History of Poland (1385–1569) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1752 words)
The Jagiellon Era 1385-1569, was dominated by the union of Poland with Lithuania under the Jagiellon Dynasty, founded by the Lithuanian grand duke Jagiello.
By the end of the fifteenth century, representatives of the Jagiellons reigned in Bohemia and Hungary as well as Poland-Lithuania, establishing the government of their clan over virtually all of Eastern Europe and Central Europe.
In fact, Jagiellons had to give privileges to the nobles to encourage them to elect their sons to be the successors.
