Konstantin Dobrynich was a posadnik of Veliky Novgorod, son and successor of the famous Dobryny. He was declared a posadnik in 1017 .

In 1018, Yaroslav the Wise, having suffered a defeat in the south from Boleslaw the Brave and Svyatopolk, fled to Novgorod and prepared to flee further, "beyond the sea." But Konstantin Dobrynich and the Novgorodians, after cutting his court, told the prince that they wanted to fight for him with Boleslaw and Svyatopolk. They raised money, hired Varangians, and armed themselves. Despite this service, Yaroslav in 1019 got angry at Constantine for some reason and imprisoned him for 3 years in Rostov. Then he was transferred to Murom and there, on the Oka River, he was killed in 1022.[1][2]
