Granddaughter of Herod the Great and sister of Herod Agrippa I. Married

1. to half-uncle Herod, son of Mariamne II, third wife of Herod the Great (Mark 6: 17 calling him Philip is a mistake), by whom she had Salome (who did marry Philip); 2. to another half-uncle, Antipas, for which she was condemned by John the Baptist.

Hence her call (Mark 6: 17–29) for his execution.
