The true heir: An ancient tale of sibling jealousy and betrayal

Egyptian Mythology

Osiris and Seth were brothers, one day Osiris became the king of the Nile valley. He successfully established his kingdom but Seth was jealous to see him a king. One day Seth invited his brother for a meal and showed him a box and asked to choose one out of a small box and big box. As Osiris was confused Seth asked him to lie in the big box and check. Without thinking, he got into the big box and Seth sealed the box and buried him alive. This was not enough to satisfy his jealousy, he cut Osiris body into pieces and threw them in the Nile.
