A:According to The Bible, Solomon's son, Rehoboam, succeeded him. Shortly afterwards, Israel rebelled against Rehoboam and broke away, installing Jeroboam as its king, leaving Rehoboam as king only of the small enclave of Judah.

Lester L Grabbe (Ancient Israel: What Do We Know and How Do We Know It?) says that these stories are, at least in part, legendary. He cites H M Niemann, who argued that Israel did not become a state until the time of King Omri, over a hundred years later, and Judah not until tirne of Uzziah.

Another Answer:

As noted, shortly after the death of King Solomon, circa 930 BC, the Kingdom of Israel split in two with Jeroboam ruling the Northern Kingdom and Rehoboam ruling Judah (which had many from Benjamin, Simeon, and Levi with him). There is ample archaeological findings to support the Kingdom beginning with the 'golden period' of King David circa 1010-970 BC.
