if you would like to know who would be today the king of poland nobody, because we are a "clever nation" and at the end of our monarhy times our parlament chose a new king, after he died we chose a new one at the end it made many problems and ended with tearing poland apart from our neighbours at the end poland disapeered from europs maps for over 123 years

It's hard to say. Our last king Stanisław II August have a morgantic - wife since 1784 - Elżbieta Szydłowska-Grabowska and childrens with her counts Grabowski http://www.jurzak.pl/. And he've got childrens with his concubines: Catherine II of Russia and with princess Magdalena Agnieszka Lubomirska (her mother Izabella Morsztyn was a grandaughter of Henry Gordon 2 Marquess of Huntly and lady Anne Campbell).

After the king probably Czartoryski and Radziwiłł families and Lubomirski. The king was related to these aristocratics families with Czartoryski by mother Constance

Hi von Schlesian!
Monarchs 'reign' but behind closed doors, some of them have a deep influence in the decisions taken by their PMs. And if some monarchs show their support for one or the other candidate or their decisions (and sometimes they do), they can be very influential with the people as well.

(BTW and off-topic: do you know anything about Polish nobility? If you find an Internet site, could you let me know?)
Thank you in advance! :)

Due to the rather sporadic nature of Poland's monarchy (Duchies, Grand Duchies under other existing monarchs, elector-Kingdoms etcetcetc), following the paths of Polands' monarchs (and why they became so) is rather a long and winding one. The nobility however are quite a lot easier to track down and follow. Though I'm afraid I cannot give any examples of references at the moment, I shall begin the hunt.

Yes, I have the same problem. Besides, Polish territory has been 'moved' several times so I also found they overlap with Prussian principalities.
Thanks a lot and good luck in your hunt! :)

Maybe in the future, female monarchs would also be styled as King. I mean Jadwiga of Poland was crowned King. Same with Cleopatra being crowned as Pharoah. And Japanese female sovereigns have been styled as Tenno (like Akihito Tenno) in the past.
Yes, St. Jadwiga was a King but only to time of her marriage with Władysław Jagiełło in 1386. After his crowned to King of Poland she became a Queen.

Do you think it's because Wladyslaw was also sovereign of Lithuania that's why he became co-sovereign and because Lithuania and Poland was joined together?

Do you think if Wladyslaw wasn't a sovereign, and had a lower title, do you thnk Jadwiga would've remained King?

Around their wedding in 1386 Władysław was only a Grand Duke of some pagan, big country near Poland. Jadwiga was a King - ruler from two years. She came from old and good conected families from both sides.
That's all true but it was much easier than you think.
After Władysław wedding and coronation in 1386 for the Polish King, Jadwiga keep her title of the King. But since her wedding Jadwiga technically become a wife of the King and she was known from this moment as a Queen. Only think - two Kings in one country?! No matter of the fact that they had different gender. That's abnormal situation specially in the Middle Ages!

Yes, Jogaila (first Lituanian name) Władysław (Christian name) was a Grand Duke of Lithuania twice: 1377-1381 and 1382-1401.

Vladislaus by God's grace king of Poland, and lands of Kraków, Sandomierz, Sieradz, Łęczyca, Kuyavia, supreme-prince of Lithuania, lord and heir of Pomerania and Ruthenia, etc.


He's first-born son Władysław III Warneńczyk/ Vladislaus III of Varna was Vladislaus by God's grace king of Poland, Hungary, Dalmatia, Croatia, and lands of Kraków, Sandomierz, Sieradz, Łęczyca, Kuyavia, grand duke of Lithuania, lord and heir of Pomerania and Ruthenia .

If she didn't married Wladyslaw she would be compelled to marry another man... The dynasty must going on- that was "the only rule and duty" for royal women - to give birth to heir....

My godmother is a Poniatowski or in her case a Poniatowska and the main branch of her family is in France although her branch is in Mexico and she divides her time between Mexico City and Texas. Her cousin was Minister of the Interior under Valery Giscard D'Estaing and his daughter was a close friend of Princess Caroline. There are a few other Polish Royals but considering that Poland ceased to exist as a country for most of the 19th century there has not been a king since Stanislas Augustus (Poniatowski). If you have any specific questions about the Poniatowskis I can ask her in January when I stay with her in.

Marie Kazimiera Sobieska was not a French princess but a member of the French nobility. She went to Poland as a child to be a lady-in-waiting for an earlier queen, Ludwika Maria Gonzaga. She married Jan Sobieski after the death of her first husband, another Polish magnate, Jan Zamoyski.
