  1. No. Nimrod was an evil and wicked man who was supremely powerful. He used his might on several occasions to try and kill Abraham. The commentaries explain that Nimrod’s “greatness” and mightiness was his ability to ensnare people with his mouth, with his words.

  2. Which cities was under nimrod’s rule?

  3. I do not know as the Torah does not narrate which cities ruled over.
