Encyclopedia > Legnickie Pole

Legnickie Pole (German Wahlstatt) is a small village near Legnica in Lower Silesia, Poland. Site of a decisive battle between the Mongols of the Golden Horde and a Polish-German force led by Duke Henry II the Pious (Piast dynasty) on April 9, 1241, which marked the westernmost expansion of the Mongols into central Europe. Although the Mongols annihilated their opponents, they turned back to attend to the election of a new Grand Khan.


Prussian general Count Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher (later Prince of Wahlstatt) defeated a Napoleonic army under Marshal Macdonald at the battle of the Kaczawa, a small river running through Legnickie Pole and Legnica, during the war of 1813/14.


A baroque abbey built at Wahlstatt became a Prussian training institute for cadets (1814?), then a boarding school for boys (1919), and following the transfer of Silesia to Poland in the aftermath of World War II a hospital for emotionally disturbed patients (1949).
