Regents of Great Poland

The province of Great Poland in western central Poland is the cradle of the Polish kingdom and its main city Poznan functioned as Poland's capitol until 1038.  The city of Gniezno was also important since Poland's arch bishop resided there since the creation of the diocese in the year 1000. Great Poland became a separate principality in 1138 when Poland was partitioned between the sons of Boleslaw III. Great Poland it self was later also divided into  minor principalities from time to time. These were Poznan, Gniezno and Kalisz. In the early 14th century became Great Poland a part of the restored Polish kingdom.
