Artist's Description:

"The daughters of Yaroslav the Wise, the Grand Prince of Kyiv: Anastasia, Elizabeth, and Anna, became queens in Europe. The Ukrainian code of culture and traditions entered European countries through the descendants of Yaroslav the Wise.

ANASTASIA was a patron of the founding of Orthodox monasteries in Hungary. On the Tihany Peninsula at Lake Balaton, there is an old abbey founded by King Andrew the First in the middle of the 11th century. The king himself is buried in the church of this abbey. In front of the church, a monument was erected to the Hungarian king and princess Anastasia, daughter of the prince of Kievan Rus Yaroslav the Wise. Queen Anastasia played a great role in the organization of Christianity in Hungary in the distant times of paganism.

ELIZABETH - Queen of Norway, then Queen of Denmark. Went down in history as the most daring Viking queen. After the death of her husband, the King of Norway, she became Queen of Denmark.

ANNE is the Queen of France. In Ukraine, a facsimile reproduction of the text of the Slavonic Reims Gospel of Queen Anna Yaroslavovna of France, daughter of the Grand Prince of Kyiv Yaroslav the Wise, the oldest original relic of Ukrainian church literature, was published. It left the Kyiv princely scriptorium by the end of the fourth decade of the 11th century, preserved in the city library of the French city of Reims."
