Roman’s princess

I , that the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine expelled Kilya Azirov and a bunch of Muscovites from its ranks.

I simply cannot imagine what the Academy will do without such an outstanding scientific force!

And on the other hand, I can’t imagine what kind of war we would have to start to deprive Legalny Ovoch of the degree of doctor of non-existent (well, economic) sciences?

As long as scientists enjoy clowning, and as long as the ballistic missile that was shot down over Kyiv today at around 7:10 did not hit me, I will continue (June 19, 2022 at 9:00 a.m.).

Regarding this princess (the second wife of Roman Mstislavich), there is a whole empty literature – who was she by origin and what was her name. There is no a mention of her lineage, her marriage to Roman, and even her name in the sources. I think that the constant restraint of ancient Rus’ and later chronicles regarding princesses is due to etiquette – the princess was considered the private property of the prince, and outsiders had no to deal with her.

However, regardless of whether such an etiquette requirement existed or not, the fact remains that there are no sources about her origin. Researchers have put forward many guesses, so that it is not even possible to divide them into "sharp ends" and "blunt ends".
