== Early Life ==
St. Vladimir was a devout pagan in his early life. He was a great conqueror, who had many wives, and erected many pagan statues in the lands that he ruled over.
== After St. Vladimir’s Conversion ==
St. Vladimir changed completely after his baptism. He destroyed all the pagan statues that stood in Russia, and replaced them with Churches. He also attempted to live in peace as much as possible with his neighbors, and had only one wife.
== Notes ==
St. Vladimir is also the grandson of St. Olga, and the father of St. Boris and St. Gleb the Passion-Bearers.
