. 1:21. And Daniel continued even unto the first year of king Cyrus.

Dan. 5:1. BELSHAZZAR the king made a great feast to a thousand of his lords, and drank wine before the thousand.

Dan. 5:31. And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old.

The king situation was changed so often because either the Lord took the kingdom from them or they died.
