Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.Leszek I the White (Polish: Leszek Biały; c. 1186 – 1227) also listed by some sources as Leszek II the White,' was Prince of Sandomierz and (from 1202 or 1206) of Kraków. Leszek was the ruler of Poland from 1194-1227 except for the short periods following when he was deposed in 1200, 1201 and 1206. Both Mieszko III and Wladyslaw III Spindleshanks constested Leszek's right to be king during this era. Leszek was actually crowned in 1202. Other sources give an even more complicated picture of Leszek's rule, where between 1198 and 1211 there were even more points of Leszek's removal from the throne. He is considered in this plan to have been ousted in 1198, restored in 1199, ousted in 1202 and restored again in 1206 and then ousted a third time in 1210 and restored in 1211. The third ousting involved putting Mieszko IV Tanglefoot in as the chief ruler of Poland. Leszek was the son of Casimir II the Just and his wife Helen of Znojmo. He made claims to the territory of Sandomierz on the death of Casimir. In 1205 Leszek defeated the Rus' army of Prince Roman the Great at the Battle of Zawichost in Lesser Poland.
