Historical background

JUDEA - Agrippa II


Agrippa II Herod Agrippa or is the grand-son of Aristobulus and great grand-son of Herod the Great son of Agrippa I,. Born in 30, he spent his teenage years in Rome. 48, thanks to the kindness of Claude, he succeeded his uncle, Herod, at the head of the kingdom of Chalcis. In 53, he exchanged territory with that of his great-uncle Philip (Tetrarch). Showered with honors under the reigns of Claudius and Nero, Superintendent of the temple, he displeased the Jews. During the uprising of Judea in 66, he joined the Roman cause and gave his support to Vespasian, commander in chief, and after the latter's departure for Rome, his son Titus. The sister of Agrippa II and Bernice fell in love with Titus, and their love was immortalized by Corneille and Racine. After the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70, he shared the rest of his time between Rome and its territories. The date of his death is uncertain, but it disappears from the story at the end of the reign of Domitian.
