Silesia's borders and national affiliation have changed over time, both when it was a hereditary possession of noble houses and after the rise of modern nation-states. The first known states to hold power there were probably those of Greater Moravia at the end of the 9th century and Bohemia early in the 10th century. In the 10th century, Silesia was incorporated into the early Polish state, and after its division in the 12th century became a Piast duchy. In the 14th century, it became a constituent part of the Bohemian Crown Lands under the Holy Roman Empire, which passed to the Austrian Habsburg Monarchy in 1526.

Leopold was short and ugly; with an exaggerated Habsburg lip. His speech was awkward, manner uncouth, and personality unemotional and unsympathetic. He was also a man of industry, education, and of some political ability. Strong and healthy, he loved hunting and riding. He also had a taste for music and composed several Oratorios and Suites of Dances.
