He and Razkoljna established themselves as the true leaders of the their tribe and fed on the strongest warriors and slayed any who dared to oppose them, but the coming of Christian missionaries to Polish lands brought an end to their rule. Rumors of a tribe led by “demons” had spread far and wide.
