    Olga's origins are not known with certainty, but she may have come from Pskov. She was probably of Varangian (Scandinavian or Viking) heritage. Olga was married to Prince Igor I of Kiev in about 903. Igor was the son of Rurik, often seen as the founder of Russia, as Rus. Igor became the ruler of Kiev, a state which included parts of what is now Russia, the Ukraine, Byelorussia, and Poland. A 944 treaty with the Greeks mentions both baptized and unbaptized Rus.

    When Igor was murdered in 945, Princess Olga assumed the regency for her son, Svyatoslav. Olga served as regent until her son was of age in 964. She was known as a ruthless and effective ruler. She resisted marrying Prince Mal of the Drevlians, who had been the killers of Igor, killing their emissaries and burning their city in revenge for her husband's death. She resisted other offers of marriage and defended Kiev from attacks.

    Olga turned to religion — specifically, to Christianity. She traveled to Constantinople in 957, where some sources say that she was baptized by the Patriarch Polyeuctus with Emperor Constantine VIIas her godfather. She may have converted to Christianity, including becoming baptized, before her trip to Constantinople (perhaps in 945). There are no historical records of her baptism, so the controversy is not likely to be settled. After Olga returned to Kiev, she was unsuccessful in converting her son or many others. Bishops appointed by the Holy Roman Emperor Otto were expelled by Svyatoslav's allies, according to several early sources. Her example, however, may have helped to influence her grandson, Vladimir I. He was the third son of Svyatoslav and brought Kiev (Rus) into the official Christian fold. Olga died, probably on July 11, 969. She is considered the first saint of the Russian Orthodox Church. Her relics were lost in the 18th century.

  3. Princesa olga. La princesa Olga nació en la actual región de Pskov, en una familia de personas comunes y corrientes. Ella era la esposa del príncipe Igor. Según algunos informes, Olga se casó en quince años incompletos. Con su futura esposa, Igor se reunió en una cacería y quedó cautivado por su belleza y su mente.

  4. Princess Olga, together with her young grandchildren, had to organize the defense of the city. She died soon after Kiev’s siege in 969. In honor of his mother’s will, Svyatoslav ordered Olga buried according to Christian canons. In 1547 the Orthodox Church proclaimed Princess Olga a saint and equal-to-the-apostles.
