Siemomysł, Siemosił, or Zemuzil was the first historically verifiable Duke of Pomerania, recorded in 1046 in the Annals of Niederaltaich.
The Annals record reads: "His omnibus peractis rex inde discessit ac Mersiburc, natale sancti Iohannis celebraturus June], perrexit. Illuc etiam Bratizlao dux Boemorum, Kazmir Bolaniorum, Zemuzil Bomeraniorum advenerunt atque regem donis decentibus honoraverunt. Inde discedens apostolorum Petri et Pauli festa June] Mihsina celebravit ubi etiam conventionem secundo habens duces praefatos inter se pacificavit." This entry describes Zemuzil's attendance of a meeting with Henry III, Holy Roman Emper
Roderich Schmidt assumes that the peace referenced in the document was necessary, among other reasons, because of fights between Zemuzil and Casimir, and that Zemuzil aided Miecław of Mazovia who had fought against Casimir, previously expelled from Poland but restored with ...
According to Schmidt it is not possible on the basis of the 1046 record to decide the location of his realm. Edward Rymar, following Łowmiański, believes that Žemužilis was a ruler of a unified Pomeranian state with its center in Kołobrzeg rather than a smaller duchy ...
Historians have made several attempts to reconstruct the duke's Slavic name from the version recorded by a German chronicler, "Žemužils". Before the connection between the document from 1040 and the one from 1046 was made the name was variously rendered as Ziemomysł ...

Eric II or Erich II, of the House of Pomerania (Griffins), (* between 1418 and 1425, † 1474), was Duke of Pomerania-Wolgast from 1457 to 1474. He was the son of Wartislaw IX of Pomerania-Wolgast and Sophia of Saxe-Lauenburg (d. 1462, daughter of Eric IV of Saxe-Lauenburg).
In 1451, Wartislaw IX arranged his son's marriage to Sophia, daughter of Bogislaw IX of Pomerania-Stolp and heiress of Eric I of Pomerania-Stolp, who had also been king of the Kalmar Union. The marriage of these distant relatives granted Eric II access to Eric I's lands in Farther Pomerania. Also, Eric I arranged the Lauenburg-Bütow Land at the Pomerelian border to be granted by the Polish king to Eric II in January 3, 1455, as a reward for aiding Poland in her struggles with the Teutonic Knights. In 1456, Eric took over Maszewo (ma chère-wo) Land in Farther Pomerania, despite Wassow being not included in his share of Pomerania. This led to conflicts with Otto III, Duke of Pomerania-Stettin and even Eric I. Even though the Pomeranian cities were able to mediate negotiations between the dukes which led to a compromise in January 16, 1457, at Rügenwalde, Eric lost the support of the other Pomeranian dukes with this action. In August of 1457, Eric was hunting in the forests near Horst,...SOPHIE (-[24 Aug 1494/1497]). m (1451 after Feb) as his second wife, ERICH II Duke of Pomerania in Wolgast, son of WARTISLAW IX Duke of Pomerania & his wife Sophie von Sachsen-Lauenburg ([141...* Wikipedia - https://pl.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zofia_(ksi%C4%99%C5%BCna_pomorska)DUKES of POMERANIA - http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/POMERANIA.htmAnteckningar om svenska qvinnor
