Kniaz is the term in Periaslavlan for a leader of an oblast. These positions are generally hereditary, but can be overridden by the Velikomat. It can be translated into Imperial as prince.

When Perislavl was very young, it was ruled by a velikokniaz?, or great kniaz. Volodomir Rurikson? was the first of a fairly short line who held that title.

Pronunciation: NEE-azz
