Bathsheba

According to the Hebrew Bible, Bathsheba was the wife of Uriah the Hittite and later of David, king of the United Kingdom of Israel and Judah.

Bathsheba was a daughter of Eliam, one of David's "thirty"; Eliam was the son of Ahitophel, one of David's chief advisors. Ahitophel was from Giloh, a city of Judah, and thus Bathsheba was from David's own tribe and the granddaughter of one of David's closest advisors." She was the mother of Solomon, who succeeded David as king, making her the Queen Mother.
