Yaroslav the Wise (978-1054 years.)

Yaroslav the Wise

Prince Yaroslav the Wise Stage of further development of the Old Rus state began during the reign of Yaroslav, nicknamed the Wise contemporaries. He was the third-highest (after Vysheslav and Izyaslav) son Vladimir. His mother was a princess of Polotsk Rogneda. Was born crippled and could not walk at all until a certain time. When it came to his feet, then he went limp. Perhaps, therefore, Yaroslav did not feel special craving for military affairs and has always relied more on diplomacy than arms. Very reluctantly I rode, but happy to have read, studied foreign languages, writing and translating. Polish
