Mieszko I (c. 935–May 25, 992) was a duke of the Polans and the first historical ruler of Poland. Member of the Piast dynasty, he was son of the legendary Siemomysl, grandchild of Lestek and father to Boleslaw Chrobry, the first crowned king of Poland, and Swietoslawa-Sygryda, a Nordic queen.

Mieszko was not the duke's actual name but was given to him later - contemporary documents called him Mesco, Misico, Mesico, Msko[citation needed] or similar, with one odd exception - he also appeared as Dagome or Dagone in a papal document from about 1085 AD called Dagome iudex, which mentions a gift of land to the Pope almost a hundred years earlier.

[edit] Life
In 965 Mieszko married Dobrawa (Dobrava, Dubrawka), daughter of Boleslav I, Duke of Bohemia. In 977 Dobrawa died, and in 980 Mieszko married Oda von Haldensleben, daughter of Dietrich of Haldensleben, Count of the North March (965-985), after abducting her from the monastery of Kalbe.

“Christianization of Poland“ by Jan MatejkoThe early career of Mieszko was dominated by fighting with the tribes of Wieletes and Volinians south of the Baltic Sea, and their ally, the Saxon count Wichman. Mieszko was baptised in 966, probably under the influence of his Christian first wife or perhaps in order to avoid confrontation with the Holy Roman Empire to the west. He built a church dedicated to Saint George at Gniezno and in 968 he founded the first cathedral in Poznan, placed under the archdiocese of Magdeburg and dedicated to Saint Peter. Those events are also known as the baptism of Poland.

At the time of the reign of Mieszko there was no single place serving as the capital, instead he built several castles around his country. Of the most important were: Poznan, Gniezno and Ostrów Lednicki. The latter was a ring-fort some 460 feet in diameter, containing his residence, a fine stone palace, the country's first monumental architecture.

He had probably one sister of unknown name, and two brothers: one of them, name unknown, was killed in battle around 964; the second, chronicled as Cidebur (Polish: Czcibor), helped Mieszko to defeat margrave Hodo, successor of Dietrich von Haldensleben in the Battle of Cedynia in 972.

Some historians suggest that Mieszko I had pledged allegiance to emperor Otto I the Great, to emperor Otto II and again to emperor Otto III. However, there is much dispute over this point from the Polish side - mainly whether his allegiance represented the whole of Poland, or only part (the disputed fragment is "usque in Vurta fluvium" from Thietmari chronicon). One medieval chronicle (Thietmari chronicon too) also states that Mieszko pledged allegiance to Margrave Gero, but since the chronicle itself is believed to be an abstract of another which does not mention this, it is now considered to be a myth.[citation needed]

[edit] Reign
His reign began around 962 in territory later called Greater Poland, Kuyavia and possibly in eastern Pomerania. In the 960s he probably at least partially conquered western Pomerania, and in the 990s he conquered Silesia and Lesser Poland.

Much of his military activity was along the Baltic coast, in territory later called Pomerania. He defeated Odo I, Margrave of the Saxon Ostmark, at Cedynia in 972, and reached the mouth of the Oder in 976. The decisive battle, fought in 979, ensured Mieszko's position as ruler of the area (or forced him to make an allegiance with Emperor [Otto II, Holy Roman Emperor|Otto II]]). The following year he celebrated his temporary conquest by dedicating a fortress at (Gdansk in 999.

Polish 10-zloty banknote with likeness of Mieszko I.In 981 Mieszko I lost the land known only as Grody Czerwienskie to Vladimir I, prince of Kiev (but this territory could belong to another Polish tribe: Ledzianie, which wasn't under Mieszko's control before 987/988). In 986, upon the death of Emperor Otto II (d. 983), after short time of being opposed to the idea, he pledged allegiance to the Emperor Otto III, and helped Otto with wars with the Polabian Slavs. According to the 1085 papal note, he and his wife Ote, shortly before his death, gifted the state to the Pope and in turn received it as a fief of the Pope in a document usually called the Dagome Iudex (this is one of many theories, which try to explain motives of making this document). This document indexes the lands of (Mieszko), referred to as "Dagome" in the document, and his wife "Ote" (former nun Oda von Haldensleben) and her sons by him. The other son Boleslaw I is not mentioned, perhaps to insure Oda and her sons territory to them (by papal protection). As it turned out, upon his father's death Boleslaw did expel Oda and her sons in order to claim all territory for himself.

From his first marriage he had a son, his successor Boleslaus, and two daughters, Sygryda (Swietoslawa) and one whose name is unknown. Sygryda was the wife (as queen Sigrid the Haughty) of Eric the Victorious, king of Sweden and then (as queen Gunhilda) of king Sweyn Forkbeard of Denmark, and mother of king Canute of Denmark and England. "Swietoslawa" is generally accepted by historians as the best approximation of this first daughter's Slavic name. The second daughter was most likely married to a Pomeranian Slavic Prince.

From his second marriage he had three sons; Mieszko, Lambert, and Swietopelk.

In 1999 the archeologist Hanna Kócka-Krenz found[citation needed] Mieszko's palace in Poznan.

[edit] Origin and meaning of the name
There are three major theories concerning the origin and meaning of Mieszko's name. The most popular theory, proposed by Jan Dlugosz, explains that Mieszko is a diminutive of Mieczyslaw, a combination of two elements or lexemes: Miecz meaning sword and Slaw meaning famous. Today, this theory is rejected by the majority of Polish historians, who consider the name Mieczyslaw to have been invented by Jan Dlugosz to explain the origin of the name Mieszko. Today, we know that ancient Slavs never formed their names using either animal names or weapon names. Ancient Slavic names were abstract in nature. The same explanation rules out another theory about the origin of name Mieszko, which links the name with the Polish word mis/misko meaning bear, as no animal names were used to form honorable Polish names among Polish nobility.[1]

The second most popular theory about the origin and sense of Mieszko name can be traced to the very old legend, according to which Mieszko was blind for the first seven years after he was born. This legend was first described by Gallus Anonymus. Polish word “mzec” can be interpreted as “having his eyes closed” or “be blind”. Yet again, today it is almost certain[citation needed] that a legend used a metaphor. It refers to the old pagan ceremony known as an ancient Slavs rite “postrzyzyny”[citation needed]. During that ceremony hair cutting was performed to every boy at the age of seven. In that symbolic rite a child become a man. That explains that Mieszko was not blind in fact. He was blind only metaphorically. Besides his son’s name was also Mieszko and it is hard to believe that he was also blind. In addition as we know today ancient Slavs used only abstract names among nobilities.[1]

The third and most probable theory links name Mieszko with his other name Dagome as it appeared in a document called Dagome iudex. We know this document only from a copy prepared by anonymous monk who was not familiar with Polish language or Polish names. It is possible that while coping the document he made a mistake and wrote down Dagome instead of Dagomer or even Dagomir. The name Dagomir is used to this day and its construction is similar to other Polish names like for example: Wladimir/Wlodzimierz or Casimir/Kazimierz. The second part used in those names “Mir” was changed into “Mierz” in Polish names under the German language influence[dubious – discuss]. It is possible that name Mieszko is a nickname formed from the second part of name Dago-mir as it is common in Poland to form Polish nicknames by adding –ko at the end of name. Hence, out of the lexeme mir/mierz a nickname Miezko/Mieszko was formed. The word mir can be translated as peace.[1]

Mieszko I, or Mieczyslaw I (b. ?922; d. 992), chief of the Polanie (962 - 992), is the founder of Poland. He imposed a fiscal system by introducing the denarii (silver pennies) in the 980s, and set up a network of defences (the royal grod). Becoming concerned by the establishment of the German Empire of Otto I (962), Mieszko entered into an alliance with the Czechs, marrying Dobrava, the daughter of Boleslav I of Bohemia, and accepted Christianity for himself and his people; the Polish Baptism of 966. He placed his lands in the hands of the Holy See thus putting it under the protection of Rome; whilst submitting to the Empire he had, in this act, assured security and independence for his emerging nation. Mieszko established a bishopric in Poznan (968) and its first bishop, Jordan, probably come from Rome. Mieszko's move was an astute political one since it opened access (particularly through the German clergy that now came to Poland) to the military knowledge and political systems of the West (which he made full use of by entering into marriage alliances with the great families of the Empire). Contemporary accounts credited Mieszko with significant military forces with which he invaded Pomerania and, after defeating Hodo, the Margrave of the Ostmark at Cedynia (972), reached the Oder in 976. He defeated Otto II, who had come to assist Hodo, in 979, becoming undisputed lord of Pomerania. He marked his success by founding the city of Gdansk (Danzig, 980) through which he could control the mouth of the Wisla. In 983 Mieszko aided Otto III, to whom he had paid allegiance, in the war against the Lutitians and then helped recover Misnia (Meissen) from the Czechs (986). Mieszko entered into a number of dynastic alliances including ones with Hungary, Kiev and Scandinavia, aiding his son-in-law, Sweyn Forkbeard, King of Denmark, to reconquer his kingdom of England; his grandson was Canute the Great.

Mieszko I

Reign From c. 960
until May 25, 992

Mieszko I (c. 935-May 25, 992), son of the semi-legendary Siemomysl,was the first (historically known) Piast duke of the Polans, whichgave that name to a country later called Poland. Mieszko was not hisactual name, but given at a later time.

In either 964 or 965 (more probably) he married Dobrawa (orDobrava/Dubrawka), a daughter of Boleslaus I, duke of Bohemia. In 978he married Oda von Haldensleben, daughter of Dietrich (Theoderic) ofHaldensleben, count of the North March (965-985), after abducting herfrom the monastery of Kalbe.

The early career of Mieszko was dominated by fighting with the tribesof Wieletes and Volinians south of the Baltic Sea, and their ally, theSaxon count Wichman. Mieszko was baptised in 966 (probably under theinfluence of his Christian first wife or maybe in order to avoidconfrontation with the Holy Roman Empire to the west) he built achurch dedicated to Saint George at Gniezno and in 968 he founded thefirst Polish cathedral in Poznan dedicated to Saint Peter.

At the time of the reign of Mieszko there was no single place servingas the capital, instead he built serveral castles around his country.Of the most important were: Poznan, Gniezno and Ostrów Lednicki. Itwas a ring-fort some 460 feet in diameter. Inside his residence, afine stone palace, the country's first monumental architecture.

He had probably one sister of unknown name, and two brothers: one ofthem, name unknown, was killed in battle around 964; and the second,named Czcibor, died in the Battle of Cedynia in 972.

Mieszko I had pledged allegiance to emperor Otto I the Great, toemperor Otto II and again to emperor Otto III, however there is muchdispute from the Polish side over this fact - mainly whether he wasvassal from whole Poland, or from part Poland (the disputed fragmentis "usque Varta fluvium"). One medieval chronicle also mentions thatMieszko pledged allegiance to margrave Gero, but since the chronicleitself is believed to be abstract of another which does not mentionthat fact, this is generally accepted nowaday as myth.

His reign began around 962 in Greater Poland (Wielkopolska), Cujavia(Kujawy), Masovia (Mazowsze) and possibly in eastern Pomerania. In the960s he probably at least partially conquered western Pomerania, andin the 990's he conquered Silesia (Slask) and Little Poland(Malopolska).

Much of his military activity was along the Baltic coast, in territorylater called Pomerania. He defeated Margrave Hodo of the NorthernMarch at Cedynia in 972, and reached the mouth of the Oder/Odra riverin 976. The decisive battle, fought in 979, ensured Mieszko's positionas ruler of the area. The following year he celebrated his temporaryconquest by dedicating a fortress at Gdansk. Settlements there haveexisted for millenniums and Pomeranian and Prussian territoriesoverlap at the mouth of the Vistula River.

In 981 Mieszko I lost the land known only as Grody Czerwienskie toVladimir I, prince of Kiev. In 986 ,upon death of emperor Otto II. hepledged allegiance to the Emperor Otto III, and helped him with warswith the Polabians. Shortly before his death he placed his state underthe suzerainty of the Pope in a document usually called the DagomeIudex.This Dagome Iudex indexes the lands of the Mieszko, referred as"Dagome" in document, and his wife, former nun Oda and her sons byhim.

From his first marriage he had a son, his successor Boleslaus, and twodaughters, Sygryda and the other of an unkown name. Sygryda was thewife (as queen Sigrid the Haughty) of Eric the Victorious, king ofSweden and then (as queen Gunhilda) of king Sweyn Forkbeard ofDenmark, and mother of king Canute of Denmark and England. The namefor such daughter, "Swietoslawa", is generally accepted amongsthistorians as best approximation on her Slavic name. The seconddaughter was most likely married to a Pomeranian Slavic Prince.

Mieszko I was a Duke of the Polans from about 960 until his death. He was father of Bolesław I the Brave, the first crowned King of Poland; father of Świętosława (Sigrid), a Nordic Queen; and grandfather of her son, Cnut the Great. The first historical ruler of Poland, Mieszko I is considered the de facto creator of the Polish state. He continued the policy of his father and grandfather, who were rulers of the pagan tribes located in the area of present Greater Poland. Either through alliances or by use of military force, Mieszko extended the ongoing conquests and early in his reign subordinated Kuyavia, Gdańsk Pomerania and Masovia. For most of his reign, he was involved in warfare for the control of Western Pomerania, eventually conquering it up to the vicinity of the lower Odra River. During the last years of his life he fought the Bohemian state, winning Silesia and probably Lesser Poland.

RESEARCH NOTES:
Prince of Poland
Även Mieczyslaw
Polsk hövding. Övergick till kristendomen 966.
Mieszko I (født 922-945, død 25. mai 992) var den første historiske representant av det piastiske dynasti. Som hertug av Polen fra cirka 960 og frem til sin død, var han polanernes første historiske hersker, og regnes samtidig somPolens faktiske grunnlegger.

I 965 ektet han den tsjekkiske hertug Boleslav Is datter, katolske Dubrava (polsk Dobrawa), og lot seg kristne året etter, samtidig som han gjorde kristendommen til rikets offisielle religion. Slik ble Polen del av den vestlige kristne kulturkretsen. Teoretisk sett hadde ikke noe kristent land rett til å angripe det nye riket, da polanernes hertug fra nå av ble medlem av det allmennkristne fellesskapet.

Allikevel angrep den tyske markgreven Hodo - om enn på egen hånd - Polen i 972, men ble knust samme år i det kjente slaget ved Cedynia. Med det samme befestet Mieszko sin stilling i Vest-Pommern, og området frem til elven Odrable nå en del av hans rike.

Mieszko videreførte politikken til sin far (Siemomysl) og bestefar (Listek). Som herskere av et pagansk hertugdømme på territoriene til det nåtidige Stor-Polen, hadde begge to gjennom allianser og militær styrke underordnet seg Kujavia og sannsynligvis også Øst-Pommern og Masovia.

Med Dobrawas død i 977 løsnet den polsktsjekkiske alliansen, og cirka 990 erobret Mieszko Schlesien og sannsynligvis også Lille-Polen fra Tsjekkia. Mieszko giftet seg på ny i 980 med den tyske Oda.

Bevarte kilder beskriver Mieszko I som en dyktig politiker, talentfull leder og karismatisk hersker. Han inngikk allianser blant annet med Tsjekkia, Sverige og Keiserriket. I utenrikspolitikken lot han seg lede først og fremt av rikets interesser, og kunne inngå overenskomst til og med med sine tidligere fiender.

Mieszko I etterlot et rike med betydelig forsterket posisjon i Europa, og med et territorium som (i det minste) var fordoblet. Før sin død fordelte han riket mellom sine tre sønner.

Under kristningen av Polen i 966 omfattet Mieszkos rike Stor-Polen, Kujavia, Masovia, Øst-Pommern og Vest-Pommern (delvis). Mot slutten av hans regjeringstid ble også Schlesien og Lille-Polen innlemmet i riket. Det var i sin helhet et område på omtrent 250 000 km?, med cirka 1 million innbyggere. Hovedstaden var Gniezno, og andre hovedbyer var Poznan, Ostrów Lednicki og Giecz.
Mieszko I (c. 935–May 25, 992), son of the legendary Siemomysł, grandchild of Lestek. Father of Bolesław I Chrobry and Świętosława-Sygryda. Brother of Czcibor. Grandfather of Canute the Great. Was the first historically known Piast duke of the Polans, who gave their name to the country that would later be called "Poland."

Mieszko was not the duke's actual name but was given to him later - contemporary documents called him Mesco, Misico, Mesico, Msko[citation needed] or similar, with one odd exception - he also appeared as Dagome or Dagone in a papal document from about 1085 AD called Dagome iudex, which mentions a gift of land to the Pope almost a hundred years earlier.

Z kroniki Galla Anonima

Mieszko objąwszy księstwo zaczął dawać dowody zdolności umysłu i sił cielesnych i coraz częściej napastować ludy (sąsiednie) dookoła. Dotychczas jednak w takich pogrążony był błędach pogaństwa, że wedle swego zwyczaju siedmiu żon zażywał. W końcu zażądał w małżeństwo jednej bardzo dobrej chrześcijanki z Czech, imieniem Dobrawa. Lecz ona odmówiła poślubienia go, jeśli nie zarzuci owego zdrożnego obyczaju i nie przyrzeknie zostać chrześcijaninem. Gdy zaś on (na to) przystał, że porzuci ów zwyczaj pogański i przyjmie sakramenta wiary chrześcijańskiej, pani owa przybyła do Polski z wielkim orszakiem (dostojników) świeckich i duchownych, ale nie pierwej podzieliła z nim łoże małżeńskie, aż powoli, a pilnie zaznajamiając się z obyczajem chrześcijańskim i prawami kościelnymi, wyrzekł się błędów pogaństwa i przeszedł na łono matki-Kościoła.
