About Polish History: One of my favourite Polish websites is culture.pl. They always provide a bit of a quirky look at Poland, Polish history, and of course, Polish culture. From them I learned the following, "In the year 966, Duke Mieszko I (Mye-shcko), who ruled several Western Slavic tribes, decided to consolidate his power by being baptised in the Latin Rite and marrying Doubravka, a princess of Bohemia. This is symbolically regarded as the creation of the state of Poland.  What this meant was that Poland became a Christian country, permanently joined Western culture, and moved under the pope’s protection."
The history continues, of course, but I will leave you to follow up on your own. 

About this Poster: A poster highlighting a scene in the the sixteenth century from the Codex of Behen in the Jagellonian Library of Krakow. 

Overall good condition with frayed edges which will disappear when the poster is framed. From a private collection.
