I have a question! I was reading some books and I am confused. Shocked I hear about Isis being the mother of Horus, then I hear Hathor being the mother of Horus…what’s going on? Also, who holds the title for a motherly fiqure!? Isis or Hathor? Can someone give me some ideas? Question

Thanks, Wink

It can be quite confusing at times. This site may help a bit:

I think part of your confusion stems from poor wording on things you are reading.
Isis was the wife of Osiris, and the mother of Horus.

Hathor could be referred to as the mother of Pharaoh, who was considered to be the living Horus.

Text can sometimes can be sketchy and confusing
I've read several mythology books and overall gained

Isis is the mother goddess or great enchantress
who is the wife to Osiris and mother of Horus
She is sometime depicted with horns which can cause
some confusion. Confused

Hathor- was Horus's nurse
she is often depicted nursing Horus and called motherly
but was not his actually mother.

Thanks for the replies guys! I am so sorry I was not able to say thank you! My internet connection was giving me problems for a while Rolling Eyes

I see though, that really cleared some things up for me! Again, thanks so much!
