the historical name of one of the provinces of Poland. Originally (9th to 11th centuries), Wiel-kopolska was the territory in the basin of the Varta and Notec rivers. Later, Wielkopolska included the territory bounded by Silesia and the Lubusz Land on the west, Pomerania on the north, Mazovia on the east, and Malopolska on the south.
