Additional Links

Daughter of Aristobulus, son of Herod the Great and Mariamne, descendant of the Machabees. She entered into an adulterous union with Herod Antipas, Tetrarch of Galilee, who was thereupon rebuked by John the Baptist. Her hatred aroused, she, by the dance of her daughter Salome, brought about the death of the saint. She preferred a life of exile with Antipas at Lyons, Gaul, to one of splendor in the palace of her brother, Agrippa.
