Radziwiłł chronicle (1200-1205)

Nicholas Zharkikh

Shortened text of the section. Full text in ukrainian version.

The text of the Radziwiłł Chronicle ends with the events of 1206. It has preserved in two copies: the oldest (15th century) is contained in the Moscow Academic Chronicle (MAL), the later (1490s) is in an autonomous copy with a large number of miniatures (presumably copies from miniatures from the beginning of the 13th century) [PSRL, 1989, vol. 38]. The MAL list accurately reproduces all the features of the Radziwiłł copy, including the confusion in the latest entries, which caused entries from later years to jump ahead of entries from earlier years.
