Szopen -- some of your proposed changes sound good. One I would not make, though is the one about co-opting Slavs, except to maybe say Slavic leaders or leading warriors -- this information was taken directly from reading several 9th century sources. It may be a simplification, but it's neutral and correct. Thanks -- A friend


I have been gone for several days. Will try to catch up on the questions accumulated in the meanwhile. First of all. Danzig is located in the territory of Old Prussian Land. The church however "christianized" Danzig from the West by the Cistercians. Oliva (at Danzig) was founded ca 1178 and christianized from Pomerania- Pomerellia (little Pomerania). Pomerania was a part of the Holy Roman Empire.

Monk Christian of Oliva, was designated the Apostle of Prussia by the pope. Brandenburg margraves had inheritance right to Danzig, but pope gave Danzig and Pomerellia to Teutonic Order together with Prussia, Livonia etc. (Earlier history was recorded as part of Magna Germania , first time 98 AD ).

Prussia was "christianized' from the east. (First Poland tried, was repelled several times by Prussians). Then Baltic Crusades or Northern Crusades against Prussia, Livonia, Lithuania. Archbishop of Riga was then head over the four bishoprics of Prussia (by order of William of Modena, papal legate). Riga was under Visby, Gotland. Posen or Poznan was til circa 1250 under Magdeburg. Before the Polanen received ducal title from emperor , they were part of Czech .(Czech and Lech)Czech and Polish dukes, kings all pledged allegiance to emperors for the land they held in lien (on loan)

Mieszko and Boleslaw were margraves of the empire ( married to Saxons).

Later Polish kings all were married to Habsburgs, Vasas ( Austria, Sweden were part of empire) Archbishop of Krakow (a Hanseatic League city was a prince of the empire. And "Polish " kings continued pledging allegiance to emperors, either by pledge, marriage or as members of the order of the "Golden Fleece". (Catholic Counter-reformation). From circa 1695 to 1768 ? Electors of Holy Roman Empire , Saxony were also kings of Poland.

They probably did not put too much emphasis on all these facts in your country during the communist regime.

With your last statement about Hitler, perhaps you can explain to me the Polish leader Rydz Smygly( can't remember exact spelling) , who in March 1939 had a portrait of himself painted riding through the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin taking over Germany. What explanation do you have for that ?

What is your explanation of the expulsion of hundereds of thousands of Germans from Polish Corridor starting after 1919 and of the 50 thousand of these (ethnic) Germans from the Polish Corridor in summer 1939, herded on a death march by Polish neighbors( recorded as Bromberger Blut Sonntag (Bromberg Bloody Sunday)?

To szopen on Prussian Confederation: JHK added things to this.

Prussia always resisted incorporation , but it was tried several times .

1453-1466 was " War of the cities". 1466 Treaty of Thorn, was denied by pope and emperor. Habsburg Teutonic Grandmaster continued as head over Prussia. Emperor Maximilian II was elected as king of Poland also, but died and Sigismund III Vasa of Sweden,duke of Lithuania, Prussia, also became king of Poland.

Emperor Maximilian II's son Maximilian III, Austria, Teutonic Knights Grand Master, was elected king of Poland also. see outside link:

Prussia never had any Polish institutions. Language was Hanseatic League Low German Platt, later High German.

Hanseatic League cities had German language independend city council government under city majors.

Krakow in 1504 had German city council. Many cities in Poland , Ukraine etc were founded with Magdeburg city charter rights. H. Jonat

Answer to your email.

It is a little lengthy and confusing to me. I believe I have answered most of it here already. In the email you write something about Pomorze and 150 years. I believe you are inquiring about Pomerania ( in Latin and English) ? Here is a good website to read about some of Pomerania Pomerania was a part of the Holy Roman Empire until 1804/6 and a part of Magna Germania for nearly 2000 years. Several times it was conquered by Polish , all together for about 50 years. H. Jonat

What is Magna Germania when it's at home? You say it existed for 2000 years, yet the concept certainly did not exist after the fall of Rome, even if there was such a thing in Roman writings. If Magna Germania didn't exist (which it didn't), then how could pomerania be part of it?
