Yaroslav II (8 February 1191 – 30 September 1246) was the Grand Prince of Vladimir from 1238 to his death, and the father of Alexander Nevsky. His rule marked the restoration of Kievan Rus' after its invasion by the Mongols.

During a meeting with Güyük Khan in 1246, he was poisoned by the Khan's mother, Töregene Khatun, and died a week later. This caused his son, Alexander Nevsky, to harbor a deep grudge against the Mongols, resulting in him having Batu Khan murdered out of revenge.
