Volodar′ Rostislavich

b. unknown – d. 1124 [1]


Rostislav Vladimirich [2]


Lanka daughter of Bela I of Hungary [3]



This marriage exists in Baumgarten’s genealogy, [9] but his only citation is to an older article of his own. In that article, Baumgarten says explicitly that Volodar′ ’s wife’s identity is unknown, though some have suggested the name Laura. [10] I have been able to find no other evidence of a marriage between Volodar′ and a princess of Pomerania, so at this time this marriage cannot be accepted, though it must be noted that he does have children, and as such there must have been a partner of some sort.

  6. Kniaz′ of Peremyshl′: PVL s.a. 1097.; Volodar definitely occupies Peremyshl′ by 1097, however with the death of his brother, Riurik, in 1092, it is possible that the territory passed to him at that time. The 1097 entry merely confirms his possession of it.; Velikaia Khronika, glava 28.[↑]
