In this paper we study the equations of motion of a rigid body around a fixed point in the case of Kovalevskaya. We give interpretation of the 'mysterious substitution of variables' in Sofia Kovalevskaya's paper. The present paper also connects integration procedure proposed by Golubov with the original equations obtained by S. Kovalevskaya.
