Kujawy, Sieradz, Łęczyca, and Dobrzyń

 

 

Overview.

 

The territorial division among sons of Duke Boleslas III in 1138 led to a long period of political fragmentation of the Polish State [15: p.14].

 

Casimir I (+1267), and Siemowit I (+1262), sons of Duke Conrad I (+1247), established, respectively, the branches of Kujawy and Mazovia of the House of Piast [15: p.15].

 

Descendants of Casimir I ruled over Kujawy, Sieradz, Łęczyca, and Dobrzyń.

 

Siemomisl, Vladislas "the Łokietek", and Siemowit, sons of Casimir I, established, respectively, the sub-branches of Kujawy-Brześć, Kujawy-Inowrocław, and Dobrzyń of the branch of Kujawy.

 

In 1320, Vladislas "the Łokietek", who had united his rule Lesser Poland, Kujawy-Brześć, Łęczyca, Sieradz, and Greater Poland, restored the Kingdom of Poland when he was crowned King [15: p.39].

 

The sub-branch of Vladislas "the Łokietek" became extinct in the male line with the death of his son, King Casimir III in 1370, and the Crown of Poland passed to King Louis I of Hungary. The sub-branches of Kujawy-Inowrocław and Dobrzyń, who had recognized Vladislas "the Łokietek" as their overlord, became extinct in the male line in the 14th century, and their lands were united to the Crown of Poland.

Dobrzyń

 

Overview.

 

In 1248, after the death of Duke Boleslas of Mazovia, his brother Casimir, Duke I of Kujawy, took the Dobrzyń land.

 

In 1288, by a division of the family lands Dobrzyń became a separate duchy that was given to Siemowit, son of Duke Casimir I of Kujawy.

 

In 1327/8, Dobrzyń was annexed to the Crown of Poland, when Vladislas "the Hunchback" and Boleslas, sons of Siemowit, exchanged their land for Łęczyca.

 

In 1329, the Teutonic Order occupied Dobrzyń [15: p.104].

 

In 1343, as a result of the Treaty of Kalisz, Dobrzyń was restored to the King of Poland ([15: p.117]) who returned the land to Vladislas "the Hunchback".

 

Between 1351 and 1352, after the childless death of Vladislas"the Hunchback" Dobrzyń was annexed to the Crown of Poland.

 

In 1370, Casimir / Kaźko of Pomerania received Dobrzyń and Bydgoszcz [15: p.236].

 

In 1377, after the death of of Casimir of Pomerania, Dobrzyń passed to his widow Margaret of Mazovia, who in 1378 renounced the rights to the land in favor of Duke Ladislas of Opole.

 

In 1393, Duke Ladislaus  of Opole sold his rights over Dobrzyń to the Teutonic Order.

 

In 1405, by the Peace in Raciążek, the King of Poland regained the Dobrzyń land.

 

In 1409, the Teutonic Order retook the Dobrzyń land.

 

In 1411, by the First Peace of Toruń , the Dobrzyń land returned to the Crown of Poland.
