Vsevolod Mstislavich of Volhynia was born 1160 to Mstislav II Izyaslavich of Kiev (c1125-1170) and Agnes of Poland (1137-c1182) . Charlemagne (747-814), Alfred the Great (849-899), Rollo of Normandy (860-932), Alfred the Great (849-899)/s, Charlemagne (747-814)/s.

Vsevolod (Dmitry) Mstislavich (after 1155 - 1195 ) - Princes of Belz (1170-1195), Princes of Volhynia (1188) is the son of Mstislav Izyaslavich of Kiev, the younger brother of Roman Mstislavich of Halych


After the death of their father, his three brothers, he kept the western districts of the Principality of Volhynia (Roman became a prince of Volhynia, Vsevolod prince of Belz, Svyatoslav Prince of Beresteya and Vladimir Prince of Cherven) [1]) ), although he participated in the military actions of his uncle, Yaroslav Lutskiy , in the early 1170s his struggle for Kiev. After the death of the two younger brothers, Berestye was integrated into the Principality of Volhynia and [[Cherven[[ into the Principality of Belzs

After the first departure of Roman in Galich (1188) Vsevolod became Volyn Prince, as the next brother by birth , but Roman could not stay there and he returned to Volhynia. Vsevolod became stronger in Vladimir. Roman's attempt to return the throne with the help of the Poles was not successful, and only after the intervention of Roman's father-in-law, Rurik Rostislavich , prince of the urchin and co-ruler of the Grand Duke of Kiev Svyatoslav Vsevolodovich , Vsevolod gave in.

The second phase of Roman's struggle for Halych and the new departure from Volhynia (1199) took place after Vsevolods death, but thanks to his short reign in 1188, Vsevolod's sons did not become outlaws and could successfully claim the Volyn throne after the Roman's death in 1205, as they also had the advantage of being older than Roman;s sons.
