About Marija Nagaja

Maria Feodorovna Nagaya (Russian: Мария Фёдоровна Нагая) (died 1608) was a Russian tsarina and eighth (uncanonical) wife of Ivan the Terrible.

Maria married Ivan IV in 1581 and a year later gave birth to their son Dmitry. After the Tsar's death in 1584, Nagaya, her son and her brothers were sent into exile to Uglich by Boris Godunov, where she lived until the mysterious death of tsarevich Dmitry in 1591. Maria and her relatives were accused of "criminal negligence" and, as a result, her brothers were incarcerated and she was made a nun in a monastery. In 1605, after the accession of False Dmitriy I in Moscow, Nagaya was forced to "recognize" him as her son and returned to Moscow. All of her family members were freed, reinstated in their ranks and given their confiscated property. After the death of False Dmitriy I in 1606, Maria Nagaya renounced him as her son.

О Марии Фёдоровне Нагой (русский)Нагая,_Мария_Фёдоровна

Дочь окольничего Фёдора Фёдоровича Нагого-Федца. Её дядей был русский посол в Крыму, дипломат и близкий приближенный царя - Афанасий Нагой, что видимо, и способствовало браку

Различные источники дают разные даты смерти Марии Фёдоровны: 1608, 1610, 1612. Однако сохранившееся в Кремле надгробие гласит:

«Лета 7116 (1611) месяца июня в 28 преставися раба божия инока царица Маря Феодоровна всея Русии царя Ивана»
