David may have written Psalm 72 after he installed Solomon as king.   
The caption "Of Solomon" in the subscription could mean David wrote this Psalm "of" or about Solomon.

Many thanks for this thread, which has stimulated me to wander in fascination for several hours into my Catholic history and encyclopedia.  I encourage all readers to try a search along the lines of "beginning of the Holy Roman Empire" in your favorite search engine and share your reaction here.  I think you will be amazed, appalled, and saddened at the extent of misinformation, contradiction, and bias.  I am reminded of Jesus' teaching to Nicodemus, Jn 3:19, "...the Light came into the world but (many) people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil."
I think Bing is much more objective than the other search engines, but sadly it too shows a wide range of dubious assertions.


   
 
eschator83, I am glad that you like this thread about the Holy Roman Empire. The Holy Roman Empire has years of history that can be learned about.
