(4th century BCE) King of Persia, husband of Vashti and Esther. At the advice of his minister Haman, he issued a decree that all Jews should be killed. At Esther's insistence, he issued a second decree, allowing the Jews to defend themselves, rendering the first decree ineffective, as recorded in the Scroll of Esther which is read every year on Purim.
