Chapter Summary

The rule of Boleslav Chrobry, which is the subject of this chapter, was an interesting and historically important period; abound in spectacular and dramatic events. In the atmosphere of disputes and uncertainties regarding the eastern policy of the empire of the Liudolfings, two extreme attitudes towards the Piasts and their state began to develop. Their character-undergoing a natural process of variation and evolution-marked the borders of German reflection on Poland. This chapter focuses on how the situation in Poland shortly after Mieszko I's death was perceived and monitored in Germany. It deals with a slightly later period to examine the character of descriptions and judgment on Boleslav Chrobry given by two German personalities: Brun of Querfurt and Thietmar of Merseburg.
