After Jacob’s family settled in the Canaanite city of Shechem, Leah’s daughter Dinah decided to explore the city. She went on her own into the city to meet other young women, but when Shechem, prince of the country, saw her, he fell in love with her. He brought her to the palace and had his way with her. He then asked his father to get her for his wife.
