    Notes:

    "Svyatoslav remained a pagan, saying that if he converted, 'My men would laugh at that.' He is the first Kievan ruler of the line to have a purely Slavic name and be given a proper history in the chronicle, yet much of this must have come from oral tradition. He set out to expand his realm by conquest and thought of moving his capital to Pereyaslavets on the Danube, but after a lengthy campaign against the Byzantines he was ambushed and killed in 972 by the Pechenegs, who are said to have made a drinking up out of his skull."
