Wartislaw I Duke of Pomerania, by Wikipedia

Wartislaw I (* around 1100 ; † before 1148 in Stolpe ) was a prince in Pomerania . He is considered the progenitor of the Griffin dynasty and founder of the Pomeranian ducal house . He significantly promoted the introduction of Christianity in Pomerania.

Life

Nothing is known about the origin of Wartislaw. Its first mention can be found in the vita of the bishop and missionary Otto von Bamberg . His first mission trip took place on behalf of Polish (senior) Duke Bolesław III. Schiefmund , who had conquered the estuary of the Oder and with the city of Stettin in 1121/1122. Wartislaw I. took over the administration of Bolesław III. conquered territory of the Liutizen west of the Oder. In 1128 Otto von Bamberg made a second mission trip to this area, this time under the protection of King Lothar of Supplinburg and the Margrave (at that time still the Mark Lausitz ) Albrecht the Bear. In the presence of Otto and Wartislaw, the nobles of the state of Pentecost decided in 1128 at a state parliament in Usedom to adopt Christianity.

In 1135 Wartislaws fiefdom Boleslaw had to recognize the fiefdom of the Holy / Roman Empire for the areas west of the Oder . As a result, Wartislaw, as an aftervasal, was also liable to the Reich as a fief.

According to various sources, Wartislaw died between 1135 and 1148. He is said to have been slain near Stolpe an der Peene , where a pagan cult site was possibly located, by a turn that opposed Christianization. His brother Ratibor later donated a church at the place where Wartislaw was probably buried, and in 1153 the Stolpe Monastery with Wartislaw's sons .

Wartislaw I was married twice. His first wife was named Heila, her connection to the Welfenhaus is not documented. His second wife Ida was allegedly a Danish princess and is believed to be the mother of his sons Bogislaw I and Casimir I , who were probably born after 1124. His brother Ratibor, founder of the sideline of the Ratiboriden , took over the guardianship of the children after Wartislaw's death.
