DRUSILLA . The third wife of the procurator Felix ( Acts 24:24 ). She was the youngest daughter of Herod Agrippa I., and is said to have been persuaded by one Simon (? Simon Magus) to desert her first husband, Azizus king of Emesa, for Felix. She cannot have been more than 16 years of age when she listened to St. Paul reasoning on ‘righteousness and temperance and the judgment to come’ ( Acts 24:25 ).
