Picture Name Father Birth Marriage Became Duchess Ceased to be Duchess Death Spouse
According to some sources,[1] Mieszko's wife died ca. 1303, but her name is unknown. The Obituary of the Church of St. Vincent in Wrocław showed the existence of a certain "Grzymisława, Duchess of Opole" (Grimizlaua ducissa Opuliensis) who was buried there around 13 September 1286.[2] Her parentage is also unknown, but her name suggests a Russian origin, probably member of the Rurikids.[3] Her title suggests that she maybe was the wife of Mieszko I or the first wife of Bolko I (Mieszko I's brother), or maybe a different person.
