AthaliahAthaliah - "When Athaliah the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she rose and destroyed all the royal offspring.  But Jehosheba, the daughter of King Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah and stole him from among the king's sons who were being put to death, and placed him and his nurse in the bedroom.  So they hid him from Athaliah, and he was not put to death.  So he was hidden with her in the house of the Lord six years, while Athaliah was reigning over the land." (II Kings 11:1-3, NASB)

 

But after six years, the people rose up against Athaliah.

 

"And Jehoiada the priest commanded the captains of hundreds who were appointed over the army and said to them, 'Bring her out between the ranks, and whoever follows her put to death with the sword.'  For the priest said, 'Let her not be put to death in the house of the Lord.'  So they seized her, and when she arrived at the horses' entrance of the king's house, she was put to death there." (II Kings 11:15-16, NASB)
