Explanation

Despite the use of the word although, the structure of this sentence, including the colon, makes clear that you need a word that goes in the same direction as the clue. Whether you look to known or the phrase after the colon (or both), the blank must mean something like recognized. None of relegated, abrogated, annulled, or criticized means recognized, so eliminate choices (A), (B), (C), and (D). Someone who is positively recognized for something would be apotheosized, so select choice (E).

Hence option E is correct!
