Yaroslav Svyatopolkovich (Yaroslavets) (baptized Ioann) [1], (c1072-May 1123) - Prince of Volhynia (1100-1118). The son of Prince Svyatopolk Izyaslavich of Kiev. Some researchers believe that he was born from a concubine like his brother Mstislav, others that his mother was the legitimate wife of Svyatopolk Izyaslavich [2]..


After the decision of the Council of Uvetichi to deprive Davyd Igorevich of Principality of Volhynia for the blinding of Vasilko Rostislavich Terebovly in 1100, he became the viceroy of his father, the Grand Prince of Kiev, in Volhynia. In 1102, Svyatopolk reached an agreement with Vladimir Monomakh, then Prince of Pereyaslavl, about Yaroslav's transfer to Novgorod, and Vladimir's eldest son Mstislav to Volnynia, but the Novgorodians sent the grand prince of Kiev a reply: " If your son has two heads, send him to us ."

After the Svyatopolk's death and the reign of Vladimir Monomakh (1113) in Kiev, Yaroslav 4 years continued to rule Volhynia, but in 1117 Vladimir Monomakh transferred Mstislav Vladimirovich, who had already become a father-in-law of Yaroslav, from Novgorod to Belgorod-Kievsky, in which historians see the likely cause of the conflict between Yaroslav and Monomakh, as Yaroslav feared for his hereditary rights to Kiev. Yaroslav sent his wife (daughter of Mstislav, granddaughter of Vladimir Monomakh) to Belgorod and began to prepare for the struggle. In 1118, Vladimir Monomakh, in alliance with Rostislavich, expelled Yaroslav from Vladimir-Volynsky, the Volhynian prince became Roman Vladimirovich , and after his death (1119 Andrei V. Good. Yaroslav tried to regain possession with the help of Hungarian and Polish troops, as well as the Rostislavichs who had crossed over to his side, but without success. In 1123 he died under the walls of Vladimir-Volynsky from the wounds inflicted on him by two Polish soldiers during the siege.
