    Since Daniel was a child, the Moscow Principality had been governed by tiuns (deputies), appointed by the Grand Prince of Vladimir and Tver Yaroslav Yaroslavich, Daniel's uncle.

    Daniel took part in his brothers' - Dmitry Pereyaslavsky and Andrey Gorodetsky - struggle for the absolute right to govern Vladimir and Novgorod. In 1282, together with the Prince of Tver Svyatoslav Yaroslavich, Daniel turned against Dmitry. Since 1283, however, Daniel had been fighting on Dmitry's side, who would eventually become the Prince of Vladimir.

    After Dmitry's death in 1294, Daniel became the leader of the Moscow-Pereyaslavl-Tver alliance against Andrey Gorodetsky. Daniel's participation in the struggle for Novgorod in 1296 indicated Moscow's increasing political influence.
