Tradition tells of the origins of Russia in the 9 century with the Kievan Rus. The Slavs drove the Varangian Vikings, or Rus, out of the area between the Black and Baltic seas, back to Sweden from whence they came — only to discover that they were unable to govern themselves. To put down the ensuing disorder, they invited the Rus to return as legitimate rulers.

Among them was one Riurik, a Varangian prince, who became Prince of Novgorod, a city located some 160 km south and 60 km east of present-day St Petersburg (former Leningrad). His descendants, the Rurikid Dynasty, ruled Russia to the end of the 16 century and the Time of Troubles. The Princes of Vladimir and, ultimately, the Tsars of Russia trace their origins to this family.  -30-

Candidates Work List

This is my working list of candidates to include -- I'm not yet sure if they are related to me! As candidates are eliminated (proven not related) they are marked appropriately (THUS) and an explanation included. They are kept in the list in case future research proves they can be included. (And to keep them from popping up on the list again!) Never discard good research!

Proven candidates' names are marked with an asterisk (*) until they can be added to the database.

*(St.) Irene-Anna (?-1018)
*(St.) Yaroslav I the Wise [1019-1054]
Prince of Novgorod and Kiev
