Background

Septimia Zenobia (Palmyrene:  Btzby/Bat-Zabbai; c. 240 – c. 274 AD) was a third-century queen of the Palmyrene Empire in Syria best known for conquering Southern Anatolia, Syria and Egypt and is also known for challenging Rome's power in the east.

In 270, Zenobia launched an invasion which brought most of the Roman East under her sway and culminated with the annexation of Egypt. By mid-271 her realm extended from Ancyra, central Anatolia, to southern Egypt, although she remained nominally subordinate to Rome. However, in reaction to the campaign of the Roman emperor Aurelian in 272, Zenobia declared her son emperor and assumed the title of empress (declaring Palmyra's secession from Rome).

Between 272-273, the new Roman Emperor, Aurelian, launched a campaign against Zenobia and after some heavy fighting, finally captured the great city of Palmyra and put an end to the Palmyrene Empire.
