This paper is concerned with the feminisation of contemporary Polish historical novel, especiallyof its biographical variant. Transforming traditional narratives and restoring the memoryof women in history are the most important tasks of herstory, a discipline born in the twentiethcentury out of the question about the role and place of women in the history of humankind. The authorof this paper pays particular attention to the texts of popular culture, especially biographical novelsabout women written by female writers, such as Ewa Stachniak, Janina Lesiak and Alina Zerling--Konopka. Historical novels written by female authors bring into sharp focus the postulates of feministliterary criticism, such as reclaiming the history of women by filling in the gaps in historicalnarratives and shifting the point of view, which allows for the depiction of the activity of womenin the fields traditionally considered male. What emerges from such novels are unobvious themes,but also the revision of the solidified images of famous figures. However, a considerable numberof those texts does not translate into their artistic merit.
