About Hananiah, 5th Exilarch

Hananiah was the son of Zorobabel by his third wife. The brother by the same wife was Meshullam who is numbered 4th in the Exilarch list. His sister in the same parentage is Shelomith, wife of Elnathan, Governor of Judea 510-490 BCE. That marriage produced another Davidic lineage.

1 Chronicles 3:19-20

New International Version (NIV)

19: The sons of Pedaiah: Zerubbabel and Shimei.

The sons of Zerubbabel: Meshullam and Hananiah. Shelomith was their sister.

20: There were also five others: Hashubah, Ohel, Berekiah, Hasadiah and Jushab-Hesed.
