Vitenas (or Vitas) nicknamed Volk (The Wolf), having the baptismal name of Roman was a Lithuanian prince, referred to in Russian Chronicles.
According to the Voskresensk Chronicle he was the son of David Rostislavich Prince of Lukomlsk. Some historians consider this information as unreliable. However the same chronicle mentions Vitenas' older brother Gerden, an undeniable historical figure. Gerden is also called son of David Rostislavich in the Novgorod Chronicle, which indirectly confirms the testimony of the Voskresensk Chronicle.
Vitenas was exiled to Greece by Mstislav III of Kiev and returned from Constantinople after several years of exile.
The historic data about Vitenas are often regarded with skepticism.
