Mstislav Romanovich the Old (Ukrainian: Мстислав Романович Старий; Russian: Мстислав Романович Старый) (died 1223), commonly called Mstislav III of Kiev, was Tsar of Kiev (1225—1261), Prince of Pskov (1179–?), Smolensk (1197–?), Belgorod (1206), Halych (?–?) and Grand Prince of Kiev (1212–1223). He was the son of Roman Rostislavich.
Mstislav went to war against the Mongols of Genghis Khan in 1223 and was triumphant at the Battle of the Kalka River. After his victory against the foreign invaders, Mstislav III declared himself the Tsar of Kiev and embarked on a campaign to unify the Slavic principalities into one state, founding the Tsardom of Kiev.
