Summary "Agrippa II was the last descendant of Herod the Great to rule in the southern Levant, as a client king of Rome. On the throne for around 47 years, he was the last monarch to assume responsibility for the maintenance and management for the Temple in Jerusalem, and ultimately lived to see its destruction after the Jewish War. This study documents his life from a childhood spent at the imperial court in Rome and rise to the position of client king of Rome under Claudius and Nero. It examines his activities amid the growing tensions between the Jews and Roman officials that culminated in the Jewish War, and also examines his relationship with the historian Josephus. This is first and only comprehensive biography of Agrippa II in any language"-- Provided by publisher
