My mother would say, "Son, you need to study your Bible better."  

Until that happens, I have a tough time keeping my kings in order--which was from Israel, and which was from Judah. 

I don't see any tagging for that. 

Wouldn't it be nice to have a visual filter to differentiate them?  If that is possible, how?

I think it's just the effort of making it. I'd use the Person tagging due to overlapping names etc:

It would be nice if the powerful tool called “Factbook” could literally lists the kings for us by simply typing Kings of Israel AND Kings of Judah, but all it seems to be doing is giving you random results; which some aren’t even related.  I wonder why there isn’t a chart for this.  Some books have it, but it’d be better if Factbook could produce it.

Yeah, DAL, I checked out Factbook, too, thinking there should be a nice article or something, but it wasn't there. And I searched through lots of resources and didn't find what the OP was looking for. Surely there's something in my library of a bajillion resources. I'll give it some time this afternoon.

On a related note, does anyone know of a good chart that lists the kings and whether they were “good” or “bad” ?

ESV Study Bible has a simple chart: https://ref.ly/logosres/esvsb?ref=BibleESV.1Ki14.29

It's at 1 Kings 14:29

These are all useful resources and I thank each of you for sharing some great finds. 

I was and still am imagining a way to use the visual filter to accomplish this.
