Ivan Yurievich Turovsky - Prince of Turov in the 12th century, mentioned in 1167 - 1170, the son of the Prince of Turov, Yuri Yaroslavich and his wife Anna, the daughter of the prince of the city of Vsevolodko Davydovich.


Ivan was the grandson of Prince of Volhynia Yaroslav Svyatopolchich. Refers to the first generation of Princes of Turov who ruled after the division of the Principality of Turov into possessions. Of the five sons of Yuri Yaroslavich, Ivan appears in the annals of the second in time. The mention in the annals of "Gyurgevich Ivan from Turov" gives grounds for believing that he himself was directly in the appanage Principality of Turov (In the annals he and his two brothers are mentioned with the definition "Turovsky", "from Turov") [1].

In the Resurrection Chronicle it is mentioned under 1167, in Gustynsky Chronicle - under 1168 year. Together with other princes of Russia, he opposed the Polovtsians, who robbed the merchant caravans on the Dnieper that they sailed from Byzantium :

"... And then, according to the little ambassador, Mstislav took his brother, and all the brothers in Kiev got him: Yaroslav from Luchsk, Volodymyr Andreyevich from Dorogobuzh, Rurik from Vruchogo , Davyd from Vyshegorod and Gyurgevich Ivan from Turov ."

In 1170 Ivan participated again in the campaign against the Polovtsians [1] .

According to the Ipatiev Chronicle, in 1170 he helped Prince Mstislav Izyaslavich to occupy the throne of Kiev, from which he had ousted by the order of the Grand Princes of Vladimir-Suzdal Andrei Yuryevich of Bogolyubovo[2] .

The year of death is unknown.

Marriage and children

The name of Ivan Yurevich's wife is unknown. Information about children is controversial - in the beginning of the 13th century several princes of Turov without patronymics are mentioned. L. Voitovich suggests that the son of Ivan could be the Prince of Turov Andrei Ivanovich, executed by the Mongols after the defeat of the unified Russian-Polovtsian army in the Battle of the Kalka River (1223) [3]. .
