He was the eldest son of Bolesław the Elder, Duke of Niemodlin, by his wife Euphemia, daughter of Henry VI the Good, Duke of Wrocław.

Life[edit]

In 1355, thanks to the contacts of his father in the Prague court, Bolesław II was appointed Judge court by Emperor Charles IV.

After the death of his father by 1365, Bolesław II and his brothers inherited Niemodlin as co-rulers. He followed the politics of cooperation with the Bohemian Kingdom and in 1367 he obtain Prudnik as a hereditary fief.

Bolesław II never married or had children.[1] He died between 1367 and 1368 and his place of burial is unknown.

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ Some sources —included the Wikipedia articles of Charles I of Hungary and Maria of Bytom (see)—, appears that Princess Elisabeth of Hungary (d. 1367), was married with certain "Bolesław of Opole" (Bolesław Opolski). From a chronological point of view, there are strong suggestions that this unidentified prince could be Bolesław II of Niedmolin. However, because all known sources showed that the Duke of Niemodlin died unmarried and childless, maybe this "marriage" never took place and was only a broken engagement. Others sources, by the other hand, stated that Princess Elisabeth of Hungary never existed.
