Abstract
Not numerous cases of breaches of the Church prohibition on consanguinity in marriage in the dynasty of Rurikids are analyzed in this paper. The Princes of Rus’ in the pre-Mongolian time substantially abide by the Canonical Law which put essential restrictions on the consanguinity in marriage. The absence of the inside dynasty matrimonial alliances is in itself till the end of the 11th century emphasizes the dynasty desire to follow the order, as at that time the separate brunches of the family did not have time to grow and divided so that the kindred between their representatives became remote enough for legal marriages. Total overview of all known by Chronicle dynastic matrimony of 12th century shows that the case of violation sometimes happened though it is talked about marriage alliances between second cousins (so called the sixth degree of kindred) belonging to one brunch of the descendants of Agafiia Vladimirovna, the daughter of Vladimir Monomakh.
