Early source information

Nicholas Zharkikh

Early records of the death of Prince Michael Vsevolodovich, dating from the middle of the 13th century, do not have the characteristics of the later SMF, but they served as material for the SMF.

Therefore, I consider it appropriate to present here again these generally well-known and easily accessible texts, to which I will refer many times.

Hypatian Chronicle

Laurentian Chronicle

John of Plano Carpini

Wilhelm Rubruk
