From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    succeeded his father Jehoiakin (B.C. 599) when only eight years
    of age, and reigned for one hundred days (2 Chr. 36:9). He is
    also called Jeconiah (Jer. 24:1; 27:20, etc.), and Coniah
    (22:24; 37:1). He was succeeded by his uncle, Mattaniah =
    Zedekiah (q.v.). He was the last direct heir to the Jewish
    crown. He was carried captive to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar,
    along with the flower of the nobility, all the leading men in
    Jerusalem, and a great body of the general population, some
    thirteen thousand in all (2 Kings 24:12-16; Jer. 52:28). After
    an imprisonment of thirty-seven years (Jer. 52:31, 33), he was
    liberated by Evil-merodach, and permitted to occupy a place in
    the king's household and sit at his table, receiving "every day
    a portion until the day of his death, all the days of his life"
