Picture taken at Krzywousty Street in center of Szczecin city.
Boleslaw III Wrymouth (also known as Boleslaw III the Wry-mouthed, Polish: Bolesław III Krzywousty) (20 August 1086 – 28 October 1138) was King of Poland from 1107 until 1138. He was the only child of Prince Władyslaw I Herman and his first wife Judith, daughter of Vratislaus II of Bohemia. His last, and perhaps the most momentous act, was his will and testament known as "The Succession Statute" in which he divided the country among his sons, leading to almost 200 years of feudal fragmentation of the Polish Kingdom. Nevertheless, Bolesław became a symbol of Polish political aspirations until well into 19th century.
