Eth-baal in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(with Baal), king of Sidon and father of Jezebel. 1Ki 16:31
Josephus represents him as a king of the Tyrians as well as of
the Sidonians. We may thus identify him with Eithobalus, who,
after having assassinated Pheles, usurped the throne of Tyre
for thirty-two years. The date of Ethbaal's reign may be given
as about B.C. 940-908.

Ithobaal I in Wikipedia
Ithobaal I (or Ethbaal; Biblical Ethbaal, 1 Kings 16:31) was a
king of Tyre who founded a new dynasty. During his reign, Tyre
expanded its power on the mainland, making all of Phoenicia
its territory as far north as Beirut, including Sidon, and
even a part of the island of Cyprus. At the same time, Tyre
also built new overseas colonies: Botrys (now Batrun) near
Byblos, and Auza in Libya.
Primary information related to Ithobaal comes from Josephus’s
citation of the Phoenician author Menander of Ephesus, in
Against Apion i.18. Here it is said that the previous king,
Phelles, "was slain by Ithobalus, the priest of Astarte, who
reigned thirty-two years, and lived sixty-eight years; he was
succeeded by his son Badezorus (Baal-Eser II)."...
