Once she ascended to the Kyiv throne, Princess Olha started to conduct successful domestic and foreign policies, strengthening the trade and political ties of Kyiv Rus, and contributing to a rise in the state’s international prestige. She continued to maintain friendly relations with Byzantium, and was baptized in the empire’s main cathedral – Hagia Sophia.
