So Jehu slew all that remained of the house of Ahab in Jezreel, and all his great men, and his kinsfolks, and his priests, until he left him none remaining.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

10:11 none remaining. Jehu had been commissioned to destroy the house of Ahab (II Kings 9:7-9), and he carried it out with zeal. After slaying all those in Jezreel, he did the same in Samaria the capital (II Kings 10:17), and even Ahab’s more distant relatives from Judah (II Kings 10:13-14). Jehu finally destroyed all the leaders of Baal worship in Israel (II Kings 10:20-28). Thus was the prophetic word of both Elijah and Elisha fulfilled (I Kings 21:21-24; II Kings 9:8-9).
