Ben-Hadad ruled Aram from his royal palace in Damascus from 880-842 BC. In 853 BC, he defeated Shalmaneser king of Assyria at the battle of Qarqar. He was quite fond of attacking Israel. He was murdered by his servant Hazael when recovering from a fever. The Israelites rejoiced at the death of Ben-Hadad but what they didn't know was that Hazael suceeded Ben-Hadad and that he would unleash terror upon Israel.
