Osiris, Horus, and Isis - Legend of the Pharaoh

Though one of the most important legends of ancient Egypt, the myth of Osiris isn't 100% known. There are numerous references in Egyptian sources to individual events of the legend, but no narrative of the full tale has been found. The chronological order of the events is uncertain and some details are difficult to determine. As a popular legend, there are also many different versions of the myth. This video presentation is a possible construction of the events using a blend of different accounts, primarily Egyptian.
