History
The biblical books of Samuel report that Moab had been conquered by David and was retained in the territories of Solomon (d. 931 B.C.E). The Mesha Stele, also known as the Moabite Stone, indicates that it was still under the dominion of Israelite Kings based at Samaria a century later.

Mesha appears to have fought successfully for the freedom of Moab from Israel as the Moabite Stone, which dates from c.850 B.C.E, indicates. 2 Kings 3:4 states that "King Mesha of Moab was a sheep breeder, who used to deliver to the king of Israel one hundred thousand lambs, and the wool of one hundred thousand rams", but also that he later rebelled against Jehoram, then king of the Northern Kingdom of Israel.
 
 
Mesha Stele-Moabite Stone
The Mesha Stele (popularized in the 19th century as the "Moabite Stone") is a black basalt stone, bearing an inscription by the 9th century BC Moabite King Mesha, discovered in 1868. The inscription of 34 lines, the most extensive inscription ever recovered from ancient Palestine, was written in Hebrew-Phoenician characters. It was set up by Mesha, about 850 BC, as a record and memorial of his victories in his revolt against Israel, which he undertook after the death of his overlord, Ahab.

The Moabite Stone is 124 cm high and 71 cm wide and deep, and rounded at the top. It was discovered at the ancient Dibon now Dhiban, Jordan, in August 1868, by Rev. F. A. Klein, a German missionary in Jerusalem. The stele now resides in the Louvre museum in France.

Translation of the Moabite Stone
From Ancient Near East - Volume I - ANET

"I am Mesha, son of Chemosh, King of Moab the Dibonite my father had reigned over Moab thirty years. As for Omri, King of Israel, he humbled Moab many years, for Chemosh was angry at his land"

Omri and Mesha

The identifications of the biblical Mesha, King of Moab, and of the biblical Omri, King of the northern kingdom of Israel, in the Mesha Stele are generally accepted by the scholarly community, especially because what is said about them in the narrative of the Mesha Stele agrees well with the narrative in the biblical books of Kings and Chronicles.
