(contempt), son of Ebed, aided the Shechemites in their rebellion against Abimelech. (Judges 9:1) ... (B.C. 1206.)

ATS Bible Dictionary
Gaal

Jud 9:26-41, son of Ebed, perhaps a descendant of Hamor, the father of Shechem, Genesis 34:2-6. He joined the Shechemites when revolting against Aimelech, son of Gideon, inflamed their passions, and led them to battle, but was defeated, and excluded from the city.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Loathing, the son of Ebed, in whom the Shechemites "placed their confidence" when they became discontented with Abimelech. He headed the revolution, and led out the men of Shechem against Abimelech; but was defeated, and fled to his own home (Judges 9:26-46). We hear no more of him after this battle.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
