The Queen of Heaven (Heb: מְלֶכֶת הַשָּׁמַיִם meleketh hashamayim) was a pagan goddess worshiped in Judah during and following the corrupt reign of King Manasseh (696-642 BC). Although King Josiah (640-609 BC), his grandson, had attempted religious reforms, the prophet Jeremiah preached against the worship of this goddess that was popular among the women of the southern kingdom.
