Osiris is known as God of the Underworld but he enjoyed a popular following in Egypt that endured after his assassination and consequent resurrection. What family rivalry brought about his worldly demise and otherworldly rise?

Instead of simply making statements, supported by a link, it would be far better if you posted your own thoughts and arguments. If you did that, it gives other members the opportunity to engage with you. Your current post does not.

It's not that I was born in Ireland,
It's the Ireland that was born in me.

That is a lot of reading but interesting when looking for cultural clues.  It seems this mythology played an important role in Greek mythology because the Greeks thought highly of Egypt and adopted the gods and math of Egypt, right?  Both the Egyptian and Greek mythologies along with Hebrew and Sumerian mythology played a strong role in our present culture.  Even our laws begin with stories of the gods.

The article says that around 2,400 BC Osiris, represents fertility and the flooding of the Nile. He becomes the "God"  manifesting the most power, it means you can live in a desert. The Hysksos may have invented the idea for the canals used by the Egyptians around 1750. Before the kings, the methods for predicting the floods and for managing the land were in place. 
Egypt shows the Greeks and Romans something about engineering and politics. Farmers had to accept the gods in whatever capacity presented to eventually it's old enough to be culture. The bones of agricultural workers from 2400 BC show brutal wear from hard labor especially the forearms, toes, teeth, backs and necks. No where to hide from kings.

In a barter economy, the simplest way to exact taxes is by seizing part of the produce, merchandise, or property. The agricultural sector of such an economy is easiest to tax. A farmer cannot deny possession of a field without losing his rights. The field can be measured, the yield assessed, and the produce is difficult to hide because of its large bulk. It is no wonder that peasants were the highest and most consistently taxed part of the population. (1)
The Shemsu Hor would have served several purposes at once. It allowed the monarch to be a visible presence in the life of his subjects, enabled his officials to keep a close eye on everything that was happening in the country at large, implementing policies, resolving disputes, and dispensing justice; defrayed the costs of maintaining the court and removed the burden of supporting it year-round in one location; and, last but by no means least, facilitated the systematic assessment and levying of taxes. A little later, in the Second Dynasty, the court explicitly recognized the actuarial potential of the Following of Horus. Thereafter, the event was combined with a formal census of the country's agricultural wealth. (44-45)
