Definition of Tetrarch in the Bible



Tetrarch: strictly the ruler over the fourth part of a province; but the word denotes a ruler of a province generally (Matt. 14:1; Luke 3:1, 19; 9:7; Acts 13:1). Herod and Phasael, the sons of Antipater, were the first tetrarchs in Israel. Herod the tetrarch had the title of king (Matt. 14:9).
