Description[edit | edit source]

The Lendians were a confederation of West Slavic, Lechitic tribes inhabiting the borderland areas of today's Poland and Ukraine. Their land was the object of rivalry between Poland and the Kievan Rus' at the time of the early Piast dynasty. The Lendians succumbed to Ruthenisation as a result of deportation actions organised by Kievan princes and the activities of the Orthodox Church.
