Please move your cursor over the individual names to read short descriptions. All the princes are linked with fathers and sons so that you may follow the geneology from Rurik to Fedor Ivanovich.Igor was the youngest son of Yaroslav Vladimirovich, prince of Kyiv, and Ingigerda, daughter of King Olaf of Sweden. He was sent to rule at Vladimir-in-Volynia. From this far western Rus territory he didn't cause much trouble. But his son, David Igor'yevich, was a first class troublemaker. Despite the family agreement that established territories for each of the descendents of Yaroslav Vladimirovich, David promptly conived to get his cousin, Svyatopolk Izyaslavich, who was ruling at Kyiv, to help him wage war on the two sons of Rostislav Vladimirovich, who held towns in Galicia, Volodar and Vasil'ko. Eventually David was thwarted in his ambitions and instead began a campaign into Poland, where he died in battle. His son, Vsyevoldko Davidovich, received the consolation prize, rule of Gorodno, (Grodno). As you can see the family died out comparatively soon.
