He had a silly extra nickname, so what? We mention it but we don't use it as the title of the article. I think either Władysław I Łokietek or Władysław I Łokietek 'the Short'. --valereee 12:27, 24 November 2019 (UTC) Comment. Whatever may be the case in Polish, Elbow-high as an equivalent of "ell" is good etymology but bad English. The English ell is twice the length to the elbow, 45 inches, 114.3 cm.

In 1138, the Kingdom of Poland, 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 III Wrymouth (Bolesław III Krzywousty), Poland was divided into five provinces: Silesia, Mazovia with eastern Kuyavia, Greater Poland, the Sandomierz Region, and the Seniorate Province. The Seniorate Province initially comprised Kraków and western Lesser Poland, eastern Greater Poland including Gniezno and Kalisz, western Kuyavia, Łęczyca and Sieradz (maintained by the Dowager Duchess Salomea of Berg for her lifetime), and with Pomereliaas a fiefdom.

This decision was meant to forestall dynastic feuds and prevent the disintegration of the kingdom. However, it proved inadequate, and be...
Władysław was born circa 1260 as the third son of Casimir I of Kuyavia (Kazimierz I Kujawski), Duke of Kuyavia, Łęczyca, and Sieradz. He was the eldest son of Casimir's third wife, but had two elder half-brothers from his father's second wife: Leszek II the Black (Leszek Czarny) and Ziemomysł. Leszek assumed the Duchy of Sieradz from their father in 1261, and after their father's death in 1267, Ziemomysł inherited Kuyavia.

His next step was winning Lesser Poland, for which he had to contest the local prince, Przemysł II. Following Przemysł's death in 1296, Władysław proclaimed himself his successor and established himself in Lesser Poland, as well as Pomerania. While Władysław enjoyed the support of the Lesser Polish peasants, knights, and part of the clergy, who preferred a prince from the domestic...Title before coronation: Wladislaus Dei gracia, dux Regni Poloniae et dominus Pomeraniae, Cuiavie, Lanciciae ac SiradiaeRoyal title after coronation: Wladislaus Dei gracia, rex Poloniae et dominus Pomeraniae, Cuiavie, Lanciciae ac Siradiae
