About Mariamne Daughter of Joseph & Olympias

Herod of Chalcis (d. 48 AD), also known as Herod V, was a son of Aristobulus IV, and the grandson of Herod the Great, Roman client king of Judaea....His first wife was his cousin, Mariamne.[^ This Mariamne was the daughter of Joseph ben Joseph (nephew of Herod) and Herod's daughter Olympias, who was the sister of Herod - Archelaus and Herod Antipas. See Antiquites XVIII 5:4.] She bore him a son, who was also named Aristobulus, and who eventually became ruler of Chalcis. After Mariamne's death, he married his niece Berenice, with whom he had two sons, Berenicianus and Hyrcanus.
