Oleg of Kursk

Nicholas Zharkikh

Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version.

P. Golubovsky presented the case of Oleg of Kursk completely mistakenly.

O. Zaitsev submitted his own fantasy on this topic.

M. Dimnik touched on this Oleg twice in the monograph dedicated to Michael Vsevolodovych.

A. Kuznetsov in very vague terms tried to connect the case of Oleg of Kursk with Novgorod the Great.

Thus, Oleg of Kursk is an insurmountable obstacle for researchers who cannot agree on "who he is and where he is from." All speculations about his genealogical position are equally baseless and this position should be considered unknown.
