Does anyone have sources to validate Berenike's birth date, entered as 17 BCE?

Wagner, Sir Anthony Richard; ‘Pedigree and Progress: Essays in the Genealogical Interpretation of History’ sets it as c 35 BCE.

Bernice, Princess of Judaea is my 65th great grandmother.

Just change it. As it is now it is meaningless that she is listed getting 5 children before she dies at the age of 12 ;-)

The birth dates on the children should be checked as well.

She is my 60th great grandmother.

Done, Bjorn.
Elvin and Gail - please watch over the accuracy of your great granny's sources for all of us :-)

Inserted a minus in front of the year you inserted, but after looking at the timeline and checking some sources I changed it to -33. She got married around 17/18 BC if the age of around 15.

Thanks Bjorn. It's always best to be born before not after your grandchildren :-)
