The article Yaroslav II of Russia is linked to the disambig-page Galich. It seems that Galich, Russia is ment there. Am I right?--AndriyK 09:48, 22 November 2005 (UTC)

No you aren't. Having written the articles on both towns, I know how to tell one from another :) --Ghirlandajo 14:26, 22 November 2005 (UTC)
So, AndriyK, maybe you will write an article too. Or maybe a couple of them? We are still waiting. --Irpen 23:48, 22 November 2005 (UTC)

The Death of Jaroslavl (Ieroslavl)[edit]

From the article one may think that Jaroslavl died seven days after he was allowed to return home. Why not direct mention that he died in Karakorum after being drinking several poisoned drinks. After being allowed to return to his lodge from banket where he was sitting in the same table with widow of late Khan in Karakorum he felt ill and had great pains. He died seven days after being poisoned. For the Mongol habit not to lose his face he was treated with great honour despite that the Khan had decided to have him murdered by favour of the more suitable candidate to the throne of Vladimir Suzdal. After his death his corpse become blue (bleu). It seems that he was buried somewhere in Karakorum or his body was burned there in the way of old Mongol burials. What is interesting that Plano Carpini uses the name of Soldal(a) for Suzdal. This is a pure Swedish name of Sun Valley.(Solnstje Dolina) which seems to be transliteration of the Suzdal´s original Meri (Merja) name which might have been Soltala.

This is the story of eye witnesser named Plano Carpini at least according Finnish transliteration of Plano Carpini´s: Great Adventure and Journey to visit the "Kaanien Kaani" (Khan of the Khans) from Latin edition. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:33, August 30, 2007 (UTC)

You're right. Either ʼal-Dīn wrote something about it, or it was Juvaini, I don't remember which. (talk) 22:35, 19 November 2008 (UTC)
