Wladislaus IV Vasa of Poland (Polish: Władysław IV Waza) (June 9, 1595 - May 20, 1648), was the son of Sigismund III of Poland (1566-1632), of the House of Vasa, and his wife Anna Austriaczka (also known as Anna of Austria or Anna Habsburżanka) (1573 - 1598). He reigned as King of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from November 8, 1632 to his death in 1648.

Wladislaw managed to avoid involving the Commonwealth in the bloody Thirty Years' War that raveaged Western Europe during his reign and was fairly successful in defending the Commonwealth against hostile invasions. He had failed, however, to realize his dreams of fame and conquest, nor had he reformed and strenghtened the Commonwealth. His death would mark the end the Golden Era of the Commonwealth, as conflicts and tensions Wladyslaw failed to resolve would lead in 1648 to the greatest of the Cossacks uprising, the Chmielnicki Uprising, and Swedish invasion, The Deluge. The victory of Gustavus Adolphus at the Battle of Breitenfeld (1631) The Thirty Years War was a conflict fought between the years 1618 and 1648, principally in the Central European territory of the Holy Roman Empire, but also involving most of the major continental powers. ...

Biography

His father Sigismund, grandson of Gustav I of Sweden, had succeded his father to the Swedish throne in 1592 only to be deposed from the throne by his uncle Charles IX of Sweden in 1599. This led to a long standing feud where the Polish kings of the house of Vasa claimed the Swedish throne. The effects of this were the Swedish War (1600-1629) and later, The Deluge of 1655. Sigismund, a devout Catholic, pursued other military conflicts abroad, barely avoiding involving the Commonwealth in the Thirty Year War and supported counter-reformation, both policies which lead to incrasing tensions inside the Commonwealth. Gustav I of Sweden, Gustav Vasa or Gustav Eriksson Vasa (1496 - 1560), became king of Sweden in 1523 and was the first monarch of the house of Vasa. ...

The Prince

Wladislaus at the age of 15 was briefly elected Russian Tsar by Russian boyars in 1610 during the Russian Time of Troubles following the death of Boris Godunov. His election was part of an unsuccessful plan by Sigismund to conquer all of Russia and convert the population to Catholicism. However he was never able to reign in Russia, as his support there was very temporary and depended on shifting internal politics among the boyars. He held on to the title without any real power until 1634. A boyar (also spelt bojar; Romanian: boier) was a member of the highest rank of the feudal Ruthenian (Russian) and Romanian aristocracy, second only to the ruling princes, from the 10th through the 17th century. ... // Events January 7 - Galileo Galilei discovers the Galilean moons of Jupiter. ...

Before he was elected king of the Commonwealth, he fought in many campaigns, including ones against Russians in 1617-1618 (the end of Dymitriads), Ottomans in 1621 (end of Moldavian Magnate Wars) and Swedes in 1626-1629. During that time, as well as during his voyage in Europe (1624-1625) he learned the art of war, and this was later to be reflected when he became king: military matters were always important to him. While not a military genius, and surpassed by famous Commonwealth contemporary hetmans like Stanisław Koniecpolski, Wladislaw was known as a fairly skillful commander on his own. Dymitriads (Polish Dymitriady) is the name for the series of wars (1605-1618) between the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and Muscovyn forces during the Russian civil war (known as the Time of Troubles (1606-13)).

The art connesseur

Wladislaus was also a connesseur of the arts and music. He sponsored many musicians and created the first amphitheater in the Warsaw castle, where during his reign dozens of operas and ballets were performed. He also collected paintings and invested in decorative architecture; among his most famous sponsored projects is the monument to his father, the Column of Sigismund which became one of the symbols of Warsaw. Wladislaw assembled an important collection of Italian and Flemish Baroque paintings, much of which were lost in the wars after his death. The name amphitheatre (alternatively amphitheater) is given to a public building of the Classical period (being particularly associated with ancient Rome) which was used for spectator sports, games and displays. ...

The successes

Wladislaw was elected to the Polish throne on his father's death in 1632. In an attempt to take advantage of confusion expected after the death of the Polish king, Tsar Michael Romanov ordered an attack on the Commonwealth. A Muscovite army (of approximately 34,500) crossed the Commonwealth eastern frontier in October 1632 and laid siege to Smolensk (which was ceded to Poland by Russia in 1618, at the end of the Dymitriad wars). In the war against Russia in 1632-1634 (the Smolensk War), Wladyslaw succeeded in breaking the siege in September 1633 and then in turn surrounded the Russian army, which was then forced to surrender on March 1, 1634. The resulting Peace of Polyanov (Treaty of Polanów), favourable to Poland, confirmed the prewar territorial status quo. Muscovy also agreed to pay 20,000 rubles in exchange for Wladyslaw's renunciation of all claims to the tsardom and return of the royal insignia, which were in the Commonwealth possession since the Dymitriads. It was during that campaign that Wladislaw started the modernisation program of the Commonwealth army, emphasising the usage of modern infantry and artillery. He also attempted to create a Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Navy to secure part of the Baltic Sea, although this plan never succeeded.

Following the Smolensk campaign, the Commonwealth was threatened by another attack by the Ottoman Empire. During the wars against Ottomans in 1633-1634 Wladyslaw moved the Commonwealth army south of the Muscovy border and forced the Turks to come to terms with him.

After the southern campaign, Commonwealth was threatened from the north. Sweden, weakened by involvement in the Thirty Years' War, agreed to sign the Armistice of Stuhmsdorf (Treaty of Szturmska Wieś) in 1635, favourable to the Commonwealth in terms of territorial concessions. Wladyslaw failed, however, to find any method for regaining the Swedish crown, which had been held and then lost by his father.

The king, while Catholic, was very tolerant and didn't support more aggressive policies of the Counter-Reformation.

The failures

Wladislaw used the title of the King of Sweden, although he had no control over Sweden whatsoever and never set food in that country. He would continue his attempts to regain the Swedish throne, with similar lack of results as his father. Sweden is a constitutional monarchy with a representative democracy based on a parliamentary system. ...


In internal politics he attempted to strenghten the power of the monarchy, but this was mostly thwarted by the szlachta, who valued their independence and democratic powers. Wladyslaw suffered continuing difficulties caused by the efforts of the Polish Sejm (parliament) to check the King's power and limit his dynastic ambitions. The Szlachta viewed Vladislaus' military dreams as an attempt to strenghten his position during war and thus the Sejm strongly opposed the majority of his plans for war (for example, with Sweden in 1635 or Turks in 1646), and usually thwarted them by denying the funds for military campaigns and withholding its cosignature on the declaration of war.

Many historians argue that Wladislaus was very ambitious and dreamed of achieving great fame through conquests, and in the latter years he planned to use the Cossacks to provoke the Turks into attacking Poland so that his military leadership would be indispensable. On various times he set his sights on regaining the Swedish crown, capturing the Russian throne and even conquering the entire Ottoman Empire. He was often able to convince the restless Cossacks to join his side, but with little support from the szlachta and foreign allies (like the Habsburgs), he constantly failed in those attempts, often resulting in unnecessary border wars and diluting the strength of the Commonwealth, which later proved fatal when the country was finally invaded by its neigbours.

Wladislaw died in 1648, a year after the death of his son, on the eve of the Chmielnicki Uprising and The Deluge. He failed to realize his dreams of conquest and he did not reform the Commonwealth. Wladislaw managed to avoid involving the Commonwealth in the bloody Thirty Year's War but his legacy would end the Golden Era of the Commonwealth. The Cossacks, angered because Wladislaw's promises to them failed to materialize, were beginning their greatest revolt against Polish rule, which would be exploited by Swedish invasion. // Events Peace treaty signed at Westphalia ends the Thirty Years War. ...

Poland - LoveToKnow 1911 (15908 words)
It was in the reign of Casimir IV.
Poland, as the next neighbour of Hungary, was more seriously affected than any other European power by this catastrophe, but her politicians differed as to the best way of facing it.
All the.more disquieting was the internal condition of the country, due mainly to the invasion of Poland by the Reformation, and the coincidence of this invasion with an internal revolution of a quasi-democratic character, which aimed at substituting the rule of the szlachta for the rule of the senate.
Wladislaus IV - LoveToKnow 1911 (720 words)
They had double reason to be grateful to Wladislaus for defeating the enemies of the republic, for he had also paid for the expenses of his campaigns out of his own pocket, yet he could not obtain payment of the debt due to him from the state till 1643.
He saw that Poland, with her existing constitution, could not hope for a long future, and he determined to bring about a royalist reaction and a reform along with it by every means in his power.
The whole enterprise fell through, owing partly to the death of Koniecpolski before it was matured, partly to the hastiness with which the king published his intentions, and partly to the careful avoidance by the Porte of the slightest occasion of a rupture.
