Poppo (bishop of Kraków)

Poppo was a Bishop of Krakow.

He is considered to be the first Bishop of Kraków, although missionary Bishops were active in the years just prior to his bishopric. His name is known from the 13th century chronicle “Sede Vacante w krakowski” which lists the names of the first nine Bishops and Thietmar of Merseburg, who wrote that three bishops, Reinberna, Bishop of Solno-Kołobrzeskiej, Poppona of Kraków and Jan I of Wroclaw were all subjected to Bishops of Gniezno metropolis. He became Bishop around 1000AD and there is some speculation he was the same person as Gompon. He died 1008AD. If he was Gompo, he was also Bishop of Kraków for the years 1008-1016AD. However, the early chronicles do give him his own entry.
