Mieszko I raising as the first lord and receives baptism of newly formed country to become later known as POLAND.

Newest painting "Baptism of Poland" I made for an exhibition that was opening my Graduation show yesterday. Wanted to do another try/reinterpreation after main painting that is associated with that evening by Jan Matejko that I absolutely love.

So much work and so much fun on that one!

Miesko I was the first historical ruler of Poland, Prior rujlers are only known from a kinglist by an anonymous writer. The Piast dynasty was named after a historically unverified prince named Piast who supposedly succeeded Popiel II of the mythical Leskian dynasty. (C.500 - 842).

Well, it wasn't the baptism of all of Poland, it really just was Mieszko since we were kinda stubborn when it came to conversion

Prior to Mieszko I the history of Poland is problematical. The Piast dynasty starts c.800 or so. The line prior to that- ending with Popiel (II ?) may be mythical. That dynasty began c.500, but is likely mythical.
