Osiris, the eldest son of Geb and Nut’s five children, taught man about farming and created the first cities in Egypt. Osiris’ brother Set, was jealous of him and tricked him into climbing into a golden coffin, Set then sealed the lid and chopped the coffin into many pieces and scattered them all over Egypt. Osiris’s wife Isis, with the help of her sister-in-law Nephthys (who didn’t like her husband Set very much) searched Egypt for the body parts and when they had collected them all, she eventually put Osiris back together by binding him with cloth, making him the first mummy. Osiris didn’t fully come back to life though; he became the god of the underworld instead, where he would sit in judgment over the dead. Now Isis loved her husband Osiris very much and after what Set had done to him she wanted vengeance so she encouraged her son Horus to take revenge on Set. Horus, known as The Avenger, challenged Set and defeated him to become the new pharaoh of Egypt.
