About Phasaelis of Nabataea

Aretas IV Philopatris was the King of the Nabataeans from roughly 9 BC to AD 40... His daughter Phasaelis married Herod Antipas, otherwise known as Herod the Tetrarch. When Herod divorced Phasaelis to take his brother's wife Herodias, mother of Salome, in AD 26, Phasaelis fled to her father. Aretas IV invaded Herod's holdings, defeated his army[1] and captured territories along the West Bank of the Jordan River, including the areas around Qumran[citation needed].
