Chronicon Polono-Silesiacum (Polish: Kronika polsko-śląska, Polish-Silesian Chronicle) is a medieval Polish chronicle based on Wincenty Kadłubek's Chronica seu originale regum et principum Poloniae[1] and the anonymous poem Carmen Mauri,[2] with additional information on History of Silesia.[1] The date of its creation is uncertain and estimated at late 13th century, circa 1280[1] or at the turn of the century.[2] The unknown author might have been a Cistercians monk from the Lubiąż Abbey.[2]

The work was likely ordered by Henry IV of Silesia.[1]
