"Nebuchadnezzar II conquered Israel"

In 587 BC, the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II conquered the empire led by Judah and the inhabitants were forced to the Babylonian exile. After the Israelite king Solomon's death (965-926 BC), the kingdom was divided. North of the empire was still called Israel, while the lower South was called Judea, with Jerusalem as its capital, as large areas were included in the king of Judah. Israel did not exist during the regency of Nebuchadnezzar (who ruled from 605-562 BC). Empire was devastated by the Assyrians in 732 BC.
