After you leave I will tell the king what has happened. Of course, there probably will be an actual 3rd Temple built in Jerusalem. Apart from that not much was written about him.

If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 9 One day, at Zoheleth Rock near En Rogel,[b] Adonijah sacrificed some sheep, cattle, and fat calves as a fellowship offering.

Acts 3:17 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. Solomon rightly saw Adonijah’s desire to marry Abishag as part of his brother’s ongoing attempt to take over the kingdom of Israel. He had already survived one of his sons (Absalom) attempted coup to take away the Throne of Israel. Abishag had been part of King David’s Harem, so for Adonijah to desire her as his wife was his final attempt to wrest control of the Throne from King Solomon. They were very happy and excited.
