daughter of Ahab

2 Chronicles 21:6

21:6 daughter of Ahab. This daughter of Ahab was Athaliah, the daughter of Jezebel, the Phoenician princess who introduced Baalism into Israel. Athaliah, in turn, introduced it into Judah as the wife of King Jehoram. Jehoram slew all his younger brothers upon becoming king (II Chronicles 21:4), no doubt on the instigation of Athaliah, thus opening the way for her later to usurp the crown for herself (II Chronicles 22:10, 12).
