Grzymisława Ingvarevna of Łuck (born probably between 1185 and 1195;[1] died probably 8 November 1258[2]) was a Princess of Kraków, daughter of Ingvar of Kiev, Grand Prince of Kiev and Prince of Lutsk (pl: Łuck) from the Rurikid Dynasty.


In 1207, Grzymisława married Leszek the White,[3] Prince of Kraków. 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 Bolesław V the Chaste. After becoming independent, Bolesław still received considerable influence from his mother regarding his government. Grzymisława was closely linked with the Monastery of the Franciscans in Zawichost, where she became a benefactress. She died between 14 June and 24 December 1258, with a possible date of 8 November. She was probably buried in the Franciscan monastery in Zawichost.[4]

There are also differing views on Grzymisława's origins, with some historians positing that Leszek the White married or became engaged in 1207 or 1208 to a daughter of Ingvar, whose name is unknown. Later, between 1208 and 1211, he married Grzymisława, perhaps the daughter of Yaroslav of Kiev.[5]

Grzymisława and Leszek had three children:

  1. Salomea (1211/1212 – 1268), married Coloman of Lodomeria; later beatified by Pope Clement X
  2. Bolesław V the Chaste (21 June 1226 – 7 December 1279), succeeded his father
