Never was capital of Silesia
It was during Piast times:)

The dates are different from different sources from when it did
In 1202 it became the capital of the Opole principality, which included the entire Upper Silesia region.
^^ Britanica encyclopedia
Od XII w. stolica samodzielnego księstwa śląskiego - pierwszy władca Mieszko Plątonogi z dynastii Piastów zmarł w 1212. Ważny ośrodek handlowo-rzemieślniczy na drodze z Wrocławia do Krakowa.
^^ z strony o Opoplu księstwo slaskie oznaczalo caly slask!!

I think it was a mistake to make this city as the capital of separated region 10 years ago. I have the impression that city is impoverishing (or at least is standing by) since that time.
Would be better make it as a part of Lower Silesia.

I agree the Opole Viodovoship is Pointless it should be Divided between Upper Silesia and Lower Silesia. I dont think that we should do another region reform at the moment but sometime in the next 10 years. Opole Is a nice town though it is not as inpoverished as the Areas between Gdansk and Torun.
