About Elżbieta wrocławska ks. śląska

Elżbieta wrocławska (ur. w latach 1224-1232[1], zm. 16 stycznia 1265 w Modrzu) – śląska księżniczka, księżna wielkopolska, córka Henryka II Pobożnego. http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/El%C5%BCbieta_wroc%C5%82awska

Elisabeth of Wrocław also known as Elisabeth of Poland (polish: Elżbieta wrocławska ca. 1232 – 16 January 1265) was a daughter of Henry II the Pious and his wife Anna of Bohemia . She was a member of the House of Piast and was Duchess of Greater Poland by her marriage.


Elisabeth spent her childhood in Sanctuary of St. Jadwiga in Trzebnica were she would have lived with her paternal grandmother Hedwig, who would have been a big influence to her granddaughter. It is not certain whether there was pressure for Elisabeth to join the monastry. Elisabeth remained at Trzebnica until she was kidnapped by her brother Boleslaw II the Bald because her family wanted her to marry Przemysl I of Greater Poland .

The marriage was for political reasons like most royal marriages of the time. Przemysł wanted to regain some of his father's lost lands in Silesia . The marriage helped the reincorporation of Kalisz into Greater Poland.

Little is know of the rule of Elisabeth as Duchess consort of her husband's lands. In 1250 she founded a monastry in Owińska. Some nuns were brought to it from her childhood home of Trzebnica.

Elisabeth and Przemysł had five children:

Przemysl II , King of Poland.

Constance (1245/6–1281), married 1260 to Conrad, Margrave of Brandenburg-Stendal .

Eufrozyna, Abbess of St. Clara in Trzebnica .

Anna (1253–after 26 June, 1295 ), Abbess at Owinska .

Eufemia (1253–1298), a nun at St. Clara, Wroclaw .

Elisabeth's husband died June 4, 1257 he left Elisabeth her Oprawa wdowia in which was an estate in Modrze . Elisabeth died on her estate 16 January 1265.

Elisabeth's granddaughter from her son was Elisabeth Richeza of Poland who became the second wife of Wenceslaus II of Bohemia
