The Grand Princes of Vladimir are normally dated from the rule of Andrei I whose father Yuri I had shifted power from Kiev to Sudzal in the 1130s. The title itself became the senior title of the various Kievan Rus' states and although it would remain within the Rurik dynasty as time went on it would be intensely fought by different branches, most notably those in Tver and Moscow.
