       Prophets when in exile, Daniel, Haggai, Ezra, Nehemiah, Zechariah.

       Even though the prophets are listed with a particular king, they may overlap ministries and/or kings. For example, Ahijah was a prophet during the reigns of Solomon, Rehoboam and Jereboam. There are other prophets mentioned but most not by name. And, of course, Jesus is our Great Prophet.
