And I don't know where you've taken that bit on Germanic settlements in Novgorod, as it appears to have been established by the Ilmen Slavs, as per Nestor the Chronicler.

now tell me why it´s called Silesia
It's certainly a Latin version, which would've been derived from River Ślęza or Mount Ślęża, a prehistoric holy place (link).

What about them? They're very nice. And there's only two of them AFAIK, located in the former border territories between the Kingdoms of Poland and Hungary.

Thank you for advertising castles in Poland. You actually could've posted them in even bigger format, like A3 sheet.

However, I don't like that fact that you seem to ignore the mod's request expressed previously (post #551) and hope it won't be left without comment from their side.

And well, your behaviour here, starting from the beginning (post #536), just goes to show some emotional deficiencies. I consider Germans as a nation with rich heritage, where a number of great intellectuals and inventors come from, but can understand though that in each nation there are narrow-minded and/or frustrated people, which are unable to cope with good traditions.

Fine examples of the castles erected by the Teutonic Order.

Anyway, how that German apostolic mission in the East (under the mandate of honourable Holy See) ended?




^ Battle of Grunwald 1410




^ Prussian Homage 1525

On your knees before Polish king (Zygmunt I Stary)...


Oh, and by the way: Poland - Feel Invited.

@ja.centy please, stop it.
Personally, I don't have problem with that 1/3(or more) of my country has strong german past, the problem is that most Poles still find difficult to accept that fact, and obsessively looking in history, searching their roots to pre-german history. On other hand it looks like Czechs don't have such problem...

Even if you didn´t managed it alone
You mean Lithuanians? Yes, both armies fought together against the Teutonic Knights, however they (LT) are reported to have retreated in the early stage of the battle. In historiography (link) it's explained as follows:

"Stephen Turnbull asserted that the Lithuanian retreat did not quite fit the tried formula of a false retreat. Such a retreat was usually staged by one or two units (as opposed to almost an entire army) and was swiftly followed by a counterattack (whereas the Lithuanians returned late in the battle)."

Besides, both sides had allies and mercenaries. In case of Teutonic Order, even help of pearls of the western European knighthood didn't help them.

And if we speak about managing it alone, well, don't make me laugh. Germans have always been too cowardish to defeat Poland alone. Only intrigues and plotting in the background with other Poland's enemies. Remember e.g. the Partitions of Poland (XVIII cent.) or Sept 1939? Truly glorious accomplishments that you must be proud of...

Edit: why did you delete your previous comment, Odoaker? C'mon, we're just warming up, aren't we?

Well, you're certainly free to think I can't accept the fact of strong German legacy on some Polish lands. However, it would mean you haven't understood anything from my posts and reaction to Odoaker's comments.
