Son of Cush, builder of cities, ruler of Mesopotamia, nemesis of Abraham, father of Hunor and Magor patriarchs of the Huns and Magyars as well as the people of Subartu, and who knows what else.
Was he also an early and important king in Egypt???
From this site:
(I'll copy the important text here 'cause it's one of those spooky 'white text on black' sites that hurts my eyes …)
It is also not a surprise that the first king of united Egypt was named "Nar-mer", one of the god-names of Horus, which is also very similar to Nimrod. The symbol of Narmer was that of a catfish surmounting a chisel. Though this symbol seems curious at first, it may be an important clue to the origin of Osiris and an ancient line of divine kings who claimed descent from him. There is a family in Europe named the Merovingians who have descended from a 5th-century king who claimed to have been the offspring of a human mother and a mysterious "beast from the sea": "the mysterious sea beast — the Bistea Neptunis — as symbolically defined in the Merovingian ancestry. The relevant sea-lord was King Pallas, a god of old Arcadia…. The immortal sea-lord was said to be 'ever-incarnate in a dynasty of ancient kings' whose symbol was a fish."40 Thus, the Egyptian hieroglyphics for catfish and chisel that make up Narmer's name may refer to the fact that Narmer was of divine parentage, and the chisel may refer to the fact that he was known as a cutter of stone and, therefore, a builder of cities. Thus, like Nimrod, Narmer was a semi-divine king known for building cities. This makes sense, as Narmer was the king that had unified upper and lower Egypt around 3200 b.c., forming the first nation of the ancient world. Though probably not the king who inspired the legend of Osiris, Narmer was almost certainly of the divine lineage of Osiris, and may well have been the source of the name "Nimrod".
I got curious about this after reading ancient Egypt described as "Osiria", i.e., the land civilized by Osiris. Osiria sure looks a lot like "Assyria" to me.
My ears will be pricked for more on this possibility, 'cause it would blow the lid off of everything (for me at least).
