A Family Tree

St. Olga of Kiev icon via OrthodoxWiki has a curious bit of our patron's family tree posted here  This lineage makes her an ancestor of the French royal family (through Henri I's wife, Anna of Kiev). There is also a lovely painting of Princess Olga being baptized at the same link. Enjoy!


  1. This reminds me--when I was reading up on Olga, I came across this brief e-book on Pskov. It contains some nice photos and background information.

  2. That is wonderful. Thank you so much for passing on the link, Undine. (Boy, you get up early in the morning, girl.)
