Esther, the main character in the story contained in the biblical book of Esther, is a young Jewish maiden who rises to fame, wealth, and glory in ancient Persia during the days of King Ahasuerus (Xerxes). Her beauty sets her apart from other young women in the king's harem, and the king chooses her to be his queen. From this privileged position, Esther has an opportunity to save the Jewish community in Persia from the machinations of the king's evil grand vizier. Her success is celebrated each year in the joyous Jewish festival of Purim.
