Best Answer

King Herod was born in 73 BCE in Judea. Herod's mother was an ethnic Arab and his father was an Edomite. When Rome made Herod a client king, many Jews resented it. Although Herod was raised as a Jew, his alliance with Rome led many of his Jewish subjects despise him. Many Jews considered Herod an "outsider" and a "half Jew".
