- (fl. 10th cent BCE)Israelite princess and queen, daughter of Saul and wife of David. She helped her husband to escape from Saul's messengers, who had been sent to kill him. Subsequently she was given in marriage to Paltiel son of Laish, but was eventually restored to David. When David danced in front of the Ark, she rebuked him. She died childless (I Samuel 18-19; II Samuel 16; I Chronicles 15).
