The Kingdom is a community of survivors found in Washington, D.C., who are based at a high school surrounded by a wall of buses and sheets of metal. It is the second biggest settlement after the Hilltop Colony. The safe-zone is encountered in Issue 108 of The Walking Dead

Overview

Pre-Apocalypse

Almost nothing is known about The Kingdom before the outbreak began, only that it was a school. 

Post-Apocalypse

Before The Saviors

Eventually the survivors fixed themselves on the campus of a school, with Ezekiel as their leader. Not much has been explored about this community, but they are a part of the same trading system to which the Hilltop and The Saviors belong. It is stated by Paul Monroe that the residents live in the school during winter, and, in the summer, they sleep and live in tents based in the school yard. He goes on to say that no one, not even known allies of the community, can enter or see Ezekiel without an escort.

Conflict With The Saviors

Paul and Rick Grimes come to Ezekiel with a plan to use the Alexandria Survivors, the Hilltop Colony residents, and the inhabitants of The Kingdom to defeat Negan and The Saviors. Ezekiel gives his word of support in the battle, and proceeds to ally his forces with the Hilltop Colony and Alexandria Safe-Zone in the upcoming war against Negan. Over the course of the next few weeks, Rick, Paul, and Ezekiel hold meetings at The Kingdom to discuss their war forces and battle plans against Negan. Ezekiel and many of his soldiers leave The Kingdom to temporarily move to Alexandria in order to be closer to The Sanctuary for the upcoming assault on it.

Exodus

After Alexandria's bombing, and subsequent relocation to Hilltop, Ezekiel sends a message to his people asking everyone to move to Hilltop altogether, abandoning The Kingdom and merging all three communities into a single, massive group.

The Kingdom fought in the Battle of Hilltop and took part in the victory. After the war, all members returned to the high school and began to rebuild.

Two Years Later

The Kingdom still exists and is connected with the other communities by a reinforced road. After the death of their leader, Ezekiel, William takes charge of the Kingdom.
