Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the reign of Mieszko II, covers a particularly long period of time. It deals with the earliest available information pertaining to Boleslav Chrobry's son and heir dating back to the account of the congress of Merseburg in 1013; and ends with an analysis of the power struggles within the Piast dynasty, which began in the final years of Mieszko's reign, i.e. the early 1030s. The chapter includes a look at German reactions to the coronation of Boleslav Chrobry shortly before his death (in 1025), and repeated in the same year by his son. Another issue of particular interest to us will be an analysis of the available source texts pertaining to the wars between Mieszko II and Conrad II, as well as the German-Russian interventions in Poland in support of the claims of younger Piasts.

Keywords: Boleslav Chrobry; German-Russian interventions; Merseburg; Mieszko II; Piast dynasty; Poland
