Herod Antipas, Tetrarch of Galilee and Perea, 4 B.C. - 40 A.D.
When King Herod the Great died, his will designated Antipas to succeed him. The rule of Judaea was, however, at the whim of Augustus, emperor of Rome. Antipas and his brothers Archelaus and Philip, all three raised in Rome, were each given a part of the kingdom. Antipas was given the title Tetrarch and rule of Galilee, Peraea, and Jewish Trans-Jordan.
