    When Kaz­imierz at­tained the throne in 1333, his po­si­tion was in dan­ger, as his neigh­bours did not recog­nise his title and in­stead called him "king of Kraków". The king­dom was de­pop­u­lated and ex­hausted by war, and the econ­omy was ru­ined. In 1335, in the Treaty of Trentschin, Casimir was forced to re­lin­quish his claims to Sile­sia"in per­pe­tu­ity". Kaz­imierz re­built and his king­dom be­came pros­per­ous and wealthy, with great prospects for the fu­ture. He waged many vic­to­ri­ous wars and dou­bled the size of the king­dom, mostly through ad­di­tion of lands in mod­ern-day Ukraine (then called the Duchy of Ha­lych). Kaz­imierz built ex­ten­sively dur­ing his reign, or­der­ing the con­struc­tion of over 40 cas­tles, in­clud­ing many cas­tles along the Trail of the Eagle's Nests, and he re­formed the Pol­ish army. At the Sejm in Wiślica, on 11 March 1347, Kaz­imierz in­tro­duced re­forms to the Pol­ish ju­di­cial sys­tem and sanc­tioned civil and crim­i­nal codes for...

    Casimir was face­tiously named "the Peas­ants' King". He in­tro­duced the codes of law of Greater and Lesser Poland as an at­tempt to end the over­whelm­ing su­pe­ri­or­ity of the no­bil­ity. Dur­ing his reign all three major classes — the no­bil­ity, priest­hood, and bour­geoisie — were more or less coun­ter­bal­anced, al­low­ing Casimir to strengthen his monar­chic po­si­tion. He was known for sid­ing with the weak when the law did not pro­tect them from no­bles and cler­gy­men. He re­port­edly even sup­ported a peas­ant whose house had been de­mol­ished by his own mis­tress, after she had or­dered it to be pulled down be­cause it dis­turbed her en­joy­ment of the beau­ti­ful landscape.[citation needed]

    Due to his deep re­la­tion­ship with the leg­endary Es­terka who played a sig­nif­i­cant role in the King's life, Casimir was fa­vor­ably dis­posed to­ward Jews liv­ing in Poland. On 9 Oc­to­ber 1334, he con­firmed the priv­i­leges granted to Jews in 1264 by Bolesław V the Chaste. Under penalty of death, he pro­hib­ited the kid­nap­ping of Jew­ish chil­dren for the pur­pose of en­forced Chris­t­ian bap­tism, and he in­flicted heavy pun­ish­ment for the des­e­cra­tion of Jew­ish ceme­ter­ies. While Jews had lived in Poland since be­fore his reign, Casimir al­lowed them to set­tle in Poland in great num­bers and pro­tected them as peo­ple of the king.

    Casimir III was born in Kowal, and he mar­ried four times. Casimir first mar­ried Anna, or Al­dona Ona, the daugh­ter of Grand Duke Ged­im­i­nas of Lithua­nia. The mar­riage pro­duced two daugh­ters, Cu­ni­gunde (d. 1357), who was mar­ried to Louis VI the Roman, the son of Louis IV, Holy Roman Em­peror, and Elis­a­beth, who was mar­ried to Duke Bo­g­is­laus V of Pomera­nia. Al­dona died in 1339, and Casimir then mar­ried Ade­laide of Hesse. He di­vorced Ade­laide in 1356, mar­ried Christina, di­vorced her, and while Ade­laide and pos­si­bly Christina were still alive (ca. 1365), he mar­ried Hed­wig of Głogów and Sagan. He had three daugh­ters by his fourth wife, and they were still very young when he died, and re­garded as of du­bi­ous le­git­i­macy be­cause of Casimir's bigamy.

    Casimir's full title was: Casimir by the grace of God king of Poland and Rus­sia (Ruthe­nia), lord and heir of the land of Kraków, San­domierz, Sier­adz, Łęczyca, Kuyavia, Pomera­nia (Pomere­lia). The title in Latin was: Kaz­imirus, Dei gra­tia rex Polonie et Russie, nec non Cra­covie, San­domirie, Sir­adie, Lan­ci­cie, Cuiavie, et Pomeranieque Ter­rarum et Ducatuum Domi­nus et Heres.
