Description

Sineus was a brother of Rurik, and sailed with him from Scandinavia to the location of present-day Kiev in Ukraine. According to the 12th-century Primary Chronicle, Sineus settled in Beloozero, now called Belozersk, on the shores of Lake Beloye, where he secured these lands for the growing Kievan Rus empire.
