Jadwiga, Queen of Poland, was born in 1373 and at the age of 11 she became the first queen in the history of the country. The church loved her for her piety, the people for her kindness, and the nobility for her meek disposition. Until the end of her life, she strengthened alliances with neighbors and protected Poland from enemies.

In 1384, two years after the death of her father, Jadwiga was elected to the kingdom by the archbishop of Krakow and crowned as “King of Poland”. Wishing to expand the borders of her country and carry her faith, she married the Lithuanian prince Jagiello on the condition that he and his people would accept Christianity for the sake of the union of Poland and Lithuania.

Jadwiga and Jagiello ruled together – and very successfully. They resolved a long-standing conflict with the Teutonic Order, persuaded cousin Jagiello to abandon claims to the Lithuanian throne, and in 1387 reclaimed part of the territories of Ruthenia. Jadviga also actively supported religious and scientific initiatives and funded the opening of colleges and universities.

Jadwiga died in 1399 in childbirth at the age of 25, but during her short life she managed to do a lot for Catholicism in Europe and the security of Poland. The Roman Catholic Church canonized her (declared a saint) in 1997.
