Profile of Jezebel, a Phoenician princess in the 9th century B.C., who rose to infamy as the queen of Israel. As a foreigner, a woman and one who worshipped foreign gods, Jezebel was a triple threat to the people of influence in Israel. From the moment of her arrival in Israel, her independence, aggressiveness and desire for power earned her archenemies dedicated to her overthrow. After surviving economic and political turmoil, she finally met her match with Elijah, one of Israel's most revered prophets. Ultimately, she was murdered, leaving behind a legacy that remains today.
