Davyd Ihorovych

Davyd Ihorovych, 1059–1112. Son of Prince Ihor Yaroslavych of Volodymyr-Volynskyi and grandson of Prince Yaroslav the Wise. In 1084 the grand prince of Kyiv, Vsevolod Yaroslavych, bestowed the town of Dorohobuzh, Volhynia, on Davyd Ihorovych as an appanage; in 1085 he was given the town of Volodymyr-Volynskyi. Davyd Ihorovych attempted to wrest Galicia away from princes Volodar Rostyslavych and Vasylko Rostyslavych; in 1097 he blinded Vasylko. Set upon by the princes for this act, Davyd fled to Poland. He made several attempts to recover Volodymyr-Volynskyi but was finally deprived of this possession at the Vytychiv congress of princes. However, he was given other towns in Volhynia: Busk, Ostroh, Dubno, and later Dorohobuzh, where he died.
