Following the  Batsheva-KIng David episode, Batsheva all but disappears in the Early Prophets, as King David’s monarchy is beset by attempted coups  from his sons. A decade later, Amnon and Avshalom are dead, and on his deathbed, King David is poised to name Solomon, a son with  Batsheva, as King. As another son, Adoniyahu, attempts his coup, to be crowned King, Batsheva, the Queen, a much less studied narrative, once again takes center stage. We will study the classic commentaries, with relevant midrashic and Talmudic sources to try to understand this complicated and fascinating woman.
