Short history of the Radziwill Family by Peter Paul Bajer (4734 words)
Among the immediate descendants of Mikolaj Krzysztof the Little Orphan and in the next two generations, there was a lack of notable characters who would play a major role in politics or cultural mecenate, despite the fact that many of them occupied the highest positions in Rzeczpospolita.
Those Radziwills who decided to stay in Poland despite prosecution and hardship faced by all 'enemies of the working class', were able to adapt to the new political situation with perseverance and resourcefulness.
Radziwill's exclusivity is also sustained by the upholding of a patriotic/religious ideology associated with the Polish aristocratic circles and based on the principle of noblesse oblige-binding them personally to an intensive service towards the common good.
