ON THE SCOPE OF THE SUPPOSED AUTHORITY OF THE KINGDOM OF GERMANY AND THE MARK OF BRANDENBURG OVER THE WHOLE OF POMERANIA IN EARLY MIDDLE AGES
The artlicle is the continuation of the discussion with the views of Edward Rymar who argues that the rights of the Kingdom of Germany (and later of the Mark of Brandeburg by imperial grant) to Pomerania which can be observed in the Middle Ages are traceable back to Carolingian times. In this polemic with such views the author reassesses the sources used by E. Rymar and rebutts his arguments. The tributary relationships between Poland and Germany were instituted about 965/966. Mieszko I probably paid tribute only from the land of Lubusz. It was only under Kazimierz the Restorer (1040-1058) that the tribute was extended to the whole state. The reasons of that tribute, however, were connected with the whole of Polish-German relationships and not specifically those related to Pomerania only.
