Yahweh struck the king so that he was a leper to the day of his death, and he lived in a separate house. Jotham the king’s son was over the household, judging the people of the land. Bible

“Yahweh struck the king so that he was a leper.” The reason is covered in 2 Chronicles 26:16-21.

“over the household.” That is, ruling over the palace and royal family. The fact that Jothan was judging the people of the land shows he was acting as king.
