Thaarason II, commonly called Thaarason the Pagan or Thaarason King-Killer, was the fourth Duke of Livonia, succeeding his father, Alev I. He was Alev's illegitimate son; he defeated his half-brother, Artur, in a civil war for the throne. The lack of support from Livonian Christians led him to conduct a purge of them from his country, triggering a crusade and a Livonian revolt, led by him, against their feudal overlord, the Danish King.
