IGOR Iaroslavich ([1036]-1060).

In accordance with the terms of his father's testament, he succeeded in 1054 as Prince of Volynia.

He succeeded his brother Viacheslav in 1057 as Prince of Smolensk.

The Primary Chronicle records the death of Igor son of Yaroslav in 1060[181].

m ---. The name of Igor´s wife is not known (listed as Konigunda, Countess of Orlamunde in Wikipedia). Igor & his wife had two children:

1. David Igorevich (b. c.1055, d. 25 July 1113 Dorogobuzh, married with one child, Prince of Dorogobuzh)

2. Vsevolod Igorevich (married with one child)

From the Wikipedia page on Igor Yaroslavich:


Igor Yaroslavich was one of the younger sons of Yaroslav the Wise from the Rurikid dynasty of Kievan Rus’. He was baptized as George.

The date of his birth is unsure. Some historians consider him to be born in 1034-35, while others think that he was born after Yaroslav moved to Kiev in 1036. (Russian Wikipedia notes that Tatischev believes that the prince is the sixth son of Yaroslav the Wise born in 1036, but the author believes it to have been in Novgorod.)

Upon the death of his father Iziaslav I of Kiev who was the eldest at that time appointed him as the Prince of Volyn. When another of his brother Vyacheslav has died under unknown circumstances, Igor was transferred to Smolensk. Around that time Rostislav of Tmutarakan was given his former realm to govern.

As his other brother Vyacheslav Igor died young when he was only 24, leaving behind two of his minors Davyd and Vsevolod. Igor was married to a countess of Orlamünde; the wedding with whom was conducting while Yaroslav the Wise was around.

(Russian Wikipedia notes that after his death in Smolensk, the principality underwent civil war. Igor was buried in either Teremtsy, Chernigov's Cathedral of the Transfiguration, or in the Red Chamber of its tower. Jan Dlugosh recently proposed that Igor Yaroslavich died when Polish King Boleslav II the Bold marched against Russia, but the author of the Wikipedia article doesn't agree with this proposal.)


1. Davyd Igorevich, the Prince of Volyn (1086-1099). Davyd was constantly in war with the neighboring Vasylko from Terebovl.

2. Vsevolod Igorevich
