Jan III Sobieski. Portrait of the King


A story about Jan Sobieski, his family, upbringing and education, his military expeditions and fought battles, but also his successful political career, not free from downturns. It also tells us about the king’s passions and loves, his wife and children, his scathing sense of humour, favourite pastimes and last but not least, his extensive mind, grasping diversified fields of knowledge.

Patronage of King Jan III (e-learning)

Popular opinion presents Jan III as a warrior king who defended Latin Europe against Ottoman invaders. It is therefore worth recalling that he was also a connoisseur of art and a great lover of books. In his leisure time he would indulge in reading and hold erudite discussions with his secretaries and visitors who came to Wilanów from different parts of the world.
