The problem of the Principality of Chernigov
Svyatoslav Vsevolodich reigned in Kiev since 1117, however, the Ipatiev Chronicle under the year 1178 reports that Svyatoslav Vsevolodich lived in Chernigov, having arrived from Kiev; Yaroslav Vsevolodich ruled in Chernigov, and Igor Svyatoslavich - in Novgorod-Seversky only in connection with the death of Oleg. According to Presnyakov AE , Svyatoslav Vsevolodich, taking Kiev, conceded Chernigov neither to Oleg nor to his brother Yaroslav, because, in 1164, Oleg refused Chernigov only in favor of Svyatoslav Vsevolodich, but not Yaroslav Vsevolodich. According to L.Voytovich , Oleg reigned in Chernigov from 1178 to his death in 1180.
