CHOSCISKO

HUSBAND:
CHOSCISKO. (Chostconis)(Choscisko)(Latin: Chosisconisu-S3)
Born probably about 770AD. (S2).

Choscisko is a legendary figure in a Polish prehistory, father of Piast the Wheelwright, the founder of the Piast dynasty. His name occurs in the first Polish chronicle, Cronicae et gesta ducum sive principum Polonorum by Gallus Anonymus, where the author refers three times to Piast as the son of Choscisko. (S1).

Choscisko's name is probably derived from a simplified pronunciation word Hastingsko derived from the term Hasding (word Hasding meant long-haired) difficult to pronounce in Old Slavonic. The other analysis suggests that Choscisko's name is probably derived from chost or chwost meaning tail in old slavic. (S1).

He died (probably about 840AD-S2)(in 861AD-S4).
