Of "the queen of Sheba," mention is made 1 Kings 10:1-2 , &c; 2 Chronicles 9:1-2 , &c; Matthew 12:42 ; Luke 11:31 . She is called "queen of the south," and was, according to some, a queen of Arabia; and, according to others, a queen of Ethiopia. Josephus says, that Sheba was the ancient name of the city of Meroe, before Cambyses gave it that of his sister; and that it was from thence the queen came of whom we are speaking. This opinion has much prevailed. The Abyssinians at this day, maintain, that this princess was of their country, and that her posterity reigned there a long time. They preserve a catalogue of them, their names and successions.
