Character description

(Biblical figure) Ahasuerus (/əˌhæzjuˈɪərəs/ ə-HAZ-yoo-EER-əs; Hebrew: אֲחַשְׁוֵרוֹשׁ, Modern: ʼAḥašvērōš, Tiberian: ʼAẖašwērōš, commonly Achashverosh; Koine Greek: Ασουηρος, romanized: Asouēros, in the Septuagint; Latin: Assuerus in the Vulgate) is a name used several times in the Hebrew Bible, as well as related legends and Apocrypha. This name (or title) is applied in the Hebrew Scriptures to three rulers. The same name is also applied uncertainly to a Babylonian official (or Median king) noted in the Book of Tobit. Ahasuerus is given as the name of the King of Persia in the Book of Esther. He is most often identified as Xerxes I.
