A map illustrating the geopolitical situation in the Levant after Herod the Great's death (an ambitious ruler appointed as the King of Judea by the Roman Senate in 37 BCE ). The Herodian Tetrarchy, established by Herod the Great's will, divided the Levant into four distinct regions, each governed by one of his sons or relatives. This system aimed to maintain stability in the region following Herod's death. During the era of the Herodian Tetrarchy, the Roman Empire increased its territorial presence and influence within the Levant, marking a significant paradigm shift in regional power dynamics, ultimately resulting in the erosion of the Herodian dynasty and imposition of direct Roman rule.
