LifeEdit

There are little notices about Henry II's life. Since his early years, he was destined to the Church career and had to study at the University of Bologna. According to the chronicle of Jan Długosz, Henry II died during his return trip to Poland on 22 December 1394. He was buried in the Ducal vault of the Franciscan church in Opole.
