Sviatoslav I of Kiev

- The Price of Rus, his ascension to the throne marked a period of rapid expansion for the Rus Kingdom. He began his incessant campaigns in the east and south which as a result toppled two major powers at the time, Khazaria and the first Bulgarian Empire. His conquest would not stop there, he went on and conquered countless Slavic tribes. Among those he defeated were east Slavic tribes, the Alans, Volga Bulgars, Pechenegs, and the Magyars. Sviatoslav carved himself out the largest Kingdoms in Europe thus granting him the title of The Brave. His mother had converted to Christianity although despite her efforts to convert him he remained true to his Slavic Pagan Faith. He died as a man to be feared throughout all of Europe.
