Daf Hashavua
Nazir 19b

מעשה בהילני המלכה

Hayleni Hamalka was married to her brother  King Munbaz (1st). Their eldest son was also named Munbaz (2nd) . While she was pregnant with another child, Hayleni and Munbaz both heard a voice telling them they will have a special child who will become a great and beloved king. The child was named “Yazatish”. According to the Midrash his name was Bezutus (Breishis Rabah  46:10) Yazatish was their favourite child. Munbaz the son  became a temporary king after his  father Munbaz died. Yazatish lived in a different country. When he returned, his brother Munbaz abdicated the throne  and handed it over to his brother. They converted to Judaism (according to Rashi Bava Basra 11a,  they were Jewish, Chashmanoim). Because he converted he had many enemies and fought many wars. He fought against the Persians. While he was away Hayleni made a Neder if her son will return safely alive she will move to Eretz Yisroel. The Mishna says she promised to  become a Nezirah for seven years. The Mishna does say she went to Eretz Yisroel at the end of the seven years of Neziros(no mention of making such a Neder)   The Gemoro (Bava Basra 11a) says when Hayleni and her son King Munbaz came to Eretz Yisroel they both spent most of their money feeding the poor. King Yazatish too, sent money to Eretz Yisroel for the poor.

Based on Yosifin, S.HaYuchsin & Seder Hadoros.
