Upper Silesia

The southern part of Silesia, which 1163 was given to Mieszko I, was called Oberschlesien (Upper Silesia) or Schlesien-Ratibor after its capitol. Just like Lower Silesia was this duchy partitioned repeatedly between descendants to the first duke and they also encouraged German immigration. But unlike Lower Silesia did Upper Silesia retain a considerable Polish population and parts of it was sold to Poland 1457 (Auschwitz), 1494 and 1521 (Zator). However all dukes in Upper Silesia recognised Bohemia's supremacy over Silesia from 1327. When Prussia conquered Silesia 1742 was a part of Upper Silesia left under Bohemian-Austrian rule. After the First World War was Upper Silesia partitioned between Germany, Poland and Czechoslovakia. Germany's part of Upper Silesia was lost to Poland after the Second World War.
