He was appointed Prince of Tver 1247 by his uncle Sviatoslav Grand Prince of Vladimir, the principality acquiring its own bishop some time during his reign. Prince of Pskov in 1253. In 1255, "the men of Novgorod led him from Pskov and set him on the throne" in Novgorod in opposition to Prince Alexander his brother, the latter reasserting his position later the same year. He succeeded his brother in 1263 as IAROSLAV Grand Prince of Vladimir. He was installed as Prince of Novgorod in 1264 after "the men of Novgorod … drove out" his nephew Dmitry. Novgorod asserted its autonomy against Prince Iaroslav by refusing to accept the prince's wishes which it considered against its commercial interests. Prince Iaroslav's authority was undermined when the Mongols supported Novgorod in the dispute (presumably as a result of bribery), obliging him in 1269 to negotiate new trading terms for the city. These new terms subsequently proved crucial to Rus recovery after the period of Mongol oppression in particular the new rules governing the visits of foreign merchants .

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yaroslav_of_Tver

Yaroslav III was the first Prince of Tver and the tenth Grand Prince of Vladimir from 1264 to 1271. Yaroslav and his son Mikhail Yaroslavich presided over Tver's transformation from a sleepy village into one of the greatest centres of power in medieval Russia. All the later dukes of Tver descended from Yaroslav Yaroslavich.

He was a son of Yaroslav II and younger brother of Alexander Nevsky. In 1247, while still a minor, he received from his uncle the town of Tver.

In 1252, Yaroslav and his brother Andrey seized Alexander's capital, Pereslavl-Zalessky. Reinforced by Tatar units, Alexander presently fought it back, taking prisoner Yaroslav's children and leaving his wife as a casualty on the field of battle. Yaroslav fled to Ladoga whence he was summoned by Novgorodians to succeed Alexander as their military commander. In 1258 he visited the khan's capital in Sarai, and two years later led the Novgorod army against the Teutonic Knights.

Upon Alexander's death in 1263, Yaroslav quarrelled with Andrey as to who should become Grand Duke next. They went to the Golden Horde for arbitration, which was in favour of Yaroslav. The latter, however, settled in Novgorod and married a daughter of one local boyar. Various Novgorodian factions still conspired against him and sought to place his brother Vasily of Kostroma or Alexander's son Dmitri of Pereslavl on the throne.

In 1270, the armies of three princes stood for a week near the town of Staraya Russa, ready for battle. The metropolitan, however, managed to reconcile them. Yaroslav, on surrendering Novgorod to his nephew, accompanied him to Sarai and died on his way back to Tver on September 9, 1271. He was succeeded in Tver by his eldest son Svyatoslav and then by a more famous one, Mikhail Yaroslavich.
