For the population of Poland, see Demographics of Poland.For Polish nationality law or citizenship, see Polish nationality law.960 CE, when the Polans – an influential West Slavic tribe in the Greater Poland region, now home to such cities as Giecz, Gniezno, and Poznań – united various Lechitic tribes under what became the Piast dynasty, thus creating the Polish state.The subsequent Christianization of Poland, in 966 CE, marked Poland's advent to the community of Western Christendom.
The term "Polonia" is usually used in Poland to refer to people of Polish origin who live outside Polish borders, officially estimated at around 10 to 20 million.
Slavs have been in the territory of modern Poland for over 1500 years.
They organized into tribal units, of which the larger ones were later known as the Polish tribes; the names of many tribes are found on the list compiled by the anonymous Bavarian Geographer in the 9th century.
Estimates vary depending on source, though available data suggest a total number of around 60 million people worldwide (with roughly 21 million living outside of Poland, many of whom are not of Polish ethnicity, but Polish nationals). There are also Polish minorities in the surrounding countries including Germany, and indigenous minorities in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, northern and eastern Lithuania, western Ukraine, and western Belarus.
There are some smaller indigenous minorities in nearby countries such as Moldova.
Influences were also conveyed by immigrants (Hungarian, Sloval, Czech, Jewish, German and Dutch), political alliances (with Lithuania, Hungary, Saxony, France and Sweden), conquests of the Polish-Lithuanian state (Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Romania and Latvia) and conquerors of the Polish lands (the Russian Empire, Kingdom of Prussia and the Habsburg monarchy, later to be known as the Austrian Empire or Austria-Hungary).
