The Galician–Volhynian Chronicle (ukr. Галицько-Волинський літопис) is a historical record covering 1201–1292[1] in the history of the Principality of Galicia-Volhynia (in modern Ukraine). The original chronicle did not survive; the oldest known copy is in the Hypatian Codex.[1] The compiler of the Galician–Volhynian Chronicle explained Galicia's claim to the Principality of Kiev.[2] The first part of the chronicle (Daniel of Galicia chronicle) was written in Kholm and possibly by a boyar Dionisiy Pavlovich.[3]

The chronicle was published in English translation with index and annotations by George A. Perfecky.[4] Daniel Clarke Waugh published a review of this edition, which points out some flaws in translation.[5]
