Mikhail Yaroslavich, Prince of Tver, was born in 1271 in Tver, Russia.[1] He was the son of Yaroslav III, the first Prince of Tver and the tenth Grand Prince of Vladmir, and Yaroslav's second wife, Xenia of Tarusa.[2]

Mikhail married Anna Dmitrievna (of Roztov) in 1294. Their children were:

Prince Dmitry Mikhaylovich of Tver (1299–1326)
Prince Alexander of Tver (1301–1339)
Prince Konstantin of Tver (1306–1346)
Prince Vasily of Kashin (d. after 1368)
Feodora of Tver

Mikhail became the Grand Prince of Vladimir in 1304. He was confirmed in office by Tokhta, Khan of the Golden Horde.[3] Mikhail attended the ascension of Uzbeg Khan to the throne in 1313 and remained in Sarai two years.

Yury of Moscow gained favor in Novgorod while Mikhail was away. On Mikhail's return to Russia he regained control with the aid of Uzbeg. But the following year Yury married the Khan's sister and obtained the patent of office, Grand Prince of Vladimir.[4] Uzbeg backed Yury militarily against Mikhail, but on December 22, 1317 Mikhail defeated Yury and captured the Khan's sister, Yury's wife. She died unexpectedly in his custody. Mikhail was accused of murdering her, withholding tribute and warring against his Mongol overlords.


Mikhail and Yury were both summoned to the Golden Horde. Mikhail was executed by the horde on November 22, 1318.[5]
