He was the youngest son of Svyatoslav II Yaroslavich grand prince of Kyiv and Oda. His sons were Rostislav, prince of Ryazan; Yurii, appanage prince of Murom; Svyatoslav, appanage prince of Murom; and his daughter was Maria, and he may have had still more sons. He is shown with his father on this chart. His family is shown on this chart. When the family agreed to the division of the spoils in Rus at the Liubich conference, Yaroslav received the Murom and Ryazan lands, then the least important and furtherest to the northeast of the main region around the Dniper. But we can trace his descendents through Rostislav at Ryazan down to the bitter end in the mid 1500's.
