Schwennicke, Europaische Stammtafeln [ES] ii, 153, shows Adelajda,
d. aft 997, dau. of Duke Mieszko I of Poland, m. firstly to Michal and
secondly to his brother Geza, Duke of Hungary. Michal and Geza were sons
of Taksony. Geza was widower of Sarolt, dau. of Gyula, Duke of
ES ii, 120, shows Mieszko I, Duke of Poland, d. 25 May 992, m.
firstly NN, m. secondly Dobrawa, d. 977, dau. of Boleslaw I of Bohemia, m.
thirdly Oda of Haldensleben, dau. of Dietrich of Nordmark.
Mieszko's father is listed as Ziemomysl, dead in 964. ES does not
carry the line further.
Rafal Prinke in a recent post ("RFC-378 comments", 13 Dec 1998)
suggested that two more generations can be traced with some degree of
certainty: Leszek, Duke of Polanie, d. 921, and Siemowit, Duke of
Polanie. Prinke suggests that Piast should be considered as legendary.
Prinke himself may yet, of course, give a more authoritative response
to this query.
