Who was the prophet Iddo?

The other events of Abijah’s reign, what he did and what he said, are written in the annotations of the prophet Iddo. 2 Chronicles 13:22
            The prophet Iddo lived around the time of the kings Solomon, Rehoboam and Abijah.  He had visions concerning Jeroboam, Rehoboam’s nemesis in Israel (2 Chronicles 9:29).  It also appears he recorded parts of history (2 Chronicles 12:15, 13:22). 
            Iddo’s descendant also became a prophet, Zechariah (Zechariah 1:1) who helped the Jews as they returned to Jerusalem during the time of Ezra (Ezra 5:1).
            Iddo does not get much attention these days but he was a significant individual who God used at a critical time.
