Yury, or rather George in English, was the sixth son of Vladimir Monomakh. Although his birthdate is uncertain, some chronicles report that Yury's elder brother, Vyacheslav, said to him: "I am much older than you; I was already bearded when you were born." Since Vyacheslav was born in the early 1080s, this pushes Yury's birth to c. 1099/1100. The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ...

In 1108, Yury was sent by his father to govern the vast Rostov-Suzdal province in the north-east of Kievan Rus'. In 1121, he quarelled with the boyars of Rostov and moved the capital of his lands from that city to Suzdal. As the area was sparsely populated, Yury founded many a fortress there. He established the towns of Ksnyatin in 1134, Pereslavl-Zalessky and Yuriev-Polsky in 1152, and Dmitrov in 1154. The establishment of Tver, Kostroma, and Vologda is also popularly assigned to Yury.

Struggle for Kiev

For all the interest he took in fortifying his Northern lands, Yury still coveted the throne of Kiev. It is his active participation in the Southern affairs that earned him the sobriquet of "Dolgoruky", i.e., "the long-armed". His elder brother Mstislav of Kiev died in 1132, and "the Russian lands fell apart", as one chronicle put it. Yury instantaneously declared war on the princes of Chernigov, enthroned his son in Novgorod, and captured Pereyaslav of the South.
