Aristobulus III

(d. 35 BCE)
   Hasmonean high priest. At the time he was due to become high priest, Herod the Great appointed Hananel in his place. Aristobulus' mother, Alexandra (daughter of Hyrcanus II) asked Cleopatra to intercede for him with Herod. Hananel was subsequently dismissed and Aristobulus appointed in his place. He was later drowned in the baths at Jericho by Herod's soldiers.
