Igor the martyr was the Great Prince of Kiev in the 12th century, while many contenders were vying for leadership of the city. The noblemen of Kiev broke their vow of fidelity to the Prince, arrested him, imprisoned him in a wooden cabin without windows and elevated one of their own candidates to the throne. Later, they sent him into exile, to the Orthodox monastery of Theodorov. Far from these political disputes, Saint Igor embraced the monastic life and devoted his life to prayer. While Saint Igor was praying during the Divine Liturgy, a mob rushed in and dragged him out of the church and murdered him, hanging him in the square. Because Saint Igor had been praying in front of an icon of the Mother of God before his murder, when he was recognised as a martyr and intercessor before God, the Church also exalted the icon that he had been praying before. His memory is honoured on the 18th of June.
