About Ярослав Изяславич


Yaroslav II of Kiev

Yaroslav II Iziaslavich (Ярослав Изяславич in Russian) (died 1180?), Prince of Turov (1146), Novgorod (1148–1154), Lutsk (1157–1180) and Grand Prince of Kiev (1174–1175, 1180). He was the son of Iziaslav II of Kiev and the brother of Mstislav II of Kiev. After the murder of Andrei Bogolyubsky, Yaroslav's relatives managed to maneuver him into the Kievan throne. He contended with a senior relative, Sviatoslav Vsevolodivich, for over two years before Sviatoslav eventually won power for himself and became the uncontested ruler of Kiev.
