Bathsheba, also known as Bathshua, is a character that appears in the Hebrew Bible (2 Samuel 11, 12; 1 Kings 1, 2). She is known to be Eliam’s daughter. Bathsheba was initially the wife of Uriah, who was a captain in the army of Israel’s King David. King David once saw Bathsheba bathing on her terrace. He summoned her to his palace, had sex with her, and got her pregnant. Uriah was killed in battle, and David married Bathsheba. Bathsheba and David’s second son, Solomon, later became the king of Israel. It was Bathsheba who secured Solomon’s succession to the throne and became a powerful female figure in the kingdom. There are multiple interpretations of Bathsheba’s story across various scriptures and critical writings of scholars. Bathsheba has also been depicted in numerous movies, books, and songs.
