During the life of his father

In 1145, after the death of his uncle, the Prince of Murom Svyatoslav Yaroslavich, Gleb Rostislavich was sent by the father to reign in Ryazan [3], and Rostislav Yaroslavich himself began to reign in Murom .

In 1146 the [Suzdal princes Rostislav and Andrei of Bogolyuovo besieged Ryazan. As a result, Gleb, along with his father, Rostislav Yaroslavich, had to flee to the Polovtsians [4]. But already in 1148 Rostislav managed to return Ryazan, and in 1151, Murom. Then Gleb again became his father's deputy in Ryazan .

Reign in Ryazan

After Rostislav's death (1153), Vladimir Svyatoslavich , the son of his brother, was established in Ryazan. Only after his death Gleb managed to establish himself in Ryazan, having reconciled, however, with the separation of the Principality of Murom which was ruled by the descendants of Vladimir.

In 1159 the prince founded the city of Glebov.

In 1169, Mstislav Izyaslavich, the eldest of Monomakhovichi, Vladimir Mstislavich, expelled from Kiev, took over, with the permission of Andrei of Bogolyuovo, Mstislav's main opponent.

In 1174, in the struggle for power in the Grand Principality of Vladimir-Suzdal after Andrei of Bogolyuovo's death, he supported the brothers of his wife Mstislav Rostislavich of Rostov and Yaropolk Rostislavich against their uncles Mikhalko Yuryevich and Vsevolod Yurevich.

In 1176, Gleb sent his nephew, Yuri Rostislavich's son, against the Prince of Chernigov Oleg Svyatoslavich. The battle ended in favor of the Ryazan.

In 1177, after Mikhalko Yuryevich's death, incited by his brother-in-law Mstislav Rostislavich, Gleb stated a campaign against Vsevolod Yuryevich, Grand Prince of Vladimir-Suzdal, burned Moscow [5][6], robbed Bogolyubovo, but was defeated in the Battle of the Koloksha River (1177), and together he was taken prisoner with his son, then taken to Vladimir and imprisoned.

The husband of Gleb's daughter, Mstislav Rostislavich, demanded his release and formed an alliance with this goal. Gleb Rostislavich was offered freedom with the condition to abandon Ryazan and leave for Southern Russia, but he rebelled, saying: "I will not die eating, I'm not going." As a result, he soon died in prison.





Yevfrosiniya Rostislavovna (c1130-1179) is the daughter of Rostislav Yuryevich .
