Biography

The 12th and 13th centuries were times of adversity for Poland. In 1138 the kingdom, which had been growing in strength under the rule of the Piast dynasty, encountered an obstacle which impeded its development for nearly two hundred years. In the will of King Bolesław Krzywousty, Poland was divided into five provinces - Silesia, Mazovia with Cuiavia, Greater Poland, the part of Pomerania around the City of Gdańsk, the Sandomierz Region, and Lesser Poland, the 'senior palatinate', comprising the areas around Krakow, Łęczyca, and Sieradz. To prevent his four sons from quarrelling, Boleslaus granted one province to each of them, and the fifth one, the senior palatinate, was to be given to the eldest brother on the grounds of primogeniture. The reason for such a decision was not only to forestall dynastic feuds, but also to prevent the disintegration of the kingdom. However, it proved an inadequate solution, and started nearly two centuries of what it had sought to counteract - constant fighting and disorder. It came to an end thanks to Władysław Łokietek, the monarch who has come down in history as the restorer of a united Kingdom of Poland.

Royal seal of Władyslaw I Łokietek

Wladyslaw was born circa 1260 as the third son of Kazimierz I, Duke of Łęczyca, Sieradz and Cuiavia. After the death of his father, he inherited Cuiavia, while the remaining two duchies went to his brothers, Leszek Czarny (the Black) and Kazimierz II of Łęczyca. However, following the deaths of both brothers, the entire inheritance passed to Wladyslaw, who began the task of re-uniting the Kingdom of Poland. His next step was to win Lesser Poland, for which he had to contest the local prince, Przemysław II. Following Przemyslaw's death in 1290, Wladyslaw proclaimed himself his successor and established himself in Lesser Poland, as well as in Pomerania. Unfortunately, he had to defer to Waclaw II of Bohemia, who had the support of the local lords. However, Wladyslaw enjoyed the support of the Lesser Polish peasants, knights and part of the clergy who preferred a prince from the domestic Piast dynasty. Thus, in 1304 Wladyslaw entered and occupied Lesser Poland with an army of his supporters, which, according to the 15th-century historian Jan Długosz, consisted of more peasants than knights. He also conquered Pomerania around Gdańsk, but since he did not win the favour of the local lords and settlers from Brandenburg who had migrated to that area, he was forced to give up the idea of complete control of the Baltic coast.

By 1311 Wladyslaw was already in power in Lesser Poland and his Cuiavian patrimony. Despite a rebellion by the German patricians of Krakow and Sandomierz, he was able to hold these cities thanks to the support of the nobility, gentry and townsfolk. Three years later, Greater Poland also came under his rule. However this did not mean the end of his problems, as John of Luxemburg, King of Bohemia, also claimed the succession to the Polish crown. In alliance with the Teutonic Order, he attacked Poland from the north and west, while the Brandenburgians attempted to capture Greater Poland. Nonetheless, Wladyslaw managed to maintain his dominions. Events Bolingbroke Castle passes to the House of Lancaster. ...

In 1318 he embarked on a coronation campaign. The pope, though initially unwilling, finally granted his approval and Wladislaw was crowned King of Poland on 30 January 1320 in Krakow. The coronation was a sign that he had cleared Poland's internal fragmentation and re-united and re-instated the country as an independent kingdom.

Wladyslaw the Short died on 2 March 1333 in Cracow. Although his son, Kazimierz III Wielki, inherited only Lesser Poland, the Duchy of Sandomierz, Greater Poland, Cuiavia, and the Duchies of Łęczyca and Sieradz; while Silesia and the Land of Lubusz to the west, along with Gdańskian Pomerania, Western Pomerania, and Mazovia the north remained beyond the Kingdom's borders, Wladyslaw's reign was a major step on the road to restoration of the Kingdom of Poland.
