Queen Athaliah of Judah was the only woman to rule over either the Kingdom of Israel or Judah. She was the seventh sovereign over Judah, ruling from 841 to 835 B.C.
Athaliah, the daughter of Israel's King Ahab and Jezebel, married Jehoram who became Judah's king from 853 to 841. After his death, their son Ahaziah ruled only for one year. When Ahaziah died, she moved to rule the kingdom as sole dictator.
Athaliah quickly had all of King David's descendants murdered except for one, Joash, who as a baby was hid from her (2Kings 11). She also allowed her sons to pillage Jerusalem's temple and offer its sacred objects to the pagan false god Baal (2Chronicles 24:7).
Known as a devilish monarch (2Chronicles 24:7), she is one of only ten Biblical women who caused the death of other people. She, along with her mother Jezebel, also shares the bloody distinction of being the only women to initiate a mass murder in Scripture.
