Absalom, David's third son, by Maacah, was born at Hebron (2 Samuel 3:2). He was King David's favorite son. It was written that Absalom was the most handsome man in the kingdom and that he had a love of pomp and royal pretensions, which captivated his father and the hearts of others. Eventually, Absalom rebelled against his father and was killed during the Battle of Ephraim Wood.
