There are kings and rulers that are remembered long by the nation. Although they might not have been great patriots or diplomats, their deeds helped a given country to develop or strengthen its identity.
One of them is Wladyslaw Lokietek, a short king that was so stubborn that in the 12th century he managed to unite the lands that his ancestor divided between his sons. He might have done it for his own prosperity or for his off-springs but nobody knows who the Poles would be now, if he would not start the process. He proves that it is not the posture but deeds who make us great people.
Short man, great deeds.
