VASHTI

Some information for those on withdrawal symptoms regarding her absence......

This took me many hours to research, but I think I have found the reason for her absence.......

Queen Vashti (Hebrew: ושתי‎‎, Koine Greek: Αστιν Astin) is the first wife of Persian King Ahasuerus in the Book of Esther, a book included in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) and read on the Jewish holiday of Purim. She is banished for her refusal to appear at the king's banquet to show her beauty as the king wished, and Esther is chosen to succeed her as queen. In the Midrash, Vashti is described as wicked and vain. She is viewed as an independent-minded heroine in feminist interpretations of the Purim story.
