The 'Authorized' King James Version Holy Bible presents to us Queen Makeda of Ethiopia, in all of her beautiful, royal and luxurious fanfare.  

Upon arriving in Judea, with her humongous caravan, loaded down with rare riches from Ethiopia, she was not expecting to be totally awestruck at the magnificence of the court, ministers, servants, wealth and riches of King Solomon; not even realizing the deep treasures of wisdom, knowledge and understanding that he would share with her upon their first meeting:  



1 And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord, she came to prove him with hard questions.



2 And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.



3 And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not any thing hid from the king, which he told her not.

4 And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon's wisdom, and the house that he had built,

5 And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the Lord; there was no more spirit in her.

6 And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom.

7 Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.

   8 Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom. 

   9 Blessed be the LORD thy God, which delighted in thee, to set thee on the throne of Israel: because the LORD loved Israel for ever, therefore made he thee king, to do judgment and justice.

10 And she gave the king an hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices very great store, and precious stones: there came no more such abundance of spices as these which the queen of Sheba gave to king Solomon.


11 And the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great plenty of almug trees, and precious stones.


12 And the king made of the almug trees pillars for the house of the LORD, and for the king's house, harps also and psalteries for singers: there came no such almug trees, nor were seen unto this day.


13 And king Solomon gave unto the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servants.
(1st Kings Chapter 10:1-7)

King Solomon, was the direct heir to the throne of Jerusalem; as his father was King David, a man after Gods own heart. 

After King Solomon assumed the throne, he was asked by Father God what he wanted; King Solomon said these words:

Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great? 
(II Chronicles 1:10)
'Authorized' King James Version Bible

This is what Father God said to Solomon after his request for wisdom and knowledge; to go out and come in before this people:

And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.
(II Chronicles 1:11-12)
