It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Poland: Counts and Kings of Poland, Dukes of Silesia, Dukes of Glogau & Sagan
Piastus d 861
1. Ziemovitus/Siemowit d 892 according to the chronicles of Gallus Anonymus, the son of Piast the Wheelwright and Rzepicha. He was considered one of the four legendary Piast princes, but is now considered as a ruler who existed as an historical person.
He became the duke of the Polans in the 9th century after his father, son of Cho?cisko, refused to take the place of legendary Duke Popiel. Siemowit was elected as new duke by the wiec. According to a popular legend, Popiel was then eaten by mice in his tower on the Goplo lake. The only mention of Siemowit, along with his son Lestko and grandson Siemomys?, comes in the mediæval chronicle of Gallus Anonymus. Siemowit's grandson Mieszko I of the Piast dynasty is considered the first ruler of Poland to be baptized, though evidence of Arian Christians predating his reign was discovered in south Poland.
A. Lescus/Lestek b ca. 870-880. d 913 Though proof of his actual existence is unclear, if he did exist, he must have been an influential person, because the tribes that lived in what is now Poland were known as "Lestkowici".
GenEU starts with the following Ziemomysl, identifying him as "possibly a son of Leszek" ie. Lescus.
i. Ziemovisks or Ziemomysl, Count of Poland d c963 was the third Polish duke, and the father of Poland's first historical ruler, Mieszko I. He was son of Lestek. Siemomys? is credited with leaving the lands known as Greater Poland to his son Mieszko I, who further expanded them during his reign. His name in German was Ziemomysl.
a. Miecislaus or Mieszko I, Count of Poland b 922, d 25.05.993, 3rd son considered the de facto creator of the Polish state. He continued the policy of both his father and grandfather, who were rulers of the pagan tribes located in the area of present Greater Poland. Either through alliances or by use of military force, Mieszko extended the ongoing conquests and early in his reign subordinated Kuyavia and probably Gdansk Pomerania and Masovia. For most of his reign, Mieszko I was involved in warfare for the control of Western Pomerania, eventually conquering it up to the vicinity of the lower Odra River. During the last years of his life he fought the Bohemian state, winning Silesia and probably Lesser Poland.Mieszko I's marriage in 965 to the Premyslid princess Dobrawa and his baptism in 966 put him and his country in the cultural sphere of Western Christianity. Apart from the great conquests accomplished during his reign which proved to be fundamental for the future of Poland, Mieszko I was renowned for his internal reforms, aimed at expanding and improving the so-called war monarchy system.According to existing sources, Mieszko I was a wise politician, a talented military leader and charismatic ruler. He successfully used diplomacy, concluding an alliance with Bohemia first, and then with Sweden and the Holy Roman Empire. In foreign policy, he placed the interests of his country foremost, even entering into agreements with former enemies. On his death, he left to his sons a country of greatly expanded territory, with a well-established position in Europe. Mieszko I also appeared as "Dagome" in a papal document from about 1085, called Dagome iudex, which mentions a gift or dedication of Mieszko's land to the Pope the act took place almost a hundred years earlier.
