Mstislav II of Kiev


Mstislav II of Kiev
Assumption Cathedral in Volodymyr-Volynskyi was built by Mstislav in 1160.

Mstislav II Izyaslavich (Мстислав Изяславич in Russian) (died 1172), Kniaz' (Prince) of Pereyaslav, Volodymyr-Volynsky and Velikiy Kniaz (Grand Prince) of Kiev (1167–1169, 1170). Son of Izyaslav Mstislavich, Velikiy Kniaz' (Grand Prince) of Kiev.

Along with his father, he participated in the wars against Yury Dolgoruky and the Chernigov princes. After an initial victory against the Cumans in 1153, Mstislav was defeated by the Cumans at the Psyol river. Yury Dolgoruky forced him to flee to Poland in 1155, but the next year Mstislav returned with a new army and defeated Dolgoruky at Volodymyr-Volynsky. Dolgoruky died in 1157, and Mstislav had himself crowned at Volodymyr-Volynsky.

In 1151 Mstislav married Agnes, the daughter of Duke Boleslaus III of Poland. They had three sons:

  1. Roman Mstislavich (c. 1152–1205)
  2. Sviatoslav Mstislavich, Prince of Brest
  3. Vsevolod Mstislavich of Volhynia, Prince of Belz, Prince of Volodymyr-Volynsky (died 1196)

His death is reported in 1172 in the book Heraldry of the Royal Families of Europe, Jiri Louda and Michael Maclagan. Clarkson N Potter, New York 1981 in Table 135
