Born a Phoenician princess in the 9th century B-C-E, Jezebel rose to infamy as the Queen of Israel. Being a foreigner, a woman, and one who worshipped foreign gods made Jezebel a triple threat. From the moment of her arrival in Israel, her independence, aggressiveness, and desire for power earned her archenemies. After surviving economic and political turmoil, she finally met her match with Elijah, one of Israel's most revered prophets. Ultimately, she was murdered, leaving behind a legacy that remains today.
