Bogislaw V, Duke of Pomerania


Bogislaw V, Duke of Pomerania

Bogislaw V ( _pl. Bogusław, _la. Bogislaus) (c. 1318 – 23 April 1374) was a Duke of Pomerania.

Eldest son of Duke Wartislaw IV and Elisabeth of Silesia, Bogislaw had two brothers, Barnim IV and Wartislaw V. The brothers were joint rulers from their father's death in 1326. They allied with King Casimir III of Poland, whose daughter Elisabeth married Bogislaw, against the Teutonic Order.

The death of Barnim led to a quarrel between Bogislaw and Wartislaw, which was settled by a treaty partitioning Pomerania between Bogislaw, Wartislaw, and Barnim's sons, also Bogislaw and Wartislaw. Bogislaw received part of Western Pomerania, Wartislaw received Neustettin (now Szczecinek), and the sons of Barnim received Rügen and Usedom.

Bogislaw's daughter Elisabeth married the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV, King of Bohemia in 1363 and he concluded an alliance with his son-in-law in 1370.

Marriages and children

On 28 February, 1343, Bogislaw married his first wife Elisabeth of Poland. She was a daughter of Casimir III of Poland and his first wife Aldona of Lithuania. They had two children:

*Elizabeth of Pomerania (1347 - 15 April, 1393). She married Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor.
*Casimir IV of Pomerania (c. 1351 - 2 January, 1377).

Elisabeth died in 1361. In 1362, Bogislaw V married his second wife Adelheid of Brunswick-Grubenhagen. She was a daughter of Ernest I, Duke Brunswick-Grubenhagen and Adelheid of Everstein. They had four children:
