Where was it recently demonstrated that Svyatopolk was illegitimate? I think that this reference should be added as a footnote or in a section titled "References" at the end of the article. --Theo (Talk) 10:40, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)

  • There is a medieval iluminated manuscript known as "Gertrude Psalter" (also Egbert Psalter or Trier Psalter). It was originally created in late 10th century for archbishop Egbert of Trier, then in the 11th century it passed to Gertrude, wife of Iziaslav of Kiev. She included her prayer book as part of the codex, and in it she prays six times for Yaropolk, "unicus filius meus" (my only son). Gertrude is the only known wife of Iziaslav, and we have it on her own authority that Sviatopolk was not her son. It's also a good bet that Sviatopolk was older than Yaropolk, as he first becomes active politically in 1069, whereas Yaropolk doesn't become active until 1071. Missi 13:56, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Why did the Kievan citizens rebel "against the Jewish merchants and Varangian officials who speculated in grain and salt" when Svyatopolk died? Did his death trigger the rebellion? What prevented the rebellion before his death? --Theo (Talk) 11:43, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)
