Jez.e.bel \'jez-*-.bel\ n [Heb I-zebhel] 1: the wife of Ahab noted for her wickedness often not cap 2: an impudent, shameless, or abandoned woman

From the Internet:
Jezebel was the daughter of Ethbaal, the king of the Sidonians, and the wife of King Ahab of Israel (1 Kings 16:31) (see Kings of Israel and Judah). In glaring contrast to all of the good women of The Bible, Jezebel has gone down in Bible History as the very worst example of evil. She committed many atrocious crimes against those who were faithful and obedient to God, before experiencing an extremely gruesome end herself.
