Nabataean Kingdom, Rabbel II, 70 - 106 A.D.
Rabbel II was the last Nabataean king. Gamilath was Rabbel's sister and wife; however, "Sister" may have been an honorary title. He was given the title, "He who gives life and salvation to his people," perhaps for subjugating Arab tribes. Upon his death, Trajan annexed the kingdom. On 22 March 106, Nabataea was incorporated into the new province of Arabia Petraea, with Bosra as its capital.
