Herod Archelaus 22 BC - 18 AD
Herod Archelaus was the son of
Herod I the Great, who wanted him to become the next king of
Judaea upon his death.
Herod the Great died in 4 BC and
Archelaus was ready to roll. But Roman emperor
Augustus wouldn't let
him because the Jews hated Archelaus' guts.
In order to stress Judaea's dependency
on Rome, Augustus made Archelaus ethnarch of
Judaea, not king. As such, Archelaus ruled Judaea, Samaria,
and Idumaea for two years.

Archelaus. The Romans voted for early retirement and exiled Archelaus to Gaul.
