https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biblical_judges
"Biblical scholar Kenneth Kitchen argues that, from the conquest of Canaan by Joshua until the formation of the first Kingdom of Israel and Judah (ca. 11501025 BC)"
...
"If "all the figures given in Judges (years of oppression, years the judges led Israel, years of peace achieved by the judges) are treated as consecutive, then the total duration of the events described in Judges is 410 years."
****
So the biblical text say 410 years, and Kitchen says 125 years for this period.

Here is another schollar's opinion, trying to reduce this 410 year period:
http://www.bible.ca/archeology/bible-archeology-exodus-route-date-chronology-of-judges.htm

An undisclosed idea... what if the 410 years are really 410 seasons? And something got lost in translation? Then 410/4=102 years, and would conform with Kitchen.
*****
So the timeframe in discussion is Between the death of Joshua and the reign of David.

1159 ARAM [27] [Moses]
1136 AMMINADAB [28] [Joshua]
*1113 NAASON [29]
*1090 SALMON [30]
*1067 BOAZ [31]
*1044 OBED [32]
*1021 JESSE [33]
998 David

I count 5 generations from the genealogy for this time frame. 5x23= 115 years. So I'm in agreement with Kitchen on this reduced timeframe.
