Wadjet

The goddess Wadjet was known as the protector of kings and gods. She was the goddess of Lower Egypt and a firmly established figure in the Egyptian pantheon from the Early Dynastic Period. She appears, along with her sister the vulture goddess Nekhbet, in the ‘Two Ladies’ name of the pharaoh, just one of the five royal titulars. The Two Ladies name signified the pharaoh’s dominion over both Lower and Upper Egypt. Within the Osiris Myth, Wadjet is the protectress of Horus, raising him together with Isis.
