About Queen Esther of Persia

While biblical sources explain that indeed he was her uncle and adoptive parent, Talmudic source (Babylonian Talmud, Megila 13a.) add the he was ALSO her husband. So the tree was probable reflecting that connection. This is "derived" from the end of the quote that Henn mentioned: "TOOK her for his own DAUGHTER." One does not "take" a daughter. In the context of male-female relations this verb indicates "taking in marriage", and the word for "daughter" is one minor letter different than "home". Bet-Taf vs. Bet-Yud-Taf.

Esther's tomb joins Iranian National Heritage List.

On December 9, 2008, Iranian news outlets reported that the tomb of Mordechai and Esther, would now be under official government protection and responsibility.

The mausoleum housing the shrine of Mordechai and Esther consists of a simple brick structure crowned with a dome which was built some five to seven centuries ago over the underground gravesites. It is located in the northwestern Iranian city of Hamadan, which is about 335 kilometers west of the capital, Tehran. According to tradition, Hamadan is believed to be the site of the city of Shushan, which played such a central role in the events described in the Book of Esther.

Various travelers down through the ages took note of the site, with the first having been Benjamin of Tudela, the famed 12th century Jewish explorer.

Interestingly, there is a competing tradition which identifies the traditional burial place of Queen Esther and Mordechai as being on the outskirts of the village of Baram, in the upper Galilee, near Safed. As early as 1215, Rabbi Menachem Ha-Hevroni wrote that while visiting the Galilee, he came across the tomb of Queen Esther, "who, during her lifetime, had instructed her son Cyrus to bring her there [for burial]". Later pilgrims mentioned the site, and noted that special celebrations were held there on Shushan Purim.
