Esther saves the day
Institution: National Library of Israel, Jerusalem. The Babylonian Rabbis cast Vashti in a negative light. In contrast, their counterparts in Erez Israel portrayed her in a positive manner. Vashti came to an end when Memucan, one of the seven eunuchs of King Ahasuerus, counseled the king to depose Vashti. In the midrashic depiction, when Ahasuerus grew sober, he regretted what he had done. He recalled Vashti and her proper behavior, and he also remembered how he had improperly condemned her. The Rabbis state that Vashti was one of the four women who were enthroned, two of whom ruled over Israel Jezebel and Athaliah and two over other peoples the heathen Semiramis and Vashti Esther Rabbah
Though being a queen sounds like an amazing life, it held little appeal for Esther. King Ahasuerus had the former Queen Vashti killed when she refused to parade around naked for him and his drunken friends. When he went looking for a new queen, Esther hid away with the help of her cousin Mordechai. She had to give herself up physically, and also had to hide the fact that she was Jewish.
