Ra is the god who grew weary of mankind and handed over kingship to Osiris. It can be confusing and ambiguous, but even though Osiris was the son of a god, he was considered the first mortal king in mythology. Then jealous Set came along and mucked things up. Only when Osiris was resurrected and died once again, did he become a full deity.

There are numerous versions of such tales that were embellished or created down through time, so in essence there is not one, single Osiris myth. Nor is there one, single myth for Horus—who is not only a much older deity in the pantheon, but much more complicated. An aspect of Re, the king on earth, Horus the Avenger, Horus the Child, usually held to be the son of Isis but in other myths the son of Hathor, whose name in ancient Egyptian (Hwt-Hr) literally means "House of Horus."
