Jehu met with the brethren of Ahaziah king of Judah, and said, Who are ye? And they answered, We are the brethren of Ahaziah; and we go down to salute the children of the king and the children of the queen.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

10:13 brethren of Ahaziah. According to II Chronicles 21:17, the Philistines had already slain all the sons of King Jehoram of Judah, except Jehoahaz, the youngest son (Jehoahaz is the same as Ahaziah). Therefore the “brethren of Ahaziah” who were slain by Jehu (II Kings 10:14) were “brethren” in a generic sense—that is, nephews, cousins, etc.
