Tulo ka hari?

The famous “three kings” from the Biblical birth of Christ narrative weren’t:

1. Three in number (the number isn’t mentioned at all).
2. Kings (they were “wise” men) – this probably comes from Psalm 71:11 (72:11 in protestant bibles): “And all kings of the earth shall adore him: all nations shall serve him.”
3. Trotting about on camels.

The actual narrative (Matthew 2:1–2) merely says: “When Jesus therefore was born in Bethlehem of Juda, in the days of king Herod, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem.” It says a little later that they offered Him gifts of “gold, frankincense, and myrrh” – but that is about as specific as it gets. --
...than to speak out and remove all doubt." - Abraham Lincoln

so when did the term "three kings" come about, and who started it?
Republic Act 8485 (Animal Welfare Act of 1998, Philippines), as amended and strengthened by House  Bill 6893 of 2013--- violation means a maximum of P250,000 fine with a corresponding three-year jail term and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment
