Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible 
Shallum , an inhabitant of Jabesh, was nominally king of Israel for one month in the period of anarchy which preceded the extinction of the nation. As he assassinated his predecessor Zechariah, so in turn he was ‘removed’ by his successor Menahem ( 2 Kings 15:10 ff.).

Bridgeway Bible Dictionary 
Two kings mentioned in the biblical record had the name Shallum, and each reigned for only a very short time. Shallum of Israel gained the throne through murdering the previous king, but one month later he himself was murdered (in 752 BC; 2 Kings 15:10; 2 Kings 15:13-14). Shallum of Judah (who was also known as Jehoahaz) reigned only three months before Pharaoh Necho deposed him and took him captive to Egypt (in 609 BC; 2 Kings 23:30-34; Jeremiah 22:11-12; see Jehoahaz ). Several Old Testament characters of lesser importance also had the name Shallum.
People's Dictionary of the Bible 
Shallum ( Shăl'Lum ), Retribution. The murderer of Zachariah, king of Israel. He usurped the crown, but was slain by Menahem at the end of the first month of his reign, b.c. 771. 2 Kings 15:10-15.
Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary 
This is a very common name in the Old Testament, and frequently given by the Hebrews to their children: and is not to be wondered at, for it is derived from Shalem, peace.
Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature 
(Heb. Shallum', שִׁלּוּ ם , Retribution ; Sept. usually Σελλούμ ), the name of at least twelve Hebrews.
1. The youngest son of Naphtali ( 1 Chronicles 7:13), called also SHILLEM. ( Genesis 46:24). B.C. 1874.
4. Son of Kore, and chief of the porters of the sanctuary in David's time.( 1 Chronicles 9:17 sq., 1 Chronicles 9:31). B.C. cir. 1050. He seems to be the same Shallum whose descendants returned from captivity ( Ezra 2:42; Ezra 10:24; Nehemiah 7:45). He is apparently elsewhere called Meshullam (12:25), Meshelemiah ( 1 Chronicles 26:1), and Shelemiah ( 1 Chronicles 26:14). He was perhaps also the same with the "father" of Maaseiah in Jeremiah 35:4.
5. Son of Zadok and father of Hilkiah, a high priest ( 1 Chronicles 6:12-13; 1 Chronicles 9:11), and an ancestor of Ezra the scribe ( Ezra 7:2). B.C. post 950. He is called Sallumus by Josephus ( Σάλλουμος , Ant. 10, 8, 6). He is the Meshullam of 1 Chronicles 9:11; Nehemiah 11:11. (See High Priest).
6. The sixteenth king of Israel. His father's name was Jabesh. In the troubled times which followed the death of Jeroboam II (B.C. 781), the latter's son Zechariah was slain in the presence of the people by Shallum (B.C. 769), who by this act extinguished the dynasty of Jehu, as was predicted ( 2 Kings 10:30). (See Jehu); (See Zechariah). being opposed and slain by Menahem, who ascended the throne thus vacated ( 2 Kings 15:10-15). (See Kingdom Of Israel).
8. The son of Tikvah and husband of the prophetess Hulldah ( 2 Kings 22:14). B.C. cir. 630. He appears to have been the custodian of the sacerdotal wardrobe ( 2 Chronicles 34:22). He was probably the same with Jeremiah's uncle ( Jeremiah 32:7).
9. King of Judah, son of Josiah ( Jeremiah 22:11), better known as Jehoahaz II (q.v.). Hengstenberg ( Christology Of The Old Test. 2 , 400, Eng. transl.) regards the name as symbolical, "the recompensed one," and given to Jehoahaz in token of his fate, as one whom God recompensed according to his deserts. This would be plausible enough if it were only found in the prophecy; but a genealogical table is the last place where we should expect to find a symbolical name, and Shallum is more probably the original name of the king, which was changed to Jehoahaz when he came, to the crown. Upon a comparison of the ages of Jehoiakim, Jehoahaz or Shallum, and Zedekiah, it is evident that of the two last Zedekiah must have been the younger, and therefore that Shallum was the third, not the fourth, son of Josiah, as stated in 1 Chronicles 3:15.
10. A priest of the descendants of Bani, who had taken a strange (i.e. idolatrous) wife, and was compelled by Ezra to put her away ( Ezra 10:42). B.C. 457.
11. One of the Levitical porters who did the same ( Ezra 10:24). B.C. 457.
12. Son of Halohesh and "ruler of the half part of Jerusalem," who, with his daughters, aided in building the walls ( Nehemiah 3:12). B.C. 445.
