Son of Rurik, Ingvar was born around 875 AD and was only a child when his father died. Rulership of the vast lands of Rus fell to Helgi, the boy’s uncle who raised Ingvar as his own. Thirty years later, Ingvar succeeded Helgi as Grand Prince of Kiev and took control of the ever-expanding empire. He also ruled for around 30 years and carried the conquests of Kievan Rus further, forging east and undertaking campaigns against Persia, Constantinople and Bulgaria. Married, with a son of his own, Ingvar died around 945 AD. The Vikings were at the height of their power during this period, venturing across the Baltic, the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. Their voyages east led to the creation of an empire that rivalled that of the Byzantine.
