Case File: Horus the Younger vs. Seth

Police Reports

Case Description: The case of whether Horus the Younger or Seth should be made king of Egypt was held up in the divine courts for more than 80 years while each of the gods attempted to prove his case. At first, Thoth was involved as the court stenographer, but eventually he got involved in the case directly, when Seth tried to trick Thoth into helping him.

Case Status: Case closed. Eventually, Horus the Younger was given Osiris's throne. Seth's trickery was revealed, and Thoth was given a moon-disk crown for his trouble.
