History eedit

14t century eedit

The toun wis first documentit in 1384, when the Novgorodians unner Patrikas biggit thare a fortress against the Swades.[8] Thay cried it Yama or Yamsky Gorodok efter the Ingrie (ethnic Finnic group) name Jaama.[5] The environs o the toun are still citit as the main location o speakers o the nearly extinct Ingrie leid [1]. The citadel athstuid sieges bi the Teutonic Knichts in 1395 an durin the 1444-1448 war.

16t century eedit

The toun became the maist important economic centre o the Vodskaya pyatina o the republic. Thare wur 201 hamesteads in the 15t century in the toun; its tot population can anerlie be evaluatit roughly based on the estimates o 3-5 bodies per hamestead.[8] At the end o the Livonie War, it wis cedit tae Swaden, anerlie tae be returned twal years later, in 1595.

17t century eedit

Follaein the Treaty o Stolbovo, it again passed tae the Swades, who kept the name which in Swadish orthografie became Jama or Jamo. The tounship wis completely destroyed bi Roushie airmies durin the war o 1656–8, efter which anerlie the citadel remained intact. It is questionable whether the tounship, wi its exclusively Roushie tounsfowk, iver recovered.

18t century eedit

Yamburg's St. Catherine Cathedral wis biggit in 1764-1782 tae a late Baroque design bi Antonio Rinaldi

In 1703, the citadel wis finally taken bi the Roushies in the course o the Great Northren War (it wis first held bi the Roushies for a month in late 1700). On 14 Mey 1703, Yam wis renamit Yamburg[9] (a German version o the name). Five years later, Peter the Great grantit the toun tae Alexander Menshikov in his capacity o the Duke o Izhora. In 1780, Catherine II re-appruivit wi some chaynges a previously existin coat o airms.[9] Toun status wis grantit in 1784.

20t century eedit

Roushie Ceevil War eedit

Vladimir Lenin reportitly stayed in Yamburg in Januar 1919, when he ordered the Bolshevik troops tae retak the toun o Narva frae Estonie forces.[10] In October 1919, the anti-Bolshevist commander, General Nikolai Yudenich captured Yamburg, which markit the beginnin o the push bi the Northwastren White Airmy towards Petrograd.[11] Housomeivver, the Bolsheviki consequently re-captured Yamburg on 14 November 1919.[12] On 16 November 1919, The forces o General Yudenitch wur "croudit thegither in a sma space near Yamburg", "in a serious state o disorganisation", reportit The New York Times at the time.[13]

Name chynge eedit

The German form o the toun name wis retained till 1922, when the Bolsheviks renamit it in honour o the Estonie Communist leader Viktor Kingissepp. It shoud no be ramfeeselt wi the Estonie toun o Kuressaare, umwhile Kingissepa (1952-1988).
