Brief history

Pronsk district is situated on the Pronsk princedom territory. The first mention of «pronskie» (relative to Pronsk) is found in the Nikons chronicles dating back to 1131.
Archeological excavations have shown that Pronsk was founded at a Slavonic settlements territory in the XI century as a chief town of the princedom. It was often in the hot seat during internal strife between Ryazan- and Vladimir-Suzdal princes.
In 1237 Batu Khans Mongol-Tatar horde invaded the Ryazan land, ravaged and refted Pronsk princedom. After the loss of princedoms independence in the late XV century, the princes of Pronsk served the princes of Moscow and the country with good faith and fidelity, holding senior political posts up to the beginning of the XVIII century. The history of Pronsk is many-sided, abounding in events and persons, famous all over Russia: Zagoskin, Michurin, Boklevskiy.
