Prince Olek celebrated the start of his principality next to his Princess Olena. The Father of Olek abdicated the throne to return to the north, to the land of their Viking ancestors, where he wanted to spend the last years of his life. A messenger brought the news that the troops of Ogodei the Great Mongol Khan, son of Genghis, galloped west toward Kiev, to receive their unconditional surrender or deliver their final destruction.
