([877/79] or [910/20]-killed Iskorosten [=Korosten] [944/46], bur Dereva near Iskorosten). The Primary Chronicle names Igor as son of Rurik, adding that he was "very young" at his father¿s death. This suggests a birth date in [877/79] for consistency with the report about his supposed father¿s death in the same source. However, the chronology of Igor¿s son Sviatoslav, which is more robust as shown below, suggests that it is more likely that Igor was born in [910/20]. The Primary Chronicle records that Igor succeeded (his relative) Oleg in 912, but this chronology is also difficult to sustain. It is probably more accurate to suggest that Igor was established at Kiev by the end of the 930s. The existence of Igor as a historical figure is nevertheless corroborated: Liudprand of Cremona records that "rex...Inger" came to Constantinople, during the reign of Emperor Romanos I, with "mille et eo amplius navibus" (dated to 941 by Franklin & Shepard), and the De administrando imperio names his son "Sphendosthlabus Ingor Russiæ principis filius". Franklin & Shepard also refer to an apparently corroborating Khazar text, in which the leader is named 'H-L-G-W' [=Oleg?] and is said to have died in the Caspian region. Oleg negotiated privileged trading terms with Byzantium in , the text of which is incorporated into the Primary Chronicle. The main terms of the treaty are corroborated by the De administrando imperio. The Primary Chronicle records that Oleg was killed by Derevlian Slavs, who lived to the north-east of Kiev and were unwilling to submit to his rule. m ([930/35]) OLGA [Helga/Haelgha] --- (-969). The Primary Chronicle records that a wife Olga was brought [to Igor] from Pskov in 903. The date is clearly inconsistent with the suggested birth date of their son Sviatoslav in [935/40] as shown below. After her husband was killed, the Derevlian Slavs proposed her marriage to their own leader Mal, but the Primary Chronicle records that Olga exacted prompt and effective revenge for her husband's death after besieging the Derevlian capital of Iskorosten. Olga was regent for her son [from 945 to 964]. Her centre of power was based around Kiev where she owned two halls. The Primary Chronicle records that Olga was baptised in Constantinople in  by the emperor (Konstantinos VII), and took the name HELENA after the mother of Emperor Konstantinos the Great. Cedrenus records that "Elga Rossorum principis uxor" came to Constantinople after her husband died, was baptised, and returned home. The Continuator of Regino records that "legati Helenæ reginæ Rugorum", who had been baptised at Constantinople "sub Romano imperatore Constantinopolitano", visited Otto I King of Germany in 959, and that in 960 "Libutius ex cœnobitis sancti Albani" was consecrated "genti Rugorum episcopus" by "episcopo Adaldago" [archbishop of Bremen]. The Annales Quedlinburgenses record the arrival of "legati Rusciæ gentis ad regem Ottonem" in 960 and his sending "Adalbertum episcopum" to their country. The difference in the two sources of the name of the supposed first bishop is not explained. The Primary Chronicle records that, during the invasion of the Pechenegs in 968, Olga shut herself in the city of Kiev with her grandsons Yaropolk, Oleg and Vladimir and that she died in 969. She was later esteemed to be a saint, her feast day being 11 July.Källa: fmg.ac
