Tanach compares the wicked King Menashe of Judah to the equally wicked King Achav of Israel (II Kings 21:3) - indeed, the Gemara (Sanhedrin 102b-103a) derives a couple of facts about him from this comparison.
Their reigns were separated by 185 years: Achav was killed in battle in 3043, Menashe's reign began in 3228.
