About Mariamne ., I, Princess of Judaea
Wagner, Sir Anthony Richard; ‘Pedigree and Progress: Essays in the Genealogical Interpretation of History’ has Mariamne, Princess of Judaea b 34 to Herod Agrippa I & Cypros
Regarding the marriage/ partnership with Gaius Julius Archelaus Antiochus Epiphanes of Commagene (b circa 38 to Antiochus IV Epiphanes, King of Commagene and Iotape Philadelphus)
which one source in Wikipedia as well as Wagner – says resulted in the birth of a daughter: Berenike of Commagene (b after 50), I can find the following contradictory sources on the net:
- >“Epiphanes was betrothed in 43/44 to the princess Drusilla, who was a daughter of Judean King Agrippa I. Agrippa thought that Epiphanes would embrace the religion Judaism and Jewish customs. However, Epiphanes never married Drusilla because he refused to adopt the customs and religion of the Jews. The marriage between Epiphanes and Drusilla had not been contracted on the death of Agrippa I. Later Epiphanes was betrothed to Drusilla’s sister Mariamne. In 49/50, the brother of Mariamne and Drusilla, King Agrippa II had cancelled the wedding between Epiphanes and Mariamne, because again Epiphanes refused to adopt the customs and religion of the Jews.
- >“Mariamne (born 34) was a daughter of King Herod Agrippa I. She was betrothed by her father to Gaius Julius Archelaus Antiochus Epiphanes, first son of King Antiochus IV of Commagene, but this marriage had not yet been enacted upon her father's death. Her brother Agrippa II enacted the marriage once he had been made tetrarch in around 49/50. From which marriage was derived a daughter, whose name was Berenice.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariamne_(daughter_of_Herod_Agrippa_I) this article is unreferenced.
- >Berenice was the daughter of Mariamne, (daughter of Herod Agrippa I), and Julius Archealus. She was born sometime after 50 AD. After her parents had divorced, she lived with her mother in Alexandria.
