King David is not an historical character.

He was not. He was a Hebrew with ruddy skin.

No, ruddy probably means that he had red hair.

When most people think of a person as being black they think of them as like sub-Saharan African black. King David was definitely not black. He had tan skin just like any other nationality that lives around the Mediterranean. Like Italians or Greeks or Northern Africans. Not black but tan. Do you know the actor Rami Malek? He is an Egyptian. That is the type of skin tone that Jews would have had. Definitely not black as most people think when you say someone is black.

Not sure - there's not many photographs of him. I presume the press had restrictions on reporting on him
