About wife, John Hycanus I / אשת יוחנן הורקנוס

http://jwa.org/encyclopedia/article/hasmonean-women

Wife of John Hyrcanus (d. 104 B.C.E.). We hear of this women only at the time of her husband’s death. We are informed that she was nominated by her husband to succeed him to the throne. However, this was not to be. Her son Judah Aristobulus seized the throne and starved his mother to death (Ant. 13:302). Yet she remains the precedent that allowed Shelamziyyon, her daughter-in-law, to indeed become queen a generation later.
