Mariamne III was a daughter of Aristobulus IV and Berenice. She had three brothers, Herod III, king of Chalkismarker, Herod Agrippa, king of Judea and Aristobulus V, and one sister, Herodias.

After the death of her father in 7 BCE, she was married to Antipater III, her uncle and eldest son of Herod. After Antipater's execution in 4 BCE, she may have been the first wife of another uncle, Herod Archelaus, ethnarch of Judeamarker.According to Josephus, the first wife of Herod Archelaus was named Mariamne; however, Josephus does not designate which Mariamne. Jewish Wars, Book II, Chapter 7:4; see http://www.interhack.net/projects/library/wars-jews/b2c7.html. The logical Mariamne of this generation to have been the first wife of Archelaus, principal heir of Herod the Great, was Mariamne III.
