* King Agrippa.
King Agrippa was the son of Herod Agrippa; who upon the death
of his uncle Herod, king of Chalcis, A.D. 28, succeeded to his
dominions, by the favour of the emperor Claudius. Four years
afterwards, Claudius removed him from that kingdom to a larger
one; giving him the tetrarchy of Philip, that of Lysanias, and
the province which Varus governed. Nero afterwards added
Julias in Peraea, Tarichaea, and Tiberias. Claudius gave him
the power of appointing the high priest among the Jews; and
instances of his exercising this power may be seen in
Josephus. He was strongly attached to the Romans, and did
every thing in his power to prevent the Jews from rebelling;
and when he could not prevail, he united his troops to those
of Titus, and assisted at the siege of Jerusalem. After the
ruin of his country, he retired with his sister Berenice to
Rome where he died, aged 70, about A.D. 90.
