Peter, you are confusing Aristobulus husband of Salome with the earlier Aristobulus brother-in-law of Herod the Great (who died BC not AD). This problem came up in a previous thread:

Aristobulus the brother-in-law of Herod the Great never became king. He was appointed High Priest, but according to Josephus, Herod had him murdered. Aristobulus husband of the "dancer" Salome did become a king in Chalcis and later in Armenia. He is generally believed to have died circa 63 AD. However, some sources seem to combine his reign with that of his son, also called Aristobulus, which ended circa 92 AD.
