Introduction:

The main features of Russian history to the beginning of the 11th century.

On 15 July 1015 he died a great Prince of Kiev Vladimir svyatoslavovych 1, the fourth in the dynasty of Rurik, lived for a little more than 50 years. Vladimir at this time was alive 11 sons. His eldest son from Polotsk Princess Rogneda Yaroslav wasn't going to give up their rights to the throne of Kiev. But there were also Svyatopolk, Yaroslav birth older, stepson of Vladimir, son, son killed his brother Yaropolk.

Each of the brothers and at the court, and in those places where they "sat" on the principalities had its own party, was his squad, ready to support candidates for Kyiv table. But while he was alive Vladimir, dynastic contradictions between his heirs been so acute, although there were already some signs of impending drama.

Together with Vladimir went back a whole era – perhaps the swivel — in the history of Ancient Russia. And like any rotary era with the departure of its inspirer and designer she promised to result in new hardships and for the dynasty and the country. The past is still firmly held the present and the future of Russia.

By the time of the death of Vladimir of Rus, after experiencing considerable turmoil, has become one of the strongest powers in Eastern Europe. Vladimir inherited together with the Kiev table, at least age-old and glorious history of the United state of the Eastern Slavs. Clearly define the external boundaries of this state. To the early 11th century in the Russia includes almost all the major East Slavic tribal unions, and inhabited the Eastern European plain in the North, North-West and North-East of the Finno-Ugric and Baltic tribes to the South and South-Eastern Turkic. Russia by this time was a multiethnic state in which other, non-Slavic peoples were tributaries and allies, and the rightful inhabitants of the vast country. Linked together state the will of the Kievan princes, common life, economic and trade interests, as well as the need to defend themselves from external enemies, many former East Slavic and foreign tribes and tribal Confederation for several decades, existed in the same state, sharing with him the history, achievements, successes and his failures.

By the beginning of the 11th century, clearly delineated the borders of Russia: in the North of the land of Novgorod close to the possessions of Karelia on the shores of the Gulf of Finland and lake Nevo (Ladoga lake); in the North-West of Novgorod and Polotsk lands bordered the lands of the Baltic tribes in the middle course of the Neman and the Western Dvina. In the West the Russian-Polish border has stabilized in the middle reaches of the Western bug, and the next line Dorogichin – Berestye — Cherven – Przemysl. "Cervenka city" went to Russia, and on the other side stretched Mazovia and lesser Poland with the cities of Lubliner and Sandomierz, then the boundary ran along the middle reaches of the southern bug, Dniester and Prut. Southern possession of Russia rested in the defensive system of the cities and fortresses, founded by Vladimir in a struggle against the Pechenegs.

By the beginning of 11th century Russia, stabilizing its borders with its neighbors were designated as a single East Slavic state.

YAROSLAV THE WISE

( Life approx. 988 – 1054. Board – 1017 – 1054гг. )

Novgorod Prince Yaroslav was the third son of Grand Prince St. Vladimir married Princess of Polotsk Rogneda with Reguladoras. In childhood Jaroslav injured leg, was lame, and in consequence it was pokazyvali "lame". To reign by the will of the father Yaroslav began in Rostov, then changed in Novgorod brother Vysheslav.

To 1014 includes references in the annals of Yaroslav the desire to separate from the Kiev Grand Duchy. It can be assumed that this Prince encouraged the local nobility, always taps Novgorod special situation within the Russian lands and has not been away once again, after Prince Oleg, to show Kiev who is who in this country. Not the last role was played by personal motives of Yaroslav. He could not know about the massacre of St. Vladimir with his whole family Polotsk Prince Rogvolod, the father of his mother, forcibly taken by Vladimir's wife, and then expelled along with the children from Kiev. Besides, out of three thousand hryvnias collected annually as tribute two thousand had to send to Kiev. With that Yaroslav began: and tribute in the Grand Treasury, and tithes to the capital has not been sent. Saint Vladimir, realizing that good at Novgorod in obedience does not lead, began preparations for the war against the son.
