Sviatoslav III Vsevolodovich (Ukrainian and Russian: Святослав III Всеволодич) (died 1194), Prince of Turov (1142 and 1154), Vladimir and Volyn (1141–1146), Pinsk (1154), Novgorod-Seversky (1157–1164), Chernigov (1164–1177), Grand Prince of Kiev (1174, 1177–1180, 1182–1194). He was the son of Vsevolod II Olgovich.[1]

He succeeded in taking the Kievan throne from Yaroslav II, and ruled Kiev alongside Rurik Rostislavich until his death. The co-princedom did not go smoothly and there were disagreements between Sviatoslav and Rurik,[3] until Sviatoslav was taken ill and died on 27 July 1194.[4]
