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.

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

        The bible didn’t mention UFOs, so does that mean they exist also? Your logic is not consistent. It’s like saying an elephant has large ears then seeing a hare an saying it’s an elephant.


        • January 8, 2017 @ 2:42 pm Sarah

          Actually, the Bible does mention UFO’s

      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.

      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.


      • February 21, 2014 @ 8:03 am Martin Horan

        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.

          Many people will miss heaven because they are foolishly scriptural/ biblical; many scientific discovery; archeological findings had shown that the source of scriptural document lies in classified MSS of the ancient; most Christians today live in the past when anything not found in the bible must not be taken to be true


    • February 16, 2014 @ 7:01 am alois

      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…


      • February 16, 2014 @ 7:02 am alois

        when we are taught this things…

      Actually scripture does mention Semiramis, possibly many time. She is mentioned as the queen of heaven in Jeremiah 44:17-25. She is very possibly the same entity, that was worshiped as Ashtarte, and Ishtar (modern day Easter). Tammuz is mentioned by name in Ezekial 8:14. In fact, all idolatry has a link with Nimrod, his wife Semiramis and Tammuz. It is very likely they are the the same entities as Osiris, Isis and Horus. Remember that languages changed at the tower of Babel, that Nimrod, might have been the driving force behind. Josephus( a Jewish historian whose writings support scripture) goes into great detail about Nimrod, who set himself up as a solar deity, and may be the forerunner of all solar deities.

        You are so right…people fail to read their bible and notice that semiramis is in the bible just that different region and mation have their name for her but Ashtoreth is her hebrew name the original bible language..lot was hidden for people not to get..


    • October 16, 2014 @ 10:53 pm T.M.

      Ezekiel 8:14 mentions Tammuz. Also the Hebrew calendar…one of their months is Tammuz,as a reminder of their disobedience to God. It’s very interesting. Do some research on the subject. It’s deep stuff.


    • November 16, 2014 @ 5:57 am Dwight Osborne

      Yet Christianity WAS mixed with paganism-it’s called roman catholicism


    • July 4, 2015 @ 1:20 am Cene

      so you know you enemy; so you understand that this culture is no different- they worship the same pagan god. The Books of Jashur & Enoch were omitted – but why ? Greek mythology? I’m starting to think – these were not myths- but the result of nephilim. It works in the whole pattern – Our King Jahshuah is True- His mocker – well — mocks Him.


    • April 16, 2016 @ 10:42 pm Brad

      If you think the Bible doesn’t mention Semiramis and her son, Tammuz, or the worship of Nimrod (Noah’s great-grandson and Semiramis’s husband) as a Sun god, then you haven’t read Ezekiel 8: 13-16.

    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!

      Cierto. Pero si vamos entender las Escrituras, es necessario para nosotros para que tenga en cuenta la 2 Pedro 1:20, 1 Ts 5:21 y 1 Juan 4:1. De lo contrario, se inclinara hacia nuestra propia

    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.

    Semiramis is the third person of the Babylonian trinity, with Easter another name for Ishtar,which is another name for Semiramis, Santa being Woden, another name for Nimrod, Cupid is probably Nimrod, a mighty hunter before Elohim, and the Tammuz tree has been around for thousands of years prior to Christianity falsely claiming it as its own invention. The word ‘glory’ esteems Semiramis, the title ‘lord’ means ‘ba’al’, the title ‘god’ is another name of ‘gad,’ which can be traced back to Nimrod, with the word ‘sanctify’ being of Pagan origin, along with the following words; holy, hallowed, sacred, bible, grace, divine, deity, theos, christ, jesus, church and gospel, which has been shortened from ‘god-spell, which the Babylonian Mystery Religion seems to possibly have been, with every religion incorporating the practices of this trinity with their religion (syncretism). Every word that Christians use Pagan words to describe can usually be traced back to this trinity, have non-Pagan equivalent english terms and words like ‘eloah’ and assembly, Messiah, Yahusha, Good News, Master, Hebraic Scriptures, sovereign, redeemed, etc., so why does Christianity insist on using these Pagan-based words? Of course, I have just scratched the surface, for their is much more to be told…


    • December 16, 2014 @ 6:58 am phillips

      I have asked in another forum the question whether searching out and finding out these”secrets” would get us closer to “Heaven or Hell”,Are these things that important that we waste time gaining knowledge..one’s associaation with his creator is paramount moreso than critercising what has already been done…and christianity….Heaven help us all


    • February 26, 2016 @ 11:58 pm A Christian

      If this is the surface I can only imagine what could be lying beneath.. Please the next time you make such claims back them up with FACTS…


    • March 27, 2016 @ 8:22 am Nathan

      If these aren’t the proper words for the Almighty Creator, what are the proper words.
      I personally believe you’re heading in the right direction, however I learned a long time ago, when you point out a problem you should also be equipped to provide the solution.


    • February 11, 2017 @ 12:28 pm P. G. Slater

      I agree with all that you have written. Thankd for sharing. Maybe some of these people might take enough interest to do their own research and find truth as well. For those that want to know the truth, they must be willing to search. Study to show yourselves approved.


  6. April 24, 2015 @ 9:41 pm forheavensake

    There is a story that Semiramis was fed by doves after her father died. Has anyone else come across that info. That would make some interesting ties between ‘doves’ as in Jonah which means dove/vex/oppress/wrongdoing and of course the dove over Jesus’ head. Then the Noah link. There is this from Hosea as well: They shall tremble as a bird out of Egypt, and as a dove out of the land of Assyria: and I will place them in their houses, saith the LORD. Now, I know that the swallow represents Isis, the Dove probably Semiramis/Ishtar. Three birds can be found in Gilgamesh, the Story of Ushnaptim (Noah) from the Babylonian scriptures, a swallow, a dove and a raven. The raven if you follow the pattern in the Bible Noah story is said to “go to and fro” …. as is Satan in Job. So were women simply maligned back then (nothing new) or is the raven the good guy? What about genesis where it states that it is the seed of the WOMAN that crushes … lots to think about here.


  7. April 24, 2015 @ 9:50 pm forheavensake

    addendum: the dove and swallow were considered ‘clean’ birds in the OT, the raven was not, most likely due to the fact that it ate roadkill which could then contaminate humans. You might also find it interesting that the name El Shaddai means ‘breasts’ and ‘fertility’ … this is oddly juxtaposed to all the verses expounding that all shrines pertaining to female worship be destroyed. Then think “jealous god”


  8. July 23, 2016 @ 1:26 pm Tanja

    I just had a radical thought. I’m searching the various bloodlines postflood and how they connect. What if… She was “The Rebel”. Society often overlooked or under estimate the power of women. Especially as they are the weaker sex. Yet most of this false religion is based on female worship. The Queen of heaven. Her husband and son barely play any role? She could have been the master manipulator . She outlived all her husband’s. And if she was a granddaughter of NoahNOAH, her lifespan could have reached up to 430 years!
