    ALEXANDER JANNAEUS

    (d. 76 bc), brother and successor of Aristobulus I, king from 103 to 76 bc. He became king and high priest through marriage to Aristobulus's widow, and he followed the policies of John Hyrcanus in conquering and Judaizing surrounding territories, eventually extending the boundaries of the Hasmonaean kingdom to their farthest extent. Reportedly, however, he was dictatorial and ruthless, and his reign was marked by intrigues and internal strife. He was killed during a siege of a Greek city.
