Today, 2896 years ago, in the year 2884, King Shaul, and his three sons die in war.

Seder Olam tells us that King Shaul died four months after Shmuel Hanavi’s passing. In Tur & Shulchan Aruch we learn that Shmuel passed away on the 28th of Iyar, thus for months later, 28 Elul, marks the yahrzeit of the Royal Family of King Shaul.
