Before the German invasion, Sikoski had no official position in Poland whatsoever.
While the idea of an English king of Poland may be odd there has almost certainly been a half Polish king of England.
As to which King of England was half Polish I am surprised Mr Mills did not get the answer. The Encomium Emmae Regina says this about Cnut who obtained the English throne in 1016 and his brother Haraldr after the death of their father Swein Forkbeard “They also, in fact, went to the land of the Slavs and brought back their mother, who resided there”. The Chronicle of Thietmar of Merseburg apparently backs this up but that is not so easy to get hold of. His mother was very likely a daughter of King Mieszko the 1. There is a bit on Wikipedia about it.
