Samborides


Samborides

The Samborides ( _de. Samboriden) or House of Sobiesław ( _pl. Sobiesławice) were a Pomeranian dynasty which ruled from 1155 to 1294 in Pomerelia, at which time the dynasty died out. Pomerelia is a historical region in the today's Gdańsk Pomerania area. It reached partially up to the western bank of the Vistula River, but never to the eastern bank.

In medieval Latin, at the time of the Duchy of Pomerelia the region was referred to as Pomerania, although there were distinct Pomeranian duchies in the West, also referred to as "Slavia", which were ruled by the non-related Griffin House of Pomerania dynasty whose dukes were entiteled "Dukes of Pomerania" just as the Pomerelian ones. In Polish usage, "Pomorze" (Pomerania) is even preferrably used for Pomerelia. This may cause some confusion, as after the Samborides extinction the title "Duke of Pomerania" as well as the term "Duchy of Pomerania" would be used for the Griffin dukes and their duchies exclusively.

The dynasty received their titles ("Herzog", meaning duke) and liens from the Holy Roman Empire. The Polish name "House of Sobieslaw" derives from Sobieslaw I, while "Samborides" as used in English and German derives from his probable son, Sambor I. Because records concerning Sobieslaw I, the father of Sambor, are scant, the noble ancestry starts with Sambor.
