Olga of Kiev

The year of Olga's birth is unknown, but it is estimated that it was born around c.890-925. Dopelskov, Kiev Russia (Pleskov, Kievan Rus), with her descended from the Vikings (Viking).

At around the age of 15, Olga entered a wedding with Prince Igor I of Kiev, the son of Rurik, a Viking who founded the Rurik dynasdy in Novgorod, where the Rurik dynasty was the first royal of Russia.

Olga and Prince Igor have one son, Prince Sviatoslav.

After King Ruric Sawankart, Igor became king, but under the supervision of Oleg, the regent Oleg fought the kingdom, conquered neighboring tribes and gathered territory, and created a new capital, Kiev, which was the birth of the Kingdom of Kiev Russia, or Kievan Rus (Kievan Rus)

Later, Kivanras sent an army to attack the Byzantine Empire, which in the war included the Drevlians, a tribe that allowed Kivanus to join the battle.

But when Oleg, the regent, died, the Ddrevlians stopped to send tributes to the Kievrus.

In 945, Igor led troops to invade Iskorosten, the capital of Drevlian, and forced Drevlian to return the same tribute. Again Iscroroten, but when he came to the border of the Devlians, Igor was put to death by death.

After Igor Swarakot, Olga came to rule Kiev as regent in place of Prince Svietoslav, who was still young, with only three Chongsars.

The Dhavlian, who was so gladly able to live with Igor, was exuberant and sent a wedding to Olga, offering him a wedding to Prince Mal of the Drevlians.

THE DREVLIANS SENT SEVERAL DIPLOMATIC STAFF TO KIEV TO SUBMIT THEIR KING'S PROPOSALS TO OLGA, BUT OLGA ORDERED THOSE DIPLOMATS TO BE BURIED.

Then Drevlian sent a second envoy after him, unaware of the fate of the first envoys. The second envoy was tricked into taking a bath before the vigil, but when they went to the bath, Olga ordered the soldiers to set fire to their baths, so that the ambassadors were burned alive.

After that, Olga sent the queen to the king of Drevlian, telling the people of Drevlians to prepare the meringue, for Olga would go to the town where Igor was slain, and to make a funeral for Igor.

And by the time the appointment was made, Olga had finished going to Igor's tomb and performed a real mourning ceremony, where the Draplians who participated in the ceremony drank so heavily that they were unconscious. It was recorded that up to five thousand people of Drevlians were slain. And after this day Olga returned to Kiev and prepared the army to go back to wipe out the surviving Drevlians.

Olga led an army to invade the city of Iskorosten, which Olga had besieged the city for more than a year but could not be defeated. Olga sent a message to the people of Iskorosten to surrender and pay tribute, and everyone could return to their gardening life in peace.

THE DREVLIANS ANSWERED OLGA THAT THEY WOULD LOSE THEIR TRIBUTE, BUT STILL COULDN'T TRUST OLGA TO STOP AVENGING THE LORD?

Olga then replied that he had killed the envoy who had been sent twice, and killed many of the Dravlians on the night of mourning for Igor. And Olga wrote a small claim in the message: Olga asked the townspeople to hand over three pigeons and finches each as a tribute.

THE DREVLIANS OF THE CITY, WHO SAW OLGA'S DEMANDS AS LITTLE THINGS, WERE DELIGHTED AND WILLING TO FIND THE BIRDS THAT OLGA WANTED IN EXCHANGE FOR PEACE.

And when Olga had got the birds, she ordered the soldiers to put a rag on all the birds, until nightfall she set fire to the rag attached to the bird, and let the bird fly back to its nest in the city. Order those who fire out or enslaved them.

After the war with Drevlian, Olga remained the regent of his son and ruled Kievras. The law was revised, the river and port cities were built for trade, improved the system of collecting tributes.

In 950s, around 955-957, Olga went to Constantinople, the Byzantine Empire. At that time, the days of Emperor Constantine VII, helped Olga turn to Christianity. When Olga returned to Kiev, she was unable to incline Slavic King Stovia to convert to Christ.

968 Siege of Kiev, the Pechenegs, a tribe of Turks, semi-nomadic, lived in the rhythm of which King Svitoslav put his army to war with Bulgaria, invaded Kiev and besieged it.

969 Olga died from the melodies

In 988 Vladimir the Great, Olga's royal appointment, can successfully turn Kivanus into Christ.

In 1547, the Russian Orthodox Christ appointed Olga as a saint (Saint).
