Marianne's name in history: Marianna Y. Mnishek - that was the name of a woman who is notorious in Russian history as Marina Mnishek. This is the daughter of the sendomirsky voevoda, the wife of False Dmitry I. Marina-Marianna, embellished with romantic tales, acquainted herself with the False Dmitry in 1604, and then the engagement took place. Marina-Marianna agreed to be the wife of an unknown and ugly former serf, wishing to become a tsarina and yielding to the persuasion of the Catholic clergy who chose her as their instrument for carrying Catholicism to Muscovy. Upon engagement, she was promised an impostor, except for money and diamonds, Novgorod and Pskov, were granted the right to practice Catholicism and marry another if Falsdmitry failed. In November 1605, Marina-Marianna was betrothed to the clerk Vlasalen, who represented the fiancé-king, and on May 3, 1606.she with great pomp, accompanied by her father and a large retinue, drove into Moscow. Five days later, the wedding and coronation of Marina Marianne took place. Exactly a week reigned in Moscow a new queen. After the death of her husband, a stormy and deprived life begins for her, during which she showed a lot of character and resourcefulness. Not killed during the massacre on May 17 only because she was not recognized and then defended by the boyars, she was sent to her father. In August 1606, Shuisky settled all the Mnisheks in Yaroslavl, where they lived until July 1608. In the Russian-Polish truce then, by the way, it was decided to send Marina-Marianna to her homeland so that she would not be called the Moscow Tsaritsa. On the way she was captured by Zborovsky and taken to Tushinsky camp. Despite her disgust at the “Tushino thief”, Marina-Marianna secretly married him (September 5, 1608) in the Sapega unit and lived in Tushino for more than a year. She had a bad life with a new husband, as can be seen from her letters to Sigismund and the Pope, but it became even worse after fleeing (December 27, 1609) from Tushin. Fearing to be killed, Marina-Marianna in a hussar dress, with one maid and several hundred Don Cossacks, fled to Dmitrov to Sapega, and from there, when the city was taken by the Russians, to Kaluga, to the “Tushino thief”.A few months later, after the victory of Zolkiewski over the Russian troops, she is with her husband near Moscow, in Kolompa, and after the overthrow of Shuisky is negotiating with Sigismund for help in occupying Moscow. Meanwhile, Muscovites swore allegiance to Vladislav Sigismundovich, and Marina-Marianna was asked to abandon Moscow and limit itself to Sambir or Grodno. A proud refusal followed, and with it a new danger was added - to be captured by the Poles. Having settled in Kaluga with her husband and a new protector, Zarutsky, she lived here until the beginning of 1611, already under the auspices of one of Zarutsky (a “Tushino thief” was killed in December 1610), and with her son Ivan, called Dmitrievich. Until June 1612 it was located near Moscow, mainly in Kolomna, where Zarutsky was also. Marina-Marianna forced Zarutsky and Trubetskoy to declare her son heir to the throne, and together with Zarutsky sent murderers to Pozharsky. Zemstvo militia, which came to Moscow, forced Marina-Marianna to flee first to Ryazan land, then to Astrakhan, and finally up the Yaik (Ural). At the Bear Island, she was overtaken by Moscow archers and, fettered, together with her son, was brought to Moscow in July 1614.Here her four-year-old son was hanged, and she, according to the Russian ambassadors of the Polish government, "died from anguish of her own will"; according to other sources, it is hung or drowned. In memory of the Russian people, Marina-Marianna Mnishek is known as "Marinka the godless", "heretic" and the "witch": Since then forty is considered an unclean bird in Moscow.
