She significantly expanded the domain of the Kievan grand princes. In 955 (or 957) she visited Constantinople and adopted Christianity. Ol’ga was the head of state until her son, Sviatoslav Igorevich, came of age, and again during his campaigns. In 968 she directed the defense of Kiev against the Pechenegs. She was canonized by the Russian church.
