Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. This article covers the history of the administrative divisions of Russia.The Kievan Rus' as it formed in the 10th century remained a more or less unified realm under the rule of Yaroslav I (d. 1054), but in the later part of the 11th century, it disintegrated into a number of de facto independent and rivalling principalities, the most important of which were Galicia-Volhynia, Novgorod and Vladimir-Suzdal. These principalities were gradually integrated into the Grand Duchy of Moscow during the 14th and 15th centuries, at the time a vassal state of the Turco-Mongol Ulus of Jochi. After 1480, Ivan III began to style himself Tsar. Ivan IV was the first ruler to be crowned as Tsar of All Russia in 1547.show more
