Zenobia (240 – c. 274) was a 3rd-century Queen of the Palmyrene Empire in Roman Syria. She led a famous revolt against the Roman Empire. BY 269 she had conquered Egypt, and expelled the Roman prefect, which she ruled over until 274, when she was defeated and taken as a hostage to Rome by Emperor Aurelian.— Excerpted from Zenobia on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
