I have to say, that's where my curiosity came from too! There was this cartoon based on the mummy of Tutankhamen coming back to life in a museum. It opened my eyes one day and I started to read like crazy.
I think one interesting thing about gods in ancient Egypt is that, much like in Ancient Greece, they have flaws and they've been human before! I love how Isis, Osiris and Seth are actually siblings yet Osiris had to marry Isis to keep the blood pure. This is one of my favorite stories. Seth grew to hate Osiris because he was loved by the people so he locked him in a chest. Isis loved him so much and went after him. She found parts of his body and by magic, completed him. The thing is, they had another sister, called Nephthys. She married Seth. But, just like the trend of those times, Osiris had a baby with Isis called Amentis AND a child with Nephthys, called Horus. He preferred Horus and visited him often under his spirit form.Horus took revenge for his father and went into the Underworld, after Seth.
I find this story very impressive.
