Swantibor III, Duke of Pomerania

Swantibor III, Duke of Pomerania, or, according to a different way of counting, Swantibor I. was a member of the House of Griffins, a Duke of Pomerania-Stettin and for a while governor of the Mittelmark. Duke Swantibor III was a son of Barnim III, nicknamed the church founder, who ruled in the Teilherzogtum of Pomerania-Stettin. After Barnim III's death in 1368, his three surviving sons Casimir III, Swantibor III and Bogislaw VII ruled Pomerania-Stettin jointly. At the time of their succession to power, Denmark under King Waldemar IV of Denmark was at war with the Hanseatic League and its allies, in particular Duke Albert II of Mecklenburg; the late Duke Barnim III had sided with Denmark. His sons, made peace with Albert on 7 November 1368 and took a neutral stance towards Denmark; this brought them into conflict with Margrave Otto of Brandenburg. This conflict escalated to war. Duke Casimir III died during the siege of Chojna in 1372. After Casimir's death, Swantibor III and Bogislaw VII ruled jointly, with Swantibor III now playing the leading role.

He was faced with the challenge to maintain the position of Pomerania, splintered into several Teilherzogtumer, against its neighbours, in particular, against Brandenburg. When Emperor Charles IV tried to win Brandenburg for his relatives, Swantibor feared that Charles IV would revive old claims that Brandenburg held suzerainty over Pomerania. On 17 May 1373 all the Pomeranian dukes, that is, Swantibor III and Bogislaw VII from Pomerania-Stettin, Wartislaw VI and Bogislaw VI from Pomerania-Wolgast, Bogislaw V of Pomerania-Stolp and Philip of Rehberg, Bishop of Cammin, joined forces to protect their interests and their common ownership of Pomerania; when Emperor Charles IV had acquired Brandenburg for his family by the Treaty of Fürstenwalde of 15 August 1373, Charles initiated a friendly relation with the Pomeranian dukes, contrary to their expectations because he had married Bogislaw V's daughter, Elisabeth of Pomerania. Charles IV was friendly with Swantibor, who participated in imperial affairs, who served as an imperial judge.

The situation in Pomerania remained disorganized. The Dukes had conflicts with the Pomeranian cities and were short of funds due to their ongoing feuds; the relation with the neighbouring Teutonic Knights was inconsistent. In 1388, Swantibor III and Bogislaw VII served the order for a while. In 1403, Swantibor tried to make his son Otto II archbishop of Riga, against the will of the Order, who supported John of Wallenrode as their candidate for the position. In the Battle of Grunwald in 1410, a Pomeranian contingent led by Swantibor's son Casimir V, fought on the side of the Order; the Order lost Casimir was taken prisoner by the victorious Poles. He was, released soon afterwards. In 1388, Charles IV's son Sigismund enfeoffed Jobst of Moravia with the Margraviate of Brandenburg. Conflicts erupted again between Pomerania. In 1409, a compromise was reached between Jobst and Swantibor and Jobst enfeoffed Swantibor with the Lordship of Beeskow. Swantibor fell into disputes with the local nobility in Beeskow, who had supported him against Jobst.

After Jobst died in 1411, Sigismund enfeoffed Brandenburg to Burgrave Frederick VI of Nuremberg, who became Elector of Brandenburg as Frederick I. Swantibor remained on his post as governor of the Mittelmark. In 1412, however, he retired. Swantibor's sons soon fell into military conflicts with Frederick and Dukes Otto II and Casimir V defeated Frederick in the second Battle at the Kremmen Causeway. Swantibor III died on 21 June 1413, he was buried in the Cistercian monastery at Kołbacz. The verdict of the historian Martin Wehrmann was the Duke Swantibor seems to have been an energetic and capable ruler, due to the condition of his country, unable to achieve permanent results. In 1374, Swantibor III married Anna, the daughter of the Burgrave Albert the Beautiful of Nuremberg, granddaughter of Frederick IV, Burgrave of Nuremberg. Two sons and a daughter survived him: Otto II Casimir V Margaret, married Ulrich I, Duke of Mecklenburg-Stargard List of Pomeranian duchies and dukes Klaus Conrad: Herzogliche Schwäche und städtische Macht in der zweiten Hälfte des 14.
