In Polish historiography, the Luxembourg dynasty was never very popular. Sigmund of Luxembourg was considered to be a friend of the Teutonic Knights and thus an enemy of Poland. The article deals with the image of this ruler presented by Jan Długosz, a great Polish historian of the 15th century. He focuses his attention on Sigmund as the king played a key role in Polish history for many years. Długosz does not hesitate to criticise the king, yet he appreciates his diplomatic talent. He presents him as a politician as well as a human being. His portrayal of the Roman and Hungarian Emperor appears to be accurate and true.
