      Herod was listed as having ten marriages and fifteen children on this web page showing his family tree:

      I recognized the sons Archelaus, Phillip, and Antipas as sons who survived. I imagine there were also numerous persons from his extended family.

      Dear Jim,
      At the end of the Hebrew article at www.haaretz.co.il this morning it says that Herod killed most of his sons due to suspicion they were undercutting him. And yet you have here from Josephus:
      Around the bier were Herod’s sons and a large group of his relatives
      ???

      Concerning, of course, Herod's tomb. In part:

      Herodium is the most outstanding among King Herod’s building projects.
      This is the only site that carries his name and the site where he chose
      to be buried and to memorialize himself -- all of this with the
      integration of a huge, unique palace at the fringe of the desert, said
      Prof. Netzer. Therefore, he said, the exposure of his tomb becomes the
      climax of this site’s research.

      The approach to the burial site - which has been described by the
      archaeologists involved as one of the most striking finds in Israel in
      recent years - was via a monumental flight of stairs (6.5 meters wide)
      leading to the hillside that were especially constructed for the funeral
      procession.

      The full story:
