Grzymis?awa Ingvarevna of Luck (born probably between 1185 and 1195; died probably 8 November 1258) 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"), 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.
