Postać Zygmunta Luksemburskiego w ujęciu Jana Długosza
The Presentation of Sigmund of Luxembourg in the Works of Jan Długosz
Languages of publication
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.
