Herod Agrippa I (or simply Herod Agrippa), a grandson of Herod the Great, was the person who beheaded the Apostle James and had Peter arrested. God, soon after these acts, sent the angel of the Lord to kill him (Acts 12).

Herod Agrippa II, a great grandson of Herod the Great, is made tetrarch of Chalcis in 48 A.D. Although forced to give up Chalcis in 53, he is made king of Batanea, Trachonitis and other areas by Emperor Claudius.

Although Apostle Paul's request to have Caesar hear his case is approved, he is allowed to explain his actions before Agrippa II and his sister Bernice (Acts 25 - 26).
