The Gryfici also Świebodzice was a Polish medieval knighthood family. They occupied a dominant position among the nobles of Lesser Poland in the 12th and 13th century.


The family name comes from the emblem Gryf (a Griffin) of their coat of arms. In particular for the period before the 14th century they are also called Świebodzice, because of their battle cry: Świeboda, (freedom, liberty).[1] Jan Długosz connected the family with the House of Griffins. According to some historians, the Gryfici family, the House of Griffins and the House of Sobiesław are descendants of a branch of the Piast dynasty and their progenitor was one of the younger brothers of Boleslaw the Brave - Świętopełk.[2]
