Nimrod

Local nameNimród
LocationPilisszántó, Hungary

Nimrod, a biblical figure described as a king in the land of Shinar, was, according to the Book of Genesis and Books of Chronicles, the son of Cush, the grandson of Ham and great-grandson of Noah. The Bible states that he was "a mighty hunter before the Lord ... began to be mighty in the earth". Extra-biblical traditions associating him with the Tower of Babel led to his reputation as a king who was rebellious against God.

Attempts to match Nimrod with historically attested figures have failed. Nimrod may not represent any one personage known to history and various authors have identified him with several real and fictional figures of Mesopotamian antiquity, including the Mesopotamian god Ninurta or a conflation of two Akkadian kings Sargon and his grandson Naram-Sin, and Tukulti-Ninurta I.
