    What is interesting is that at the time the Jews were sinning with the seuda, Hashem already saved them by killing Vashti and providing a savior for the future. We say in the Haggadah ‘הקב’ה מצילנו ‘מידם Hashem protects us through their hands. Also, Achashverus did not reward Mordechai on the spot but wrote it up for the future.

    She had to be executed and not banished or Achasheverus, when he regret it, could have reinstated her.

    “Were they approved first?“

    Well Reb eliezer saw my post so it was approved

    “I checked under the tables and under all the beds. I don’t see any delwted or spammed posts“

    You know you shouldn’t be looking for it when you’re drunk, and you shouldn’t be drinking Purim night

    My part to Reb Eliezer noted that the question seems to be whether Vashti was executed before she was 20 years old or after being 20.

    And I asked whether the age of responsibility for non-Jews is in fact 20 years of age. I think it is earlier for them.

    Joseph, the question was whether she has reached the age of 20 and she can be executed or wait another month because the year was not completed yet because it became meubar?

    My comment on the related issue of the proper place of Agadeta was also posted earlier but is now missing.

    My comment was if she was excommunicated Reb eliezer said why couldn’t achashverosh take her back

    So I answered maybe there was a clause that he couldn’t

    Reb Eliezer, even if Vashti was still 19 why would a drunk Achashveirus wait until she’s 20 before beheading her? Is 20 the age of responsibility for non-Jews under Jewish law or under Persian law? If under Jewish law, why would Achashveirus be adhering to Jewish law? Furthermore, under Jewish law the age of responsibility is 13/12.

    Joseph, don’t ask me any questions, ask Rav Yonasan Eubshutz see https://hebrewbooks.org/21708

    Reb Eliezer: What does Rav Yonason Eybshutz say regarding the point we’re discussing? (Your link goes to his Sefer but not any maare makom.)
