Maria Mstislavna Rurik of Kiev was born circa 1108 to Mstislav I Vladimirovich of Kiev (1076-1132) and Christina Ingesdotter of Sweden (c1080-1122) and died circa 1155 of unspecified causes. She married Vsevolod II Olgovich of Kiev (1094-1146) .

Maria (Agafia) Mstislavna (died 1179 ) - wife of the Grand Prince of Kiev Vsevolod Olgovich, daughter of the Grand Prince of Kiev Mstislav Vladimirovich and Swedish Princess Christina.


Princess Maria (Agafia) Mstislavna was married to the Novgorod-Severus prince Vsevolod Olgovich in 1116 . Her husband was a long-time opponent of her father, and the marriage was called upon to soften relations.

Later, when her husband took the throne of Kiev from the wife of his wife Monomashich, his wife became an important mediator between him and his brothers. For example, during a dispute about the Novgorod table Izyaslav Mstislavich instructs her to "ask for" his wife in that she carries out [1] .

It is believed that she was one of the founders of the Church of St. Cyril in Kiev , which began to be built in 1139, with the accession of Vsevolod to the throne of the throne. It was the main cathedral of the Cyril Monastery, apparently designed to become the family burial vault of the Chernigov princes of the Ol'govichi . In this church Mary was buried.


Maria and Vsevolod had five children:
