Abstract

The article attempts to analyze the life path of one of the Pereiaslav princes, who occupied the princely table of Pereiaslavl of Rus’ in the beginning of the XIII century. It was Yaroslav-Fedir Vsevolodovych, one of the sons of Volodymyr-Suzdal prince Vsevolod Yaroslavych. He began his career as a prince from Pereiaslav of Rus’. Having arrived in Pereiaslav very young (at the age of 11), Yaroslav Vsevolodovych was a good military school here. He repeatedly carried out military operations against the Polovtsian troops, waged campaigns against them. Also in Pereiaslav he married the daughter of Polovtsian Khan Yuri Konchakovych. Life, military-political, and administrative experience gained in Pereiaslav allowed Yaroslav Vsevolodovych to successfully manage the various princely tables in Rus’. Among them are not only Pereslavl Zalieskiy, Ryazan, Torzhok, Novgorod and Volodymyr of Suzdal, but also Kyiv. Most often he occupied the princely table of Novgorod – four times.
Yaroslav Vsevolodovych was an active participant in one of the greatest battles in the history of Eastern Europe during the Middle Ages. He was an ally of his brother Yuri Vsevolodovych in the battle on the river Lipitsa in April 1216, which they lost. During this battle, Yaroslav Vsevolodovych lost his gold plated helmet and chain mail, which was accidentally
found at the battlefield only in 1808. Yaroslav Vsevolodovych belongs to the number of princes who survived the campaign of the Mongol-Tatar troops on the territory of Rus’. He was the first among the n princes in 1243 received from the hands of Khan Batu label for the great Volodymyr of Suzdal prince, and in addition, even to Kyiv. However, in 1246 he was summoned to the Horde, then sent to Karakorum, where he was poisoned. Yaroslav Vsevolodovych was one of the brightest statesmen of Rus’ in the first half of the XIII century.
