Gallus Anonymus (Polonized variant: Gall Anonim) is the name traditionally given to the anonymous author of Gesta principum Polonorum (Deeds of the Princes of the Poles), composed in Latin about 1115.
Gallus is generally regarded as the first historian to have described Polish history. His Chronicles are an obligatory text for university courses in Poland's history. Very little is known of the author himself.
