Aleksandr Vasilyevich (c1298-1332) - Prince of Suzdal (1309-1331), Grand Prince of Vladimir (1328 - 1331), son of Vasili Andreyevich of Suzdal , (according to other sources, the eldest son of Vasili Mikhailovich Prince of Suzdal).
Biography He supported the Tver prince Mikhail Yaroslavich in his struggle against the prince Moscow Yuri Danilovich . Then he became an ally of Ivan Danilovich Kalita . Participated in the last punitive campaign against Tver , where the anti-Tatar insurrection broke out (1327). As a result, it was Alexander Vasilievich, evidently specially as a weak prince, Khan Uzbek issued a label to Vladimir and the Volga region (probably Nizhny Novgorod and Gorodets ), and behind Ivan Kalita left the second half of the Grand Duchy - Kostroma and Veliky Novgorod. However, this step did not lead to the strengthening of the insignificant Suzdal princedom (unlike the similar situation a decade later), but "the foundation of claims to the Grand Duke's title of Nizhny Novgorod-Suzdal princes" was laid  . The real role in the all-Russian affairs was left for Ivan Kalita . Moscow chronicles of Alexander do not even mention, and Novgorod (the main source of information) is not called great.
Alexander Vasilievich took part in Ivan's voknjaniezheniya in Novgorod and in the campaign against Pskov , against the prince of Tver Alexander Mikhailovich ( 1329 ) , who was hiding there . Moved from Vladimir to Suzdal Veche bell of the Assumption Cathedral. In the new place the bell did not ring, which was perceived as an evil sign, and the bell was returned back.
After the death Suzdal was inherited by his younger brother Konstantin Vasilievich , and Nizhny Novgorod and Gorodets as part of the Vladimir Grand Duchy passed to Ivan Kalita .
