  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Gaal 
  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  (Judg. 
  9:26-46).  We  hear  no  more  of  him  after  this  battle.
