What was the capital of Israel during the Old Kingdom?

If you are referring to the United Kingdom of Israel, the capital was initially Hebron, where Saul ruled and where David began his reign. David then conquered Jerusalem and established it as his capital and it continued to serve during Solomon's reign and it remained the capital of Judah until its defeat by Babylon. If the "Old Kingdom" refers to the Northern Kingdom of Israel, the capital was Samaria. If the "Old Kingdom" refers to the Old Kingdom Period in Egyptian History, there was no Israelite Kingdom during that time period as the Old Kingdom precedes the Biblical Arrival of the Israelites by nearly 1000 years.
