King Ahasuerus may have ruled Persia, but in the book of Esther’s first chapter, he loses his head because of alcohol, then loses his queen because of his impulse to exploit her beauty.

Nevertheless, the king’s foolish decisions fit into God’s sovereign plan to coronate a new queen and preserve His people during their exile.
