A Heritage Costumes Exclusive.
Herod I, or Herod the Great (c. 75 – 4 BCE), was the king of Judea who ruled as a client of Rome. He has gained lasting infamy as the 'slaughterer of the innocents' as recounted in the New Testament’s book of Mathew. Herod was, though, a gifted administrator, and in his 33-year reign, he was responsible for many major building works which included a rebuilding of the Temple of Jerusalem, several aqueducts, and the massive fortress known as the Herodium. Historians have re-assessed his long-held negative reputation and now credit his reign as having had at least some positive effects on Jews and Judaism in his kingdom.
An exclusive piece in our Heritage Costumes Biblical and Ancient History collection of quality costume clothing, this children’s biblical Herod the Great costume is authentic to the attire worn by Herod I, King of Judea in this historically accurate costume set. To capture the traditional attire of these important biblical figures accurately, this costume includes a Satinique cape/cloak decorated with metallic trim, a full-length biblical caftan (or under robe, and a contrasting waist sash and gold plastic king's crown.
Herod's rule marked a new beginning in the history of Judea. Judea had been ruled autonomously by the Hasmonean kings from 140 BCE until 63 BCE.
