Herod Archelaus

(fl. 1st cent BCE-1st cent CE)
   Isra-elite, ruler of Judea (4 BCE-6 CE). He was a son of Herod the Great and under Herod's will he was appointed king. When he went to Rome to ratify this appointment, the Jewish community protested. The emperor, Augustus, abolished the title of king, but confirmed him as ruler of Judea, Idumea and Sumeria. He was later removed from office and exiled to Gaul.
