An Egyptian ankh necklace
In Egyptian mythology, Horus is perceived as born to be the avenger of the death of his father, the first pharaoh of the Earth. Indeed, at the beginning of the Egyptian myth called "Osirian myth ", Horus’ father, Osiris, is killed by his brother, the god Set.
In this myth, Horus will first ask a court of three ancient gods (composed of Ra, the god of the Sun; of Thoth, the god of wisdom; and of Shu, the god of earth) to condemn Set and to return Osiris' inheritance to Horus, the dead Egyptian king's only son. However, although Thoth and Shu agree with Horus and want to punish Set, Ra is upset that his opinion was not asked first: so, he takes the defence of Set.
A pendant from ancient Egypt
Because of this non-choice, Horus is recognized as the rightful heir of Osiris and gets the kingdom only after a long battle against Set (which lasted 80 years according to the most known version of the myth).
Having defeated Set and exiled him in the desert, Horus resurrects his father by letting him swallow his left eye (the magical eye Udjat, a gift from the ibis-headed god Thoth). However, Osiris decides to not return to Earth with the aim of ruling the realm of the afterlife, the Amenti. For this reason, Horus rules the realm of the living.
