Herod Archelaus was a son of King Herod the Great, a brother to Herod Antipas, and half-brother to Herod Philip. His mother was Malthace. Archelaus lived from about 23 BC to about 18 AD. After the reign of his father, he became ethnarch of Judah (or Judea), as well as Samaria, which is a part of the ancient land of Israel, and Edom, which also was known as Idumea.

Much of what we know of Herod Archelaus is handed down to us from Josephus, the Jewish historian who lived during the first century. Archelaus ruled from about 4 BC until about 6 AD.
