Alexander Nevskoi

Alexander Nevskoi, a saint of the Greek Church, who in life was a grand-duke of Russia. He defeated a combination of the Danes, Swedes, and Teutonic knights in a great battle on the banks of the Neva, and from this fact he got his name. He died in 1263, and a fine monastery with a noble church in St. Petersburg, the works respectively of Peter the Great and the Empress Catherine, mark the site of his victory and enshrine the bones of the canonised warrior.
