Well it's not unlikely - several scientists believe that Odin/wudin of Norse mythology might have been a king or chieftain whose legends slowly morphed into myth. And he then became a god. we have no records of such a king but it doesn't mean that he never existed - there are no written records of early Norse religion he could have lived long ago and people might have passed on the legends and his name by word of mouth for many years... And we all know what happens to stories when they're told over and over and time passes Smiley

So it could have happened in Egypt - just because we have no record of a resent king by that name around the time where Osiris started appearing as a god, doesn't mean it couldn't have originated from stories of a much earlier king.

But as with Odin - as long as we have no records with the name in connection with a king or ruler - we really can't say for sure - we can only make educated guesses from what we do know.


It's not a matter of a "recent" king since the first attestation of Osiris comes during late Dynasty 5, which is around 2400 BC while we actually have kings names going back to possibly as early as c.3250 BC. Again, none of these are associated with Osiris, as can be seen here:

Scorpion I...................................................Ska
Falcon........................................................H'yw
Lion............................................................Tyu
Pe-hor........................................................Tsh
Double Falcon............................................Nhb
Hat-Hor.......................................................Wadjha
Ny-Hor........................................................Mch
Hedjw-Hor
Horus Iry-Hor
Crocodile
Scorpion II
Horus Ka   

Names on the left are kings of Upper Egypt while those on the right are kings of Lower Egypt. Immediately noticeable is that they are more commonly associated with Horus.
