What Became of Esther?
Are there any sources regarding what happened to Queen Esther after the traditional story ended? What became of her? Did she have children? Etc.? Thanks.
While we do not know a lot about what happened to Esther one thing that we do know is that she had a son, Darius, who became King Darius II. She brought him up to be favorable to the Jews and he eventually lifted the ban against the rebuilding of the Beit Hamikdash (Holy Temple), which led to the building of the Second Temple.
