|Duke of the Polans|
|Tenure||c. 930/c. 950 - c. 950-60|
|Issue||Mieszko I of Poland |
|House||House of Piast|
Siemomys? or Ziemomys? (died c. 950-960) was the third duke of Poland of the Piast dynasty, and the father of Poland's first Christian ruler, Mieszko I. He was listed by Gallus Anonymous in his Gesta principum Polonorum and was the son of Lestek, the second known Duke of the Polans. According to Gallus' account and historical research, Siemomys? has been credited with leaving the lands of Polans, Goplans and Masovians to his son Mieszko I, who further expanded them during his reign.
He supposedly reigned from around 930 (although some historians believe that he reigned from around 950). Siemomys? united the lands of Polanie, Goplanie, and Mazowszanie (however, some historians think that perhaps his father did it first). His burial place is unknown.
Siemomys?'s wife (or wives) is unknown. There is a theory that W?odzis?aw's (prince of the L?dzianie tribe) daughter could have been Siemomys?'s wife, but there is no historical evidence to support this. Formerly it was thought that his wife was named Gorka, but Oswald Balzer refuted this view in 1895. Mieszko I and Czcibor were his sons.
