  2. ^ Other source suggests that Yaroslav II Vsevolodovich ruled from 1181 ([1], retrieved on 2009-04-13), but his brother Svyatoslav Vsevolodovich became grand prince of Kiev in 1176 and promoted him to Chernihiv; Dimnik, Martin op. cit. p 137.
  3. ^ a b A number of historians claim Igor Svyatoslavich died in 1202 ([2], retrieved on 2009-04-13); he most probably died in the spring of 1201, because most chronicles place the news of his death as the first entry for the year; Dimnik, Martin op. cit p. 237.
  4. ^ Some historians claim Gleb Svyatoslavich died in 1219 ([3], retrieved on 2009-04-13); he was last mentioned under 1215 and he died between 1215 and 1220; Dimnik, Martin op. cit p. 291.
  5. ^ Under the year 1261, the chronicles report that prince Vasilko Romanovich of Vladimir-Volynsky married his daughter Olga to Andrei Vsevolodovich of Chernigov. Based on this report, some historians claim that Andrei Vsevolodovich was the prince of Chernigov between 1245 and 1261 ([4], retrieved on 2009-04-13). However, the chronicler's identification of Andrei as a prince of Chernigov merely signified that he was an Olgovich (a member of the dynasty of Chernigov); Dimnik, Martin op. cit p. 380.
  6. ^ The Lyubetskiy sinodik speaks of a certain "Lavrenty Vsevolod Yaropolchi"; R. V. Zotov suggests that Vsevolod succeeded Mikhail Vsevolodovich to Chernigov from 1246 to 1263(see also: [5], retrieved on 2009-04-13); the chronicles, however, do not support Zotov's assertions; Dimnik, Martin op. cit p. 380.
