On February 10, 1050, a nun named Anna died in Novgorod in Russia. Anna, who was in her 50s, had been at the convent for a few years before her death. During her time as a nun, her habit hid none other than the Grand Princess Irina, Russia's most powerful woman. Her real name was Ingegerd, and she was the daughter of King Olof of Sigtuna. Ingegerd was born about the year 1000. Where she was born we cannot safely guess. The king and his family were very much on the go. But as it was in Sigtuna that Olof in the year 995 had to start his reign, the first king in Sweden, it is likely that he occasionally took care of policy and management from the city's royal estate. In Viking times, it was very common for royal children to be sent to relatives to be educated. Ingegerd's mother was a Slavic princess named Estrid, and Ingegerd's brother James was raised by his mother's family on the southern shore of the Baltic. Stepsister Astrid was sent to Egil, the Vastgota (Western Goth) chief. But...

Ingegerda Olofsdotter Švédská (okolo r. 1000 – 10. února 1050) byla švédská princezna a kyjevská kněžna jako manželka Jaroslava Moudrého. Byla dcerou švédského krále Olofa Skötkonunga a Estrid Obodritské. Pravoslavná církev ji uznává jako sv. Annu z Novgorodu zejména díky chrámům, které založila v Kyjevě a Novgorodu.
King Olof of Sweden agreed at first but broke his promise. King Olav was supposed to have married Astrid's half sister, Olof Skötkonung's legitimate daughter Ingegerd Olofsdotter of Sweden. Ingegerd was, however, after his father's wishes instead married to Yaroslav I the Wise, Grand Prince of Novgorod and Kiev.
In 1019, Yaroslav married Ingegerd Olofsdotter, daughter of the king of Sweden, and gave Staraya Ladoga to her as a marriage gift. Saint Sophia's Cathedral in Kiev houses a fresco representing the whole family: Yaroslav, Irene (as Ingegerd was known in Rus), their four daughters and six sons.
