HERODIAS (Gr. Herodias). A wicked granddaughter of Herod the Great who married her uncle Philip; but his brother Antipas saw her at Rome, desired her, and married her. When John the Baptist rebuked Herod Antipas (Luke 3:19-20), John was imprisoned (Matt 14:3-12; Mark 6:14-29). This did not satisfy Herodias, so by a sordid scheme she secured his death. Later Antipas was banished to Spain. Herodias accompanied him and died there.*
