This layout shows the relationships between the many offshoots of the family of Rurik - Igor. It also shows the paths between the individual genological tables into which we have divided the numerous related lines. Each chart shows several generations of the extended family ruling in particular locations such as Smolensk or Ryazan. the viewer can 'click' on a name on the chart to jump to a description of the individual. Please move your cursor over a box to link to those charts. All the individuals are linked to each other through fathers and sons, so one may move from Rurik to Nicholas II. In this diagram we see that there were three major family lines that extended for a considerable number of centuries. (There were 20 generations from Rurik and Ivan IV. ) These were the family of the Svyatoslavichi whose two separated branches ruled Chernigiv and Ryazan, plus many smaller towns in between; and the two branches of the Monomashchi - Yuri Dolgoruki ruling Rostov-Suzdal and eventually all northeast Russia; and Mstislav the Great ruling Galicia and Volynia, after the earlier branches of Rurikid princes there had died out. These three clans struggled to place members on the throne of Kyiv up to the Mongol conquest. They also were in competition to place a member on the throne at Novgorod. The family of Izyaslav Vladimirovich broke off immediately to rule independent Polotsk: the only principality not ruled by descendents of Vladimir's other son, Yaroslav the Wise. The families of Vladimir and Igor Yaroslavich, ruling in Galicia, both ended in a very few generations, as did that of Izyaslav I at Turov. The descriptions of each individual prince provide a convenient separate file to which we will add material as we find it in various references. We are preparing also files to show marriages, and lists of the rulers at each major town.
