Elisabeth of Poland
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1300
Death: Dec. 29, 1380

Royalty, fourth child and second daughter of Wladislaw I and his wife Hedwig von Kalisch. On July 6th, 1320 she married Charles I Robert of Hungary whom she bore five children. Their marriage founded the polish-hungarian alliance that worked as a counterweight to the Luxemburg family in Bohemia which influenced the political powers in middle-europe. In 1339 her brother named her husband and their eldest son Louis as his successors when it became clear that he would have no male heir. After Kasimirs death Louis was hastily crowned King and named her regent in Poland. She was unfit to reign the country and the polish nobles became embittered that Louis cared little about their interest. The nobles revolted in 1375 and Elisabeth had to flee to Hungary. Nevertheless she remained Louis most influential advisor until her death.
