The name of Kraków is traditionally derived from Krakus (Krak, Grakch), the legendary founder of Kraków and a ruler of the tribe of Lechitians.. In Polish, Kraków is an archaic possessive form of Krak and essentially means "Krak's (town)".. Krakus's name may derive from "krakula", a Proto-Slavic word meaning a judge's staff, or a Proto-Slavic word "krak" meaning an oak, once a sacred tree most often associated with the concept of genealogy.. The first mention of Prince Krakus (then written as Grakch) dates back to 1190, although the town existed as early as the 7th century, inhabited by the tribe of Vistulans..The city's full official name is Stołeczne Królewskie Miasto Kraków, or "Royal Capital City of Kraków"..

Krak des Chevaliers (Arabic: حصن الفرسان‎), also Crac des Chevaliers, is a Crusader castle in Syria and one of the most important preserved medieval castles in the world.. The site was first inhabited in the 11th century by a settlement of Kurds; as a result it was known as Hisn al Akrad, meaning the "Castle of the Kurds". In 1142 it was given by Raymond II, Count of Tripoli, to the Knights Hospitaller.. It remained in their possession until it fell in 1271..The Hospitallers began rebuilding the castle in the 1140s and were finished by 1170 when an EQ damaged the castle...
