An Egyptian ankh necklace
Horus is the Egyptian god of the sky, of the Sun and of pharaohs who is depicted under the form of a falcon or under the form of a man with the head of a falcon. Today, we know the falcon god under the name of Horus, a name given to him by the Greeks (his real name being "Hur" meaning "the sky", "the unattainable" or "the one who is high" in ancient Egyptian).
As the god of pharaohs, Horus is always depicted with the Pschent crown (the red and white crown of pharaohs whose red represents the Upper Egypt and whose white represents the Lower Egypt).
A pendant from ancient Egypt
In Egyptian mythology, Horus’ father, the god-pharaoh Osiris, who had been killed by his brother Set, appeared to Horus demanding that he struggle for the throne of Egypt, what Horus tried to accomplish.
Horus's half-brother was the god of mummification Anubis who was born from the adulterous relationship of Nephthys (the wife of Set) and Osiris. Fearing the wrath of her husband, Nephthys abandoned the infant Anubis in the desert, where he was found by Isis with the help of jackals.
At the end of the "Osirian myth", after defeating Set and banishing him in the desert, Horus married Hathor, the goddess of beauty and love. Yet, in some of the earliest myths of Egypt, a scorpion goddess named Selket acts as the wife of Horus.
