The article analyses the multi-genre works by Ukrainian and foreign writers about the daughters of Yaroslav the Wise, who became the queens of European states. The author comprehends the artistic interpretation of the prince-reformer image and his era in these works. The writers of various national literatures sought to combine artistic truth with historical, impartially depict the well-known facts of the life and work of Yaroslav the Wise. The image of the Kyiv Grand Prince is episodic in the works about his famous daughters. Mostly he is portrayed as a thoughtful statesman, a visionary politician, an educational and cultural figure. The chronicle image is supplemented by the desire of the authors to reveal the inner world of Prince Yaroslav, to show him as an ordinary person, husband and father. Writers solved the problems of incompleteness and contradictions of historical sources creatively. They accepted or denied separate versions of the events; the missing details were compensated by artistic guesses. The main sources of credibility of the artistic narrative in the analyzed works were Russian chronicles, foreign chronicles, Scandinavian folklore, and the works of medieval historians. In the artistic interpretation of the historical past and historical figures, writers of various literatures mainly adhered to the views established in the historiography of their countries. For Ukrainian writers, the paramount is the desire to overcome the imperial myths about Kievan Rus, to awaken the historical memory of the Nation, to increase the resistance of the national organism to any imperial manipulations.
