By moving the cursor over the table you can find which individuals are linked directly to the biographical texts. And those not so linked can be reached by starting with their father or grandfather. As the youngest son of Svyatoslav Yaroslavich, Yaroslav was given the family domain in the then least important and most remote regions, Murom and Ryazan. But Ryazan in particular became quite important when the entire northeastern region around the Oka and Volga rivers became the center of the new Russia. The Ryazan princes first had to deal with the Monomashchi princes of Suzdal and Vladimir. Then they bore the brunt of the Tatar campaigns after 1240. Finally they were in conflict with the princes of Moscow, especially after Dmitri Donskoi. Nevertheless the one family managed to hold on to power through 17 generations right up to the final absorbtion of all the appanage principalities by Moscow in the 1550's.
