Drusilla was the youngest daughter of Herod Agrippa I, the king who persecuted Peter and ordered the beheading of James the Apostle. Drusilla was also the wife of the Roman procurator Felix,[1] who presided over the trial of Paul.

Drusilla reportedly listened with great interest as Paul explained his faith in a private hearing before Felix.

Drusilla was sister of Agrippa II, and she also named her son Agrippa. Her mother's name was Cypros.

Drusilla and her son died together in one of the eruptions of Vesuvius.[2]
