Simon Boethus is executed by Herod the Great in 19 BC. Simon Boethus was the High Priest who reigned in the year of Joseph and Mary’s betrothal. He was the 60th High Priest. Herod had also executed Cleopatra of Jerusalem’s first husband Prince Jacob ben Matthan who was in line to the Davidic throne. It was Herod the Great who arranged for her marriage to High Priest Simon IV Boethus (served 23 BC – 19 BC). Herod subsequently married her for her political status. It is believed she was the daughter in utero of Cleopatra VII of Jerusalem when Julius Caesar was assassinated.
