(p.374) 31 Mazovia
The Oxford History of Poland-Lithuania

Robert Frost

Oxford University Press

Chapter 31 examines the expansion of the union state through the incorporation of Mazovia in 1529. It provides a general overview of the history of Mazovia from 1138, and the occasionally tense relations between its Piast dukes and the Jagiellons. It looks at the fragmentation of the Mazovian duchy, and the process by which the Jagiellonians began to absorb parts of Mazovia back into the Polish realm. It examines the social, cultural, and political differences and links between Poland and Mazovia. It stresses that while there was some convergence, union was not inevitable. It looks at the failure of the Mazovian Piast dynasty, the negotiations for union after its extinction in 1526, and the incorporation of 1529.
