It is told in history that there was a case in which two women were fighting for a child and King Solomon , in order to find out which one was telling the truth , King Solomon gave his sword to a soldier and ordered him to split the baby in two , giving one half to each of the women. The real mother begged the king not to kill the child and to give him to the other woman. In this way , King Solomon knew immediately which one was lying , showing great wisdom and fairness.
