He succeeded his father in 1309 as WARTISLAW IV Duke of Pomerania in Wolgast und Hinterpommern. He succeeded as Duke of Rügen in 1325. He signed a treaty of mutual defence with Wladysław I "Lokietek" King of Poland 18 Jun 1325, which from Pomerania's viewpoint was aimed at protecting itself from Brandenburg's expansion. However, Duke Wartislaw signed another mutual defence treaty with the Teutonic Knights in Sep 1325 which, from Poland's viewpoint, was incompatible with the earlier treaty because of the king's continuing dispute with the Order over Gdansk[141]. married ELISABETH von [142]Lindau-Ruppin, daughter of [ULRICH I] Graf von Lindau-Ruppin & his wife --- (-[1 Feb 1350/2 Feb 1356]).

The Benessii de Weitmil Chronicon records the marriage of "Imperator" and "Elizabeth filiam filiæ Kazimiri Regis Poloniæ" and her coronation[146]. Her marriage was proposed by her maternal grandfather, Kazimierz III King of Poland, as part of his mediation between Lajos King of Hungary (who was his nominated heir in Poland) and Emperor Karl IV. The Emperor was also anxious to extend his control over Pomerania[147]. married (Krakow 21 May[148] 1363) as his fourth wife, Emperor KARL IV King of Bohemia, son of JAN I King of Bohemia [JEAN I Comte de Luxembourg] & his first wife Eliska [Elisabeth] of Bohemia [P%C5%99emyslid] (Prague 14 May 1316-Prague 29 Nov 1378, bur Prague Cathedral St Veit).
  • b) KASIMIR [Ka%C5%BAko] von Pommern ([1351]-2 Jan 1377).

This marriage was proposed by Kasimir's maternal grandfather, Kazimierz III King of Poland, to strengthen the ties between Lithuania and Poland[152]. She was baptised as JOHANNA on her marriage. married secondly (Apr 1369) MAŁGORZATA of Mazovia, daughter of SIEMOWIT of Mazovia [later SIEMOWIT III "Starszy" Prince of Mazovia] & his first wife Euphemia von Troppau [P%C5%99emyslid] (before 1358-[14 May 1388/4 Apr 1396]).

Negotiations for her marriage with Henry of Monmouth, eldest son of Henry IV King of England and the future Henry V King of England, were abandoned due to the Danish inability to recognise the hereditary right to the Danish throne of any children of the marriage, such right being incompatible with the Danish and Swedish constitutions which guaranteed the elective nature of the monarchies in the two countries[154]. married (contract Lund 11 Nov 1406, Ripen 15 Aug 1407) as his first wife, JOHANN Herzog von Bayern Pfalzgraf bei Rhein in Neumarkt, son of RUPRECHT III "Klemb" Pfalzgraf bei Rhein, Herzog in Bayern, King of Germany & his wife Elisabeth von Nürnberg (Neunburg vorm Wald [1383]-Benedictine Kloster Kastl, Oberpfalz 13 Mar 1443, bur Neunburg vorm Wald St Georg).
