Judah Aristobulus I (Yehudah), 104 - 103 B.C.

John Hyrcanus directed that after his death his wife would rule and Aristobulus, the eldest of his five sons, was to become the high-priest. Aristobulus was not satisfied, so he cast his mother into prison and allowed her to starve. He was ruthless to the Pharisees. After only a year's reign he died of a painful illness.
