    Instead, her father quickly arranged with a marriage to the powerful Yaros lav I the Wise of Novgorod. Once in Russia, her name was changed to the Gr eek Irene. According to several sagas, she was given as a marriage gift La doga and adjacent lands, which later received the name Ingria (arguab ly a corruption of Ingigerd's name).
    She initiated the building of the Saint Sophia Cathedral in Kiev that w as supervised by her husband, who styled himself czar. They had six sons a nd four daughters, which became Queens of France, Hungary, Norway, and (ar guably) England. The whole family is depicted in one of the frescoes of t he Saint Sophia. Upon her death on 10 Feb. 1049, she was buried in the sa me cathedral.
    Ingigerd-Irene is sometimes confused with Yaroslav's first wife, whose na me was Anna. She was declared a local saint in Novgorod because of her ini tiative of building the Cathedral of St Sophia in Novgorod, where she is b uried.
