The Legend of Boleslaw and his Knights

    When King Boleslaw died, Poland lost a very able and brave ruler, one who had united her and made her into a really great country. But is Boleslaw lost to Poland?, Some say no, for there is a legend about Boleslaw and his Knights.

    They say that Boleslaw, and his Knights who fought with him for he was a great warrior and earned his title of the Brave, by routing Poland's enemies he went into a mountain called Giewont. This mountain forms part of the Tatra mountain range, and it's shape, as seen from a certain angle, is like the head of a sleeping Knight.

    Within the mountain is a huge dark cavern and there sleeps King Boleslaw and his Knights. They are mounted on horses, with their swords beside them and lances couched. And if Poland ever needs them, then some one must awake them, and they will ride forth to serve her.

But once they have gone forth, they will never return.
