  Queen Alexandra
Alexandra, and her two sons, here appear helplessly dependent on the king, in contrast with the schemer who had been wife of Aristobulus I. She is sixty-four years old at this time.

In the mean time, Alexandra fell sick, and Aristobulus, her younger son, took hold of this opportunity, with his domestics, of which he had a great many, who were all of them his friends, on account of the warmth of their youth, and got possession of all the fortresses.
