Antipas divorced his first wife Phasaelis, the daughter of King Aretas IV of Nabatea , in favor of Herodias. According to biblical scholars, the Gospel of Matthew  and the Gospel of Luke ,  it was this proposed marriage which John the Baptist publicly criticized. Besides provoking his conflict with the Baptist, the tetrarch's divorce added a personal grievance to previous disputes with Aretas over territory on the border of Perea and Nabatea. The result was a war that proved disastrous for Antipas; a Roman counter-offensive was ordered by Tiberius, but abandoned upon that emperor's death in 37 .. In 39 . Antipas was accused by his nephew Agrippa I of conspiracy against the new Roman emperor Caligula , who sent him into exile in Gaul . Accompanied there by Herodias, he died at an unknown date.
Prehaps the biggest hope for the future of female representation is that the stars of these films and tv shows are often women who stand as strong role models in their own right. The survey aimed to find out which stars of TV and Film were the best role models for women. Unsurprisingly, Emma Watson was number 1 as the best female role model, most likely due to her work for the UN on gender equality as well as starring as the elected best female film character for half her life. Some older generation women including Meryl Streep, Judi Dench and Helen Mirren also made the top 10. Others on the list include Melissa McCarthy, Miranda Hart and Ellen DeGeneres. These inspiring results prove that female role models do not have to be young, thin and serve a patriarchal purpose but just have to be themselves and not conform to stereotype.
