Igor Yaroslavich Rurik of Volhynia was born 1036 in Veliky Novgorod, Novgorod Oblast, Russia to Yaroslav I Vladimirovich of Kiev (c978-1054) and Ingegerd Olofsdotter of Sweden (1001-1050) and died 1060 Smolensk, Smolensk Oblast, Russia of unspecified causes. He married Kunigunde of Orlamünde .

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

Like his other brother Vyacheslav, Igor died young when he was only 24, leaving behind two minor sons [[Davyd and Vsevolod.
