In the Bible

After Zimri, had ended his life, after a reign of seven days, the people of Israel were divided into two factions, one siding with Omri, and the other with Tibni. They and their forces fought each other for several years until Omri's forces prevailed and Tibni's death. It appears that Tibni was regent over half the kingdom of Israel for a period of four years. Tibni had a brother named Joram, who seconded him in the dispute over the throne and who died at the same time as himself, probably at the hands of Omri's party.[1] Tibni's death is recorded but not explained.

History

Tibni appears to have been of Jerahmeelite origin as his rival Omri.[2]

It was suggested that Tibni is a nickname meaning "man of straw".[3]
