Kyi, Shchek and Khoryv are three legendary brothers often mentioned along with their sister Lybid, who, according to the Primary Chronicle, were the founders of the medieval city of Kiev, now the capital of Ukraine. There is no precise and historically established information about rule of Kyi and establishment of the city of Kyiv. Many historians consider as truthful the existence of Kyi and his princely rule around the 6th century. Among such historians are Boris Rybakov, Dmitry Likhachov, Aleksey Shakhmatov, Alexander Presnyakov, Petro Tolochko, Nataliia Polonska-Vasylenko, and others.The legend is widely recognized as a source of Kievan mythology and urban naming.
