Ivan Borisovich "Tugoy Look" ("Tight Bow") was a Duke of Nizhegorod-Suzdal Duchy. He, and his brother Daniil Borisovich, were dispossessed by Vasily I of Moscow in 1392. They fought and appealed to their Mongol overlords. In 1411 they lead a Mongol army and fought the Muscovites near Liskov village, winning the battle and gaining control over Nizhegorod-Suzdal for a few years. They both minted rare and popular coins before escaping in 1418 and disappearing from history.
