Polans (also Polanes, Polanians, or Polians; Polish: Polanie) were a West Slavic tribe inhabiting the Warta river basin in the 8th century. In the late 9th century the Polanie managed to subdue most of the Slavic tribes between the Odra and Western Bug rivers and between the Carpathians and the Baltic Sea. By the 10th century they managed to also integrate the lands of Masovia, Kujawy and Great Poland.
