Samson: Last of the judges of the ancient Israelites mentioned in the Book of Judges
Samson born c. 1200 BC, died c. 1160 BC, was the last of the judges of the ancient Israelites mentioned in the Book of Judges in the Hebrew Bible and one of the last of the leaders who "judged" Israel before the institution of the monarchy. He is sometimes considered to be an Israelite version of the popular Near Eastern folk hero also embodied by the Sumerian Enkidu and the Greek Heracles.
