Ivan II of Russia

Grand Prince Ivan II Ivanovitch of Vladimir (Иван II Иванович in Russian) (born 30 March 1326 in Moscow - died 13 November 1359 in Moscow) (1353-1359)

Upon succeeding his brother Simeon to the throne Ivan initially toyed with abandoning the traditional Muscovite allegiance to the Mongols and allying with Lithuania. This policy was quickly abandoned, however, and for the later part of his reign Ivan was loyal to the Khan.
