The way the writers of 1st and 2nd  Kings and 1st and 2nd  Chronicles  recorded  the years the Kings ruled make it impossible to give an exact date for each one, for instance, if a King ruled 5 years and 3 months it was counted as 6 years. Since the next King would also count the shared year as a full year these dates are approximate. Also some of the Kings began to rule while the previous King (usually his father) also ruled.

3443 Israel Taken Captive
See Note #3
Below
NOTE # 1
NOTE # 2
NOTE # 3
NOTE # 4
Israel and Judah were both taken captive for their sins. Much of Judah returned and most of Israel never did, yet. What was the difference? Perhaps one got comfortable in captivity while the other could not forget what it was like to have a temple of God in its heart. Are you a Judah or an Israeli?
Gen 15:13  "And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;"
If taken as a literal 400 years of affliction and given the certain length of time that the Israeli's were in Israel (Exodus 12; 41) it is safe to calculate the year the Egyptians began to enslave them. In my opinion it is also safe to assume this was a gradually increasing enslavement until finally they began killing the male newborns.
The Talmud puts Moses' birth at 2368 the difference is that the Talmud counts the captivity of Israel in Egypt as beginning at Isaac which is a 220 year difference. In the Jewish calendar the year 2000 of our calendar was 5761, if the 220 years are added there is still a discrepancy but it is only 19 years over 6000.  
There are a few instances where the relationship between the divided kingdom anchors dates. One of these follows;
 2Ki 18:10 " And at the end of three years they took it: even in the sixth year of Hezekiah, that is the ninth year of Hoshea king of Israel, Samaria was taken. "
Since the line of the kings of Judah was less broken than for Israel adjustments were made which are not certain. Perhaps there were periods where there was no king in Israel, perhaps it is something else. For the purposes of this chart i added these periods and you can come to your own conclusions.
