A couple of years after my birth father took his squad to Kiev , the troops of Andrei Bogolyubsky participated in the looting of the city and returned with great booty. Now I understand the harmfulness of the capture of Kiev for peace and unity of the country, but then I was still a baby, and don't even remember universal rejoicing in Novgorod-Seversky and the triumphant return of the father home: me about it then told the Lord Kornily Ivanovich Ivanovich, my uncle-pestun. First intestine war, I remember that happened when I was seven years old — approx. As always happens in such cases, had a big redistribution of tables.
My father waited for this process and decided to grab Chernigov. Come with all squad to town, but he was not let it turned out Svyatoslav prudently left there, brother Yaroslav. Try to take Chernigov attack my father did not, though, I think, could: Svyatoslav squad went to Kiev , and Yaroslav certainly was not enough to resist the powerful Seversky army. But the father chose not to shed blood, and went back to his the city. After learning that his the absence of Chernigov came the team of Oleg Svyatoslavich, he was smitten malice, went with his army to Novgorod-Seversky and besieged the city.
I remember how ominously fires were burning soldiers Svyatoslav Vsevolodovich around our city, and as my father came out from the city gate to parley with his cousin. They seem to even discuss anything not immediately entered into the world, kissed the cross and went to their cities. So, parrot each other and all. Sly Svyatoslav decided to wait.

Imagine, father Nicephorus: such relations between the princes, who called each other brothers, was considered quite normal, and to lay siege to the city brother, to plunder his village or even fight him on the battlefield, nothing wrong was not. Of course, now I realize that the brotherhood of the Russian princes was no more than hypocrisy, and in fact any of them could be like that king of Judah , which killed six of his brothers.

Fortress Kursk was powerful, with thick wooden walls on high waves, but the walls not renovated for a hundred years, dilapidated and rickety. The same thing happened with the princely Palace, built during the first Kursk Prince Iziaslav, son Vladimir Monomakh. But I was a kid, and I didn't care.

It's not far, three or four day journey on horseback, and if hurry, you and two days away. And, of course, dreamed of a beautiful woman, and just about women. Cute Amateur girls I winked, and one, I confess, seduced the young Prince and became the first woman in my life. But after that, I think, in my youth were all so grave a sin it is unlikely. Yes, father Nicephorus, I understand that it is the Lord to decide which sins are serious and which are not.
AND OTHER ESSAYS
But still not cursing himself for his youthful adventure, the libertine and the adulterer was never inunlike many other princes of my age, lost his head from permissiveness. I was to be fulfilled fourteen No, thirteen. It was the six hundred and eighty-eight — approx. In the winter of that year, at the Baptism, went to the Lord my father Oleg Svyatoslavich.
He was only a little over forty. Then I still didn't understand. Now I understand. I think that you will understand, father Nicephorus, if I will briefly tell you the story. Although why you want to know why almost sixty years ago, in the distant Novgorod-Seversky died Prince Oleg? Really interesting? Well, then tell. Another year over a four to my father's death, the Russian troops headed by Rurik and Davyd, Jr. You know, father Nicephorus, who are the sheep? Don't know how they are called in Greek, but I'll explain, and you will certainly understand who we are.

Roman has done a decent act: did not want to give a brother to court and have preferred to leave Kiev and retiring in your Smolensk together with Davyd and Rurik. However, the Novel is still not there other choice: even if he betrayed his brothers, Svyatoslav surely found would some other occasion to present their demands.
The idea is that Svyatoslav Gromov would have gone to Kiev to give the Chernihiv next on the ladder Prince. But the following, as you remember, was my father, and Svyatoslav in any case could not allow the Chernigov Prince was Oleg Svyatoslavich, and wanted to see this place of his brother Yaroslav.

The army my father was ready to go to Chernigov. And here on the eve of the Epiphany he died. Going swimming in the hole, as we have in Russia is conducted for centuries, but never lived up to this day. And it turned out that in Novgorod-Seversky instead of celebrating Baptism mourned Prince Oleg: people loved him very much. Why died Prince?

Yaroslav Vsevolodovich, of course, received Chernigov. In further he is always around to support his brother.
Next the ladder kind of the ol'govichi was the younger brother of my father, Igor. The man I consider to be the main culprit of my troubles and misfortunes. I confess, many times I cursed him and wished him to burn in hell forever.http://xn--27-jlceoalydfe0a7e.xn--p1ai/includes/148.php
