Andrey III Alexandrovich (ca. 1255 – 27 July 1304) was a Russian prince, son of Alexander Nevsky, who received from his father the town of Gorodets on the Volga. In 1276, he added Kostroma to his possessions and joined the struggle for Grand Duchy of Vladimir-Suzdal. In 1281 Andrey, joining the Mongol army, expelled his elder brother Dmitri from Vladimir. After some feasting with Mongols in Vladimir, Andrey went to Novgorod, where he was heartily welcomed by populace. Meanwhile, his brother allied himself with the powerful Nogai Khan, who reinstated Dmitry as Grand Duke of Vladimir in 1283. During the following decade, Andrey thrice brought the Mongols to Russia in order to wrestle Vladimir from his brother. In the campaign of 1293 they pillaged 14 Russian towns, finally forcing Dmitry to abdicate. Even when elevated to the grand ducal throne of Vladimir, Andrey continued to live in Gorodets. During the last decade of his reign he struggled with a league formed by Daniel of Moscow, Mikhail of Tver, and Ivan of Pereslavl.

Об Андрее Александровиче Городецком (русский)

Про Андрея Александровича написано в книге "Младший сын" Дмитрия Балашова. В книге гово-рится, что человек который подталкивал Андрея против брата Дмитрия был Семён Топильевич, который принадлежал к роду старых владимирских великих бояр, выходцев из Киева. Он чудом спасся во время Батыева погрома, потерял отца и братьев, долго был в Орде, где научился бег-ло говорить по-татарски и по-персидски. В Орде он женился на татарке. Он несколько раз подго-варивал Андрея приводить с Орды войска с которыми часто грабил Русскую землю. Дмитрий в конце концов приказал убить Семёна Топильевича.
