After his father's death, Wladislaus, as his oldest son, became the High-Duke of Poland. He controlled the high-duke provinces of Kraków and Gniezno and also his hereditary province of Silesia.
In 1146 he was driven into exile by his younger brothers and died in Germany. In 1163 the province of Silesia was granted to his sons by the Polish duke Boleslaus Kedzierzawy. Subsequently Silesia was divided among his descendants and successors (going up to 17 duchies), until they died out in 1675.
