Queen Vashti Deposed


Queen Vashti displays her independence V9 holding her own banquet for the women in the royal palace and refusing to come at the king's bidding.

Well we see that Queen Vashti was in disobedience to the king. It's almost like to show how disobedience looks like and what can be the outcome of it.
