What does 2 Chronicles 24:3 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 24:3

And Jehoiada took for him two wives
Not for himself; he had a wife who was aunt to King Joash, and he had sons who were concerned with him in anointing him, ( 2 Chronicles 22:11 ) ( 23:11 ) and was now upwards of one hundred years of age; but for the king, when he was at an age fit for marriage, he advised him to marry, and proposed wives to him, whom he thought would be agreeable; for, observing what mischief was done both in church and state through Jehoram's marrying Athaliah, he was desirous of preventing any such disagreeable marriage; and as the young king was in all things guided and directed by him, so he was in this; and no doubt they were good women he pitched upon, and proposed to the king; one of them was Jehoadan, ( 2 Chronicles 25:1 ) , but the name of the other we know not:

and he begat sons and daughters;
how many is not said, nor do we read of the names of any of them, but of Amaziah who succeeded him.
