Who Is Semiramis?

Ancient history tells an very interesting story about a mother and child which eventually becomes a major motif throughout most world cultures. The mother’s name is Semiramis and her child’s name was Tammuz. In this article, we will focus on the identity of the mother: Who is Semiramis?

According to the historian Eusebius, Semiramis was the wife of Nimrod. In the Sumerian language, her name is “Sammur-amat.”

According to less trustworthy traditions, Semiramis was Noah’s granddaughter, and both the mother and wife of Nimrod.

Who is Semiramis - The Mother and Wife of Nimrod

Semiramis – The Mother and Wife of Nimrod

According to various legends, Semiramis became pregnant after engaging in an adulterous affair while married to Nimrod. Around this same time, Nimrod dies an violent and untimely death. In an effort to retain power and to hide her misdeeds, Semiramis makes a most audacious claim. She publicly declares that upon Nimrod’s death he had been resurrected as the god of the Sun. As the Sun god, Nimrod used his sun rays to miraculously inseminate Semiramis with a child. This child was thus considered to be divinely conceived. The child’s name was Tammuz, which she claimed was the reincarnated Nimrod. (Thus, Semiramis was both Nimrod’s wife and mother.)

After the scattering that occurs at the Tower of Babel, this story of the miraculous conception of this child disseminated throughout the world and led to the rise of the various birth-death-rebirth cults that are littered through history. These mystery religions of future generations adopted different names for Semiramis and her child, Tammuz.

According to another tradition, Semiramis was the daughter of a goddess. She had mermaid-like features with a head of a woman and the body of a fish.

So exactly who is Semiramis?

Much speculation surrounds Semiramis throughout history. However, the image of a mother holding her child is pervasive throughout nearly every culture throughout history. This gives some credence to the import of Semiramis and her place in history.

    • Dutchie says:

      Eze Ugona, the Bible doesn’t mention cats either, that doesn’t mean they don’t exist!

    • Charles Low says:

      There is a book, by REV Alexander Hislop titled “The Two Babylons”. You should read it, because there is a LOT of good information in there.

    • Reason83 says:

      YHVH showed Ezekiel the people and priests participating in semiramis (easter) & tammuz worship, even in his temple.

      We’re told to “come out of babylon” from Genesis to Revelation.

      • Martin Horan says:

        You are correct to say we ought to come out of Babylon and we are warned throughout the Bible to do so.
        Pagan worship was going on in the Temple as you say. However, Semiramus is not personally named. She may have existed. If she did, all we have on her is from traditions that are not Scriptural. The first historical reference to her is by Eusebius who speculated that she was Nimrod’s wife. The Bible says nothing of Nimrod’s wife.
        Tammuz is mentioned but it’s the only time he is mentioned in the Bible [Exekiel 8:14] and all it gives is his name, which was that of a Phoenician idol.
        Much of what we have is from non-biblical sources and is from tradition and speculation. Most of it may well be true. But, as the Bible does not go into those details, I think that must be for a good reason. There again, as Proverbs teaches, “It is to the glory of a king to search out a matter.” But we have to use wisdom.

      hello.. it is important to know this because it is whence the idol worship originated….Nimrod means we will rebel…Babel means confusion through mixture. I believe that Ashteroth and many other Baal and idol worship all over the bible have their origin from Tammuz and Semiramis…..
      Its not confusion…

    The common saying “where there’s smoke there’s fire” couldn’t be more true here. The Mother and Child is found in all cultures, far preceding the birth of Christ, the Messiah. This Mother of the Babylonian Mystery Religion is depicted in many ‘so-called’ Christian churches. Even on the nations postage stamps. The worship of Semiramis and Tammuz continues to this day, but will end when Jesus Christ returns as King of all the earth. Then as it says in Joel, people will say “come let us go up to the Mountain of the Lord, to the House of Jacob’s God, He will teach us His ways, we will walk in His paths…..” God speed that day!

    Muchos serán purificados, emblanquecidos y refinados; los impíos procederán impíamente. Ninguno de los impíos comprenderá, PERO LOS ENTENDIDOS COMPRENDRÁN. Daniel 12:10

  4. Whatever had been passed down from Adam & Eve down through the Generations … many wanted Prophecies of the Learned to come to them, because they wanted to feel to be the Chosen People.

    Israel stood out, and still stands out.

    Jesus Christ who is from Israel was the only one who fulfilled all the yearnings of the Old and satisfied all the curiousities of the New.

    God Bless, because Jesus IS God.
