Note:   Ruprecht I was born on 27 March 1347, the eldest son of Wenzel I, Herzog von Schlesien-Liegnitz, and Herzogin Anna von Schlesien. His father died in 1364, leaving him and his four siblings under the guardianship of their uncle Ludwig I 'the Fair', Herzog von Schlesien-Liegnitz in Brieg. One year later, with his cousin Henryk VII, Ludwig's son, Ruprecht joined the visit to France of King Karl IV of Bohemia (the future emperor) to be crowned King of Arles. Ruprecht then visited a number of French cities, including Avignon, where he obtained from Pope Urban V the annulment of the excommunication of his late father. In 1370 he participated in the Reichstag (Diet) in Nuremberg, where for the first time he expressed his political views. Before 21 February 1372 Ruprecht married Hedwig Zaganska, widow of Kazimierz III 'the Great', king of Poland, and daughter of Henryk III-V Zelazny, duke Zaganski and Glogau, and Anna Plocka. Of their two daughters, Barbara would have progeny. The regency of his uncle Ludwig I continued until 1373, when Ruprecht began his personal rule over Legnica (Liegnitz). Despite the inclusion of his brother Wenceslaus II as co-ruler, Ruprecht was fully in charge over the duchy, though always in close cooperation of his uncle. As a result of pressure from Ludwig, Ruprecht signed an agreement with his younger brothers on 2 December 1372, under which they agreed not to divide the duchy of Legnica between them for the following ten years. The agreement was extended in subsequent years, and allowed Ruprecht to exercise full control over Legnica at the expense of his younger brothers; although they were co-rulers, they did not have any real power. In later years Ruprecht was actively involved in the dynastic struggles over the Silesian inheritance. On 21 May 1379 a treaty was concluded between Ruprecht and Wenceslas IV, king of Bohemia, which stipulated that after Ruprecht's homage to Wenceslas as his vassal, the king guaranteed his total control over the inheritance of all the descendants of his grandfather Boleslaw III 'the Generous', Herzog von Breslau, Liegnitz und Brieg. However, on 6 January 1383 Ruprecht had to give up his claims over the duchies of Wroclaw (Breslau), Swidnica (Schweidnitz) and Jawor (Jauer). After the death of his brother-in-law Henryk VIII 'the Sparrow', duke of Glogau, on 14 March 1397, Ruprecht took the regency on behalf of Henryk's minor sons until 1401. The successive deaths of his uncle Ludwig I (on 6 December 1398) and Ludwig's son Henryk VII (on 11 July 1399) left Ruprecht as the head of the Silesian Legnica-Brzeg (Liegnitz-Brieg) branch of the Piasts, allowing him to act as a mediator in the disputes of his Silesian relatives (for example in 1399 between the dukes of Opole and the bishop of Lubusz, Jan Borschnitzem, and in 1400 with the sons of Henryk VIII, who wanted to share their dominions). In his internal policies, the two main problems for Ruprecht were to pay the debts of both his father and grandfather (which were successfully cancelled) and to problems with the Church (which was finally resolved with the election of his younger brother Wenceslaus II as bishop of Wroclaw). Like his uncle Ludwig I, Ruprecht was a generous patron of the arts. One of the artists supported by him was the Brzeg canon Piotr Byczyny, who wrote the _Chronicles of the Polish Dukes._ Ruprecht died around 12 January 1409, and was buried in the Church of God at Legnica. ----------------------- RUPRECHT ([1340/47]-1409 before 12 Jan). The Chronica principum Polonie names "ducem Rupertum, modernum Legnicensem dominum, Wenceslaum quondam Lubucensem nunc vero Wratislaviensum episcopus, Boleslaum et Heinricum decanum et canonicum Wratislavensem, postea episcopum Wratislavensem, nec non Hedwigim filiam" as the children of "dux Wenceslausi"[270]. He succeeded his father in 1364 as RUPRECHT I Duke of Liegnitz. The Catalogus abbatum Sanganensium records that "domina Hedwigis ducissa Saganensis�cum domino Wenczeslao episcopo Wratislaviensi et duce Ruperto Legnitczensi, quorum soror fuit" founded "in ecclesia collegiata dominici�in Legnitcz"[271]. m (before 10 Feb 1372) as her second husband, HEDWIG von Glogau, widow of KAZIMIERZ III "Wielki/the Great" King of Poland, daughter of HEINRICH V Duke of Glogau and Sagan [Piast] & his wife Anna of Mazovia [Piast] ([before 1350]-27 Mar 1390).
