If anything worth noting happened in this man's life, we do not know any of it that happened previous to the year AD 16. For in this year, Giddianhi, leader of the band of Gadianton robbers at the time, sends a threatening letter to Lachoneus, demanding surrender of the Nephites, and threatening their destruction if they didn't. Lachoneus was surprised at this, but not scared, and commanded his people to gather together in one place, and built defenses, by which to defend themselves against the robbers. He also called the people to repent and turn to the Lord, to build up their spiritual defenses, which act was so effective that the people actually listen and repent and obey. He also appointed captains to lead their armies, the leader of which went by the name of Gidgiddoni. He, together with Lachoneus, went on to win the war against the robbers, and bring peace to the land. (See .)
If any kings, judges, or other rulers among the Nephites followed Lachoneus II, they are not known to us.
