Princess Olga of Kiev was named a ruthless woman. She was born sometime around 903 CE in Pskov, Russia. She killed many people to avenge instead of her husband and later she became a saint.

Vengeance of Princess Olga

Princess Olga meets the body of her husband, by Vasily Surikov

The brutal story of Princess Olga begins when Prince Igor her husband was killed by Drevlians because Prince Igor exploited from Drevlian people to pay annual tribute. Because of this, some Drevlian people were dissatisfied and killed him.

After the Drevlians killed Prince Igor. They thought to capture the Princess Olga and the Prince Sviatoslav. They sent 20 of their best man to negotiate with the Princess Olga. And offered to Princess Olga to marry Prince Mal. The Princess Olga was satisfied with this offer and asked them to come back the following day. That night, the Princess Olga  had ordered to dig a large hole in front of the castle. When the diplomats came, they fell into the pit and the Princess instructed the soldiers to dig the ground to cover them to death.

The Princess Olga went to meet and ordered Drevlian people to prepare liquor and honey so that she mourns and organize funeral rite for husbands. She came with a small army. When the Drevlian people asked about their diplomats she said they were coming. While the Drevlians was fun and drunk. Princess Olga ordered to her soldiers to killed Drevlian’s soldiers more than 5,000 soldiers.

Revenge is not over yet. The last time, Princess Olga sends a message to the Drevlians that she needs three sparrows and three doves from each of the inhabitants then she will stop fighting. After people know that, so quickly deliver with pleased. But really this is indeed her plan. She ordered soldiers take a clothe that sulfur at each bird’s feet. Then their birds will fly home and make a fire for their home and She ordered the soldiers to killed all the people who fled.

Conversion of religion and become to saint

St. Olga of Kiev (Feast Day – July 11)

After the revenge event ended. History records that she was the first ruler of the Kievan Rus dynasty became to Eastern Orthodoxy. To open trade opportunities with the Byzantine Empire Moravia and Bulgaria.

Changing religion to trade has made Princess Olga become a religious minority in her country. And finally she became a saint. She is regarded as the Grand Master of this Church in Russia and Ukraine. The story of vengeance was pushed into the past that is still a heretic. After her death in 969, she was regarded as a strong believer.

The truth of this matter

The story of the princess Olga of Kiev and the story of her avenger seems to be a fiction. So it is argued that it is true or not. Because her story is similar to the Viking but the time of the story is different.

I believe and I think it is true because at that time, Conflict, Power and Combat Combat. It’s look normal because if there is no conflict and power struggle. The new history will not happen. The Princess Olga avenged the Drevlian people instead of her husband. It is the big thing that a woman can do it. But look back at me if I was a princess at that time. I would do the same because they kill the one I love the most. I think the Princess Olga is very smart and brave. If i would like to compare is the heart is a man but the body is a women.

Who care about this story? I think no one and i do not care. But what is interesting about this is the ingenuity to rule of the city and the sacrifice of the Princess Olga by changing her own religion to open up trade opportunities with many empires. Eventually, the Princess Olga becomes a saint. I believe that the act of the princess is good because in the past the Princess Olga had avenged and killed many people. After this, the princess wants to give something good and wants to help others.
