Fallen Angel who is by some accounts a good Angel. Shamsiel means “light of day” or “mighty son of God.”
As a fallen angel, Shamsiel is one of the Watchers, according to the book of Jubilees. In 1 Enoch he is a fallen angel who teaches the signs of the Sun. As a good angel, Shamsiel is a prince of paradise, guardian of Eden, and ruler of the fourth heaven. According to the Zohar, he is chief of 365 Legions of angels and is one of two aids to the archangel Uriel in battle. He crowns prayers and takes them to the fifth heaven. Shamsiel guided Moses when he visited paradise in the flesh.
