  Research Notes:

The Primary Chronicle records the birth of Vsevolod "a fourth son" to Vladimir in 1030. Snorre names "Valdemar, Vissivald and Holte the Bold" as the children of "King Jarisleif" & his wife.

In accordance with the terms of his father's testament, he succeeded in 1054 as Prince of Pereyaslavl, the territory including Rostov, the whole Volga, Oka and Klazma river basin and the region of Bielooziero. He was defeated in [1062] by the Kuman [Cumans], in their first attack against Rus. He was forced out of Pereyaslavl and retreated to Kiev. He was appointed to succeed his brother Sviatoslav as Prince of Chernigov in 1073.

He succeeded his brother in 1076 as VSEVOLOD I Grand Prince of Kiev, but was deposed in 1077 by his older brother Iziaslav. His nephew Oleg Sviatoslavich claimed Chernigov after the death of his father Sviatoslav, but was expelled by Vsevolod in Apr 1078. Oleg returned with support from the Kuman [Cumans] to take Chernigov by force, defeating Vsevolod on the river Sozh, east of Pereyaslavl, 25 Aug 1078. Prince Vsevolod thereupon sought support from his brother Iziaslav, and they defeated Oleg 3 Oct 1078 at Nezhatin Meadow near Chernigov, where Prince Iziaslav was killed. Vsevolod was restored once more as Grand Prince of Kiev in 1078 after Prince Iziaslav's death.

The Primary Chronicle records the death 13 Apr 1093 of Vsevolod son of Yaroslav and his place of burial. 1
