One of the Russian heroes with magical powers to transform himself and others. At the age of one and a half years old he spoke his first words. He told his mother to adorn him with shinning armour, a golden helmet and a heavy mace. He learnt quickly as he grew up and mastered the skills of combat. At the age of 15 he gathered and army that was 7,000 strong. This took him three years. They heard the king of India was to advance to Russia and defeat them. Volkh Vseselavevich then set off on a journey to launch an attack on the King first. Every night he would change into a wolf or falcon to bring back meat for his army to eat. When they got to India, Volkh Vseselavevich transformed into a bull and he roamed the land to survey it for battle. He then arrived at the palace of the king and transformed into a flacon. He perched on the window sill of the king’s room and overheard the queen tell her husband that Volkh Vseselavevich and his army was approaching. Knowing that the king knew of his advances, Volkh Vseselavevich transformed into a stoat and destroyed the weapons in the king’s armoury. When the army advanced they saw that the king was hiding behind his walls of which no army could penetrate. Volkh Vseselavevich transformed his army into ants who went through the tiny cracks in the wall. Once through the wall they turned back into men who killed everyone inside save 7,000 maidens who became wives to the 7,000 warriors.

Did you find Volkh Vseselavevich interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a beautiful, lovely illustration of the Friendly Volkh Vseselavevich and send it to this website. Interested in more Russian legend? A great cartoon called Dobrynya Nikitich and Zemy Gorynych (2006) is a Russian children's animation with Dragons and other Russian mythical beings. But for those who love Vampires, lets not forget that Eastern Europe is their birth place. No film quite gives the Vampire spooks like Nosferatu (1922). However if you like it modern, Day Watch and Night Watch are interesting Vampire alternatives. Also the fantasy tabletop game Warhammer features an army called Vampire Counts which has been greatly inspired by Eastern European beliefs and culture.
