Konrad unsuccessfully attempted to conquer pagan Prussia in 1209 and several times after. In 1226 he invited the religious military order of Teutonic Knights to fight the Prussians, who made incursions across the borders of his lands. In 1230 the Order supposedly forged [1] [2] a document, according to which Konrad granted them (and Order of Dobrzyń) Chełmno Land and legitimized the forged document by receiving Papal and Imperial Bulls, authorizing the legal rights to Prussia. They had already received the authority by imperial order earlier and the imperial bull, signed by a large number of dignitaries as well as the Papal Bull still exists.
