One of the most notable emperors in history of nations is Nimrod who is known as a symbol of cruelty. What he did has now become a source for many representations in historical and literary texts. Therefore, we can see many different stories based on his life and character, for example, we can have a look at Kashf-Al Asrar written by Rashid-Aldin Meybodi in the 520 Ah. He depicted Nimrod based on the holy Quran and also some legendry tales. We can also have a look at a work by French poet Victor Hugo. Hugo depicted Nimrod in The legend of ages based on the epics and different religious books. Therefore, the aim of this research is to study the process of the characterization of Nimrod and his dynamic character in Victor Hugo’s The legend of ages and Rashid-Aldin Meybodi’s Kashf-Al Asrar exegesis base on thematology of heroic and legendry characters represented in literary works. The methodology of this study is based on narratology, especially representation of one character from one source in two different texts. This research answers the difference in the writer’s idea about the society in which he lives there and his aims to representations of ideas in society cause to rise a story in different cultural context and make directional changes in parts of story. These methods used to answer how Nimrod's character is developed in the rewriting of the story.
