Historians in pre-revolutionary Russia, in the Soviet Union, in contemporary Russia, and in the West have consistently relegated the medieval dynasty of Chernigov to a place of minor importance in Kievan Rus.

This view was reinforced by the evidence that, after the Mongols invaded Rus in 1237, the two branches from the House of Monomakh living in the Rostov-Suzdal and Galicia-Volyn regions emerged as the most powerful. However, careful examination of the chronicle accounts reporting the dynastys history during the second half of the twelfth and the first half of the thirteenth century shows that the Olgovichi of Chernigov successfully challenged the Monomashichi for supremacy in Rus. Through a critical analysis of the available primary sources (such as chronicles, archaeology, coins, seals, graffiti in churches, and architecture) this book attempts correct the pervading erroneous view by allocating to the Olgovichi their rightful place in the dynastic hierarchy of Kievan Rus.
