About Shusandukht of Jewish Exile

Šošanduxt (also spelled Shoshandukht) was the daughter of the Jewish Exilarch (possibly Kahana I or his father Abba ben Ukba; this tree assumes Kahana I). [Exilarch (Hebrew: ראש גלות Rosh Galut, Aramaic: ריש גלותא Reish Galuta, or Rash Galutha: lit. "head of the exile", Greek: Æchmalotarcha) refers to the leaders of the Diaspora Jewish community following the deportation of the population of Judah into Babylonian exile after the destruction of the kingdom of Judah.]
