Osiris, Son of Geb and Nut, Brother and Husband to Isis, Brother of Set.
Osiris was a grand King of Egypt, he built the temples and made new laws which were fair for the people, and his people loved him, for he cared for them, showed them how to farm the land, and rid the land cannibalisum.

His brother Set became jealous of his popularity and plotted a devious plan to kill him. This way Set could live as Pharaoh, rule and change the Kingdom again. He set about his plan.

One day a huge party took place and Set had a magnificent coffin made, he told the people of the party, whomever fitted in this grand coffin, may keep it,, he let everyone try it for size. Except it fitted no one, other than Osiris.

Osiris was overjoyed that this grand coffin would be his. And Set told him to try it out for size, so he did. When Osiris got in, and Set immediately ordered his men to nail down the lid, tight. After this was done, Set then ordered the coffin to be thrown into the Nile. Where it sank to the bottom.

Isis soon found out and hawled her husbands body from the depths of the Nile. Isis then hid it in marshes, but Set found it. He then took Osiris’ body and cut it into pieces, which he spread over the kingdom.

Isis spent time looking for her husband, and when she had found all the pieces, she asked Anubis, to help her put Osiris back together. Once together, they became husband and wife and produced Horus. I believe Osiris became the first Mummified Egyptian.
