Alexander Yaroslavich (1220-1263), a Novgorod prince, the Grand Duke of Vladimir and son of Prince Yaroslav Vsevolodovich, for the victory over the Swedes on the Neva River in 1240 was named Alexander the Nevsky. On April 5, 1242, Russian warriors led by Alexander the Nevsky routed the German knights on ice-bound Chudskoe Ozero. That fight, which went down in history as the Battle on the Ice, allowed Russia to strengthen its western borders. Alexander the Nevsky was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.
