Grzymis?awa Ingvarevna of Luck (born probably between 1185 and 1195[1]; died probably 8 November 1258[2]) was a Princess of Krakow, daughter of Ingvar of Kiev, Grand Prince of Kiev and Prince of Lutsk from the Rurikid Dynasty.


In 1207, Grzymis?awa married Leszek ("the White"),[3] Prince of Krakow. This marriage was part of Leszek's avowed policy of eastward expansion. After the assassination of her husband (24 November 1227), she became regent on behalf of her minor son Boles?aw V ("the Chaste"). After becoming independent Boleslaw still exerted considerable influence from his mother on his government. Grzymislawa was closely linked with the Monastery of the Franciscans in Zawichost where she became benefactress. She died between 14 June and 24 December 1258 (it is possible that she died on 8 November). She was probably buried in the Franciscan monastery in Zawicho?cie.[4]

There are also different views on Grzymis?awa's origins with some historians positing that Leszek ("the White") married or became engaged in 1207 or 1208 to the daughter Ingwar, whose name is unknown. Later, between 1208 and 1211, he married Grzymis?awa, perhaps the daughter of Yaroslav of Kiev.[5]

Grzymis?awa and Leszek had three children:

  1. Salomea (1211/1212 - 1268), married Coloman of Lodomeria; later beatified by Pope Clement X.
  2. Helena (d. 1265), married Vasilko Romanovich[6]
  3. Boles?aw V the Chaste (21 June 1226 O.S. - 7 December 1279 O.S.), succeeded his father
