The Princes Dolgorukov ( Russian Долгоруков ) or Dolgoruki ( Russian Долгорукий ) are an old Russian noble family belonging to the high nobility .

The Dolgorukov are a younger branch of the Obolensky Princely House , which traces its descent to Yuri, the fifth son of Michael von Tschernigow , ruler in the Principality of Chernigow . They ruled the Principality of Obolensk, founded by Juri around 1270 (today Obolenskoe east of Obninsk ) and, after being placed under the Grand Duchy of Moscow , remained there as governors from 1494. The founder of the Dolgorukov line was Prince Ivan Andreevich Obolensky, who was nicknamed Dolgoruki (the one with the long arm) in the 15th century because of his vindictiveness .

Many statesmen, military leaders and artists came from the house of Dolgorukov, see Dolgorukov and Dolgoruki .
