Kib

Kib, the grandson of Jared, the founder of the Jaredite nation , was born when his father, Orihah, the first Jaredite king and a righteous ruler, was an old man. Kib succeeded his father on the throne; however, Kib’s son Corihor deposed his father and held him in captivity for many years. Shule, a later son of Kib, rose up against Corihor and restored the kingdom to his father. Shule then succeeded his father and—following a period of bloody family intrigues—was able to restore peace to the land and promote the work of the prophets of God.
