One final source

I’ve been meaning to post this, but it slipped my mind. I found out that the king in the Old Testament book of Esther was actually Xerxes. Some Bibles have changed the name to reflect the discovery, although most still say King Ahaseurus, which was apparently what he was called by the Jews. His dismissal of Queen Vashti is supposed to have occurred just before he went to war against Greece.
