Rogneda of Polotsk

F, b. 962, d. 1002

Parents

Family: St Vladimir I 'The Great' Of Kiev (b. 960, d. July 15, 1015)

Biography

  • Birth: Rogneda of Polotsk was born in 962 in Polotsk, Chelyabinsk, Russia.
  • Marriage: She and St Vladimir I 'The Great' Of Kiev were married in 980.
  • Death: Rogneda of Polotsk died in 1002, at age ~40.
  • Occupation: She was a Princess.
  • Note: (Ragnhild, Ragnilda, Rahneda, Rahnieda) Vladimir killed Ragnvald and his sons, and forcibly took Rogneda. She attempted to plot against Vladimir and kill him, but failed, and Vladimir banished her, together with Iziaslav to Polotsk. There is a legend that she became a nun and took the name Anastasia.

    It has been speculated that Ragnvald belonged to the Ynglings royal family of Norway. In or about 980, Vladimir of Novgorod, on learning that she was betrothed to his brother Yaropolk I of Kiev, took Polotsk and forced Rogneda to marry him. Having raped Rogneda in the presence of her parents, he ordered them to be killed, along with two of Rogneda's brothers. Rogneda gave him several children. The four sons were Yaroslav the Wise, Vsevolod, Mstislav, and Izyaslav. She also bore two daughters, one of whom is named by Nestor the Chronicler as Predslava (taken as a concubine of Boleslaus I of Poland, according to Gallus). A later chronicle tells a story, most likely taken from a Norse saga, of Rogneda plotting against Vladimir and asking her elder son, Izyaslav, to kill him. As was the Norse royal custom, she was sent with her elder son to govern the land of her parents, i.e. Polotsk. Izyaslav's line continued to rule Polotsk and the newly-found town of Izyaslavl until the Mongol invasion. After Vladimir converted to Christianity and took Anna Porphyrogeneta as his wife, he had to devorce all his previous wives, including Rogneda. After that, she entered the convent and took the name Anastasia. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.)
