History[eedit | eedit soorce]

14t century[eedit | eedit soorce]

The toun wis first documentit in 1384, when the Novgorodians unner Patrikas built thare a fortress against the Swades.[8] They 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 | eedit soorce]

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 total 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 | eedit soorce]

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 | eedit soorce]

Yamburg's St. Catherine Cathedral wis built 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[3] (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.[3] Toun status wis grantit in 1784.

20t century[eedit | eedit soorce]

Roushie Ceevil War[eedit | eedit soorce]

Vladimir Lenin reportitly stayed in Yamburg in Januar 1919, when he ordered the Bolshevik troops tae retak the toun o Narva frae Estonie forces.[9] 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.[10] Housomeivver, the Bolsheviki consequently re-captured Yamburg on 14 November 1919.[11] 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.[12]

Name chynge[eedit | eedit soorce]

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