The Legend of Osiris
The legend of Osiris was a legend about how Osiris, Isis, Seth, and Horus became gods and a goddess.
It all started when he was created by a creation god but some say he was born of Geb and Tut. He was the first king of Egypt and ruled for many years. Osiris was married to his sister Isis and Seth was their brother. Seth was jealous of Osiris so he killed him by throwing him in the waters of the Nile. Isis got his body but Seth found out then cut his body into pieces then spread it thought Egypt. Isis got all the pieces together with the help of Anubis and they healed his body.
The Legend of Osiris (continued)
They then turned into a god and a goddess to be rulers of the underworld. Osiris and Isis had a son named Horus, he killed Seth to avenge his father. He then turned to a god to be with his mother and father. Seth also turned into a god, to be god of chaos.
