Msg event.pngThe Commonwealth Navy


Wladyslaw IV Vasa took the Polish throne in 1632 and announced creation of a war fleet according to needs of Commonwealth through his signed and sworn Pacta Conventa. He created a Naval Commission with Gerard Denhoff to fulfill the task of building a new fleet. The Sejm did not support the new fleet due to high costs and reluctance to strengthen the king's power which crippled king Wladyslaw's plans. The king chose wealthy members to the Commission, including the merchant and owner of a merchant fleet from Danzig, Georg Hewel, to finance the new war fleet. Ten ships, of which a few carried small caliber cannons, were given to Wladyslaw IV from Hewel and the new 'Polish Fleet' consisted of 10 ex-merchant ships, six smaller ships and one small galley, under the command of rear admiral Aleksander Seton. Due to unfortunate international alliances, a majority of defensive wars and a new armistice with Sweden removed the last of the king's argument for a Polish fleet and Wladyslaw decided to use his ships to organize the first Polish merchant company. Hewel's death stopped those plans and finally the ships were sold.

Msg event.pngVilnius University


Walerian Protasewicz, the bishop of Vilnius, purchased several buildings in the city center and established the Vilnian Academy in 1569, one year after the Lithuanian nobility had asked the Jesuits to create an institution of higher learning in Vilnius or Kaunas. The three divisions at the academy were humanities, philosophy, and theology. In 1570, a library was established, 2500 books were donated to the new college by Sigismund II Augustus and the first students enrolled into the Academy. Stefan Batory, King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania, granted the academy equal status with the Kraków Academy on April 1, 1579, and created the Alma Academia et Universitas Vilnensis Societatis Iesu. Pope Gregory XIII's bull of October 30, 1579 approved his edict and the first rector of the Academy was Piotr Skarga.

The three departments at the academy were liberal arts, law, and medicine. It had seven faculty positions for professors and from 1637 the school had the power to award doctor of philosophy diplomas.

Stanislaus Hosius, cardinal and the bishop of Warmia is worrying for the spiritual well-being of our country.

Msg event.pngThe Radziwill Bible & the Reformation in Poland


A group of Calvinist scholars has finished a translation of the Bible into Polish. The scholars have worked from the most original sources known and there is no doubt this is a fine work. The prospect of an even greater accessibility to Protestant ideas for the Polish population is however a frightening idea. Calvinism has already established its grip over some of our nobles and Lutheranism exists among our burghers for a long while now.

Msg event.pngElective Monarchy in Poland


On the death of the last Piast monarch in 1370, Polish nobles began drawing on ancient claims and historical precedent to assert their independence from the monarchy. At first, only a small part of the szlachta, or 'noble class', would assert its privilege to choose the next king (or, in 1384 and 1523 Queen, since they backed Jadwiga's and Anna's claims). But eventually the right to elect the ruler of Poland was extended to Polish nobles. Keep in mind that in Poland, nobility was inherited by all children of an entitled person, so at its peak, half a million Poles could claim a voice in the election - by far the widest possible franchise in Renaissance Europe and probably the largest 'democratic' system until American and French Republics. True royal elections began in 1573 at the election of Henry of Valois, since foreign princes were always claiming the Polish throne anyway, why not have the nobles choose among them.

During the Commonwealth period, the Kings of Poland and Grand Princes of Lithuania were elected by noble gatherings at a field in Wola, just outside Warsaw. Tens of thousands of nobles could be expected to attend, and the richest magnates would mingle with the poorest count in exchanges of favors and votes. This first election took four days to conclude (future ones would be smaller and over in a day or two) and these events would be full of parties, fairs and armed men. While the election was going on, royal power would be vested in an interrex, a temporary regent - usually the Primate of Warsaw, who would oversee the voting.

Msg event.pngThe Statute of Piotrkow


Under Jan Olbracht, the son of Kazimierz IV, the policy of giving concessions to the Nobility continued. In 1496 the Statute of Piotrkow was instituted. It implied that serfdom was strengthened and accepted in law. It forbade all workers to move from their villages, except one every year. It later was extended with a work duty of six days a week. At this point the peasants of Poland had lost not only all power, but also their freedom. The power lay in the hands of the Nobility.

Msg event.pngThe Polish Inheritance of Mazovia


The Duchy of Mazovia had long been ruled by a line of the Piast Dynasty, but because of the power of Poland she most often followed the suggestions of Polish foreign policy. In 1526 the last Piast ruler died and the Polish crown inherited Mazovia. Exactly what would be done with the lands was not clear, but in the end it became a Royal fief. And later the new Polish capital would be placed in the sleepy hamlet of Warszawa.

Msg event.pngThe King of the Jesuits


Sigismund III was a son of King Johan III of Sweden. His father was a man that ruled a staunch Protestant country, but with a personal leaning toward Catholicism. Sigismund was brought up by Jesuits and preferred their company. Religion was as important to him as politics and one of his great obsessions was to make Catholicism the State-religion of Poland. This was perhaps the most impossible task for a man, even if king, to accomplish in Poland. The Freedom of religion and the ideological principle of religious tolerance was the foundation of Polish society. Sigismund was strong-willed and stubborn, so he tried nevertheless. He of course had the whole country against him and failed. These acts also made him many enemies, which would stop him from reforming the government and strengthening Royal power in the first decade of the 17th century.

Msg event.pngThe Sobieskian Army Reforms


When Jan Sobieski became king in 1674 he was already a renowned and glorious military leader. In fact he started out as a general and ended up as a king. His reform of the Polish army thus started long before he became king, but it was under his Royal leadership that the strong effects of the reforms made a lasting impression on history. The New Polish Army saved Vienna from the onslaught of the Ottomans and forever stopped their advance. Unfortunately in the long run it helped Austria more than it helped Poland.

Msg event.pngTurko-Polish Tension


Poland and the Ottoman Empire came into conflict in the 1670's and 80's when the Cossacks in the Polish part of the divided Ukraine submitted to the Ottoman Empire and called for Tatar aid against Poland. Victories won by hetman Jan Sobieski only temporarily forestalled the threat, and in 1672 the Commonwealth faced a major invasion by the Ottoman Empire. The fall of the key border fortress Kamieniec Podolski was followed by the humiliating Peace of Buczacz. In 1683 Sobieski led a relief army to Vienna, besieged by the Ottomans, and as supreme commander of the allied forces won a resounding victory that marked the beginning of Ottoman withdrawal from Europe.

Msg event.pngThe Great Northern Conflict


In 1697, the 15 years old Charles XII ascended the Swedish throne. Seeing the opportunity, the Russian Czar Peter I allied with Denmark and Poland-Saxony in 1699. However, with British and Dutch naval assistance, Charles XII landed on Zealand and promptly defeated the Danes, then moved to Estland where his badly outnumbered Swedes (1 to 5) won a crushing victory over the Russians. Instead of finishing the Russians, Charles moved against August II of Poland-Saxony and drove him out of Poland in 1704 (having the pro-Swedish Stanislaw Leszczynski elected King), then subjugating Saxony in 1706. While the Russians started the construction of St Petersburg (1703) and rebuilt their armies, they also took parts of Estland (1704-1706). Charles then decided to march to Moscow via the Ukraine where the Cossacks under Mazeppa had again risen in revolt (1708). The harsh winter and Russian raids decimated his army and he was finally beaten at the battle of Poltava in 1709. The wounded king escaped to the Ottomans. The Russians were encircled by the Ottomans on the Prut River, but Peter succeeded through bribery to obtain a safe conduct in exchange for Azov. While Charles was still exiled in Turkey, Russian, Danish, Hanoverian and even Prussian troops captured most of the Swedish land around the Baltic. Having emerged from Turkish internment, Charles got killed in 1718 in front of the Norwegian fortress of Frederickshald. In the peace treaties that followed Sweden lost most of her Baltic empire.

Msg event.pngNicolaus Copernicus


In 1543, the year of his death, Nicolaus Copernicus published On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres. The work argued for a heliocentric model of the universe as opposed to the common Ptolemaic view of an Earth-centered universe. This work threatened the literal truth of the Bible as well as the long established geo-centric view of the universe. Copernicus had no mathematical backing for his argument but this would be provided by later generations of astronomers and mathematicians.

Msg event.pngUrszula Meyerin


Her beauty caught the eye of the queen who choose her as the king's mistress and Urszula joined the court when she was 22 years old as a chamberlain. The strict religious woman held great influence on the king and queen, but was very unpopular because of her involvement in affairs of state. Her favorites were appointed to state positions due to her influence and she was called many scornful things such as 'minister in a skirt', 'Jesuit's bigotry', the King's mistress and 'obscene favorite'. Despite many marriage offers, Urszula has never married. The Pope sent her a Golden Rose, who she corresponded with, as an award for an exceptionally virtuous life. The king is now old and often ill, something Urszula Meyerin has taken advantage of. She is the one who signs official state documents and receives foreign ambassadors, and is the ruler in all but name.

Msg event.pngElzbieta Helena Sieniawska


The wealthy, well educated lady-in-waiting of the queen Elzbieta Helena Sieniawska, married to Adam Mikolaj Sieniawski, Grand Hetman of the Crown, has finally managed to enforce that her property - inherited from her father the Polish Solomon - is hers and that her husband has no business with her business. Her great wisdom, reason and shrewdness is why she is often deployed on diplomatic missions and other obligations her husband cannot cope with. Many calls her 'a great ruler and the First Lady of the Republic'. She has meetings with the whole of Europe and is entangled in many political matters, including who will be put upon the [Root.GetAdjective] throne. The anti-Habsburg insurrection in Hungary, with the Prince of Transylvania Francis II Rákãczi as leader of the insurrection, had her support and the Prince her love. While trying to negotiate an agreement between the Tsar of Russia and the king of Sweden, she was abducted by the Swedish army and met with the king before she was released. Her husband negotiated with the Tsar his candidature to the throne, something Elzbieta disapproved of and threatened him with divorce if he did not stop the negotiations. Adam Mikolaj Sieniawski never managed to grasp the throne. Her unscrupulous acts as an politician has made Charles XII of Sweden refer to her as 'that most accursed woman'. She has many secret contacts with different camps and conducts various personal intrigues, many to reduce outside influence in the land.

Before she married Wladyslaw IV, Marie Louise Gonzaga had a literary salon in Paris and spent many years in a convent. Before the wedding she had to change her name to Ludwika Maria as the name Maria is reserved for Mary, mother of Jesus here in $COUNTRY$. Not two years later, Wladyslaw IV died and she married John Casimir. The [Root.GetAdjective] nobility finds her a peculiar and scandalous woman, as she has very ambitious economic and political plans and keeps meddling with [Root.GetAdjective] politics. Active and energetic, she despises boredom and has many different hobbies to entertain herself. For example, she founded the newspaper The [Root.GetAdjective] Mercury, the convent of the Order of the Visitation of Holy Mary and opened the first literary salon in $COUNTRY$. Tito Livio Burattini thrives under her patronage and is currently building a model aircraft. Perhaps this Italian polymath will be the first inventor to fly?

Msg event.pngThe Nieszawa Privileges-'Conventiones Particulares'

After the concessions to the Nobility in 1425 and during the Thirteen Years War Kazimierz IV was again forced to new concessions. To be able to raise troops, among them a lot of mercenaries, the King needed money from the Szlachta. In an effort to solve the monarchy's pressing problems he had to accept the Nieszawa Privileges implying that the Nobility had the right to hold local Conventiones Particulares, without which no troops could be raised and no taxes extracted. In this way the Nobility got an efficient and powerful organization with a joint mutual interest, and power of the military and the taxation legislative procedure.

Msg event.pngEnding the Stagnation - Jan Sobieski


On 12 September 1683 an allied army under the leadership of King Jan Sobieski relieved Vienna from the besieging Ottomans. At this point the King's name flew over Europe. In that very moment Jan Sobieski had such status and personal power coming from his very person that he could have ended the stagnation of Poland or at least he could have tried. Merely the different political climate during the earlier days of his reign is a proof of him being a very special monarch. He was never that limited by vetoes or articles as earlier monarchs, but in the end he chose a different path. He chose to continue the campaign against the Ottoman, a campaign he could not win decisively, while at the same time having to cope with growing dissent from magnates disliking this policy. When he stopped campaigning he suffered heavily from gallstones and he never managed to make the magnates forget that he was just one of them. He never managed to translate his popularity in the Szlachta, as whole, into concerted political action. If he instead had gone home after relieving Vienna and picked a fight with the magnates something completely different might have happened. Well who knows...?

Msg event.pngEnding the Stagnation - Friedrich Augustus II


In 1697 Friedrich Augustus II became king of Poland. His reputation was never good. He was a German and because of his inability to win a war he himself had started he is considered a rather bad Polish king. However, when Friedrich Augustus became king he had a plan. He was not a stupid man, and he intended to turn the Commonwealth into a centralized monarchical state. He was a child of the same ideas as his contemporaries in Berlin, Hannover and München, and he needed a war to accomplish it. Like Sobieski, he saw war as the surest way to gain prestige and a free hand to carry out his plan. Now Friedrich Augustus made certain mistakes. He and his allies underestimated the ease with which they would smash the eighteen year old monarch of Sweden and secondly Friedrich August was no Sobieskian General. The failure of the war and his lost prestige from being a lousy soldier and having been forced to a humiliating abdication ruined every chance to reform anything. Instead he ruined any chance for monarchism in Poland as his return was with the arrivals of Russian bayonets. However... had he won the war and Poland had been a winner while Russia had become rather mauled then his position would have been different. Instead of buying art for his castles in Dresden he might very well have used that prestige and military power with boldness and brute force to accomplish the impossible...

Msg event.pngEnding the Stagnation - Stanislaus Poniatowski


After the ascension of Stanislaus Poniatowski to the Polish throne, a feverish wave of reforms took place. In 1766 Chancellor Zamoyski laid before the Sejm his project for constitutional reform which included the abolition of the Liberum Veto. This elicited an immediate response from St Petersburg and Berlin, both of which threatened with war if it were not withdrawn, and if the Confederated Sejm was not immediately dissolved. The King and his supporters had little to do but comply, trapped in Warszawa as they were. But people started to wake up from their 'Saxon slumber' and the Confederates refused to comply. At the same time some magnates wanted to get rid of the upstart Stanislaus and united with Russian forces under the young general Suvorov, they fought and destroyed the Confederated troops. Thus the Effort to end stagnation brought the First Partition of Poland.

Msg event.pngEnding the Stagnation - King Stanislaus


In 1787 King Stanislaus approached Catherine of Russia with a bargain. Poland will raise a substantial army and support Russia in her war with the Ottomans, and make flanking maneuvers against potential attacks from Prussia or Sweden. The move was smart as it would mean that the king would have an army that could defend the country from enemies abroad and within, but Catherine did not fall for. She preferred having Poland as a piece of no-man's-land in between her and Prussia and Austria. As this failed, the King stood without a plan and a decent foreign policy. The next year members of the so-called 'Patriotic Party' took matters in their own hands in the Great Sejm. It voted an increase of the army and vested control over it in a Sejm Commission. It placed the conduct of foreign policy in the hands of another Sejm Commission. It also abolished the Permanent Council that had governed the country since 1772 and imposed tax on incomes from lands, 10 percent for the Szlachta and 20 percent for the Church. In 1791 the king arrived from his isolation since the failure with Catherine and together with Stanislaw Potocki and Hugo Kollataj he drafted the New Constitution of May 3. This became the first written Constitution in Europe and a satisfactory compromise between the republicanism of Potocki, the radicalism of Kollataj and the monarchism of the king. Again Catherine the Great reacted, and as circumstances went against Poland, peace was signed between the Ottomans and Russia, and 89000 seasoned veterans now stood against the 37000 staunchly heroic, but no less, newly recruited Poles. No one helped Poland and the outcome was devastating. Thus the Effort to end stagnation brought the Second Partition of Poland.

Msg event.pngThe Pacta Conventa and the Henrykian Articles

In 1572 the Jagiellon Dynasty was extinct and a new king was to elected. His name was Henri d'Anjou. On his election he was forced to sign what has later been called the Henrykian Articles, which rectified that Poland was an elective monarchy from then on. He also signed the Pacta Conventa, which was a formal contract between the elected monarch and the Sejm. In practice the monarch lost all power over his country. He had no power over governmental officials and he had a mere 3000 men strong Royal Army. To get anything extra he had to plead with the Sejm for permission. At this moment Poland effectively stopped being a monarchy, as the monarch was a mere figurehead, and instead a true Noble Republic.

After nearly a decade of cold cooperation, Ilias was caught plotting to once again seize the throne for himself, but was discovered by Stefan who had his eyes gouged out.
Ilias sought refuge in Poland, where he had once been imprisoned, and vowed revenge against Stefan. Though he died shortly after, his son Roman has donned his father's mantle and now seeks Polish support for his own bid for the Moldavian throne. Should we support his efforts, Roman promises that the Principality of Moldavia will pledge itself as a subject of Poland in perpetuity.

While it would be prestigeous to keep the city for ourselves, the advisors of [Root.Monarch.GetName] suggest to re-establish the state of Byzantium or the great Latin Empire.

It is no secret that power and influence have an adverse effect on people. However, power wielded carefully and guided by a steady hand can yield tremendously positive results for our foreign and domestic affairs. The infantile nobles of Lithuania have been pestering us with their refusal to participate in the Sejm Diets and congregations, grinding the entire process to a halt. If they do not comprehend the diplomatic tongue, perhaps they would be more atuned to a show of strength at the expense of their own lands?

Apparently, the local noble of Poland who was recently crowned a King decided, against the calls of his own advisors, to steer his nation away from its ties to Lithuania, turning its gaze upon the West. As a result, the monarch of Poland has officially petitioned for the entry of his country in the Holy Roman Empire.
