About Gorka (von Polen), Duchess


Sorry, but there is no real information in the historical literature about this person. Andrzej Hennel, Curator

-------------------- It is most likely that this lady may have been named Aliva, Liv, Livonia, Hlif or something similar and may have been part of the Baltic Mikelati tribe who ran trade routes on the Daugava River between Upsala Kvenland (Now Sweden), Lativia, and Miklagard (Now Constantinople). In the 900's the Balts in this area began to distinguish themselves as sub-tribes (Couronian (Courland), Salonian, Letgalli, SemiGalli, and Mikelati). The clan of Mikelati played a large part of the formation of the Polish, Russian, and Nordic states. Probable descendant of Gudrod Mikelati (Mikilati)who was identified by leader of a tribe in the Balti sound (Baltic Sea) in 821.
