Civilization VI: King Jadwiga Leads Poland

Jadwiga was the first female monarch of the Kingdom of Poland in the late fourteenth century and youngest daughter to Louis the Great.

Her reign began in 1384, with her early years being categorized by earning the respect and loyalty of Polish nobility, ruling side-by-side with Lithuanian king Wladyslaw II Jagiello. Jadwiga was an expert mediator, protected the poor, and was a devout Christian who later became canonized as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church in 1997. She founded a special college for Lithuanians in Prague but perhaps is best known for her work helping to restore the University of Krakow, which would go on to become the center of Polish culture.

Unique Unit: Winged Hussar

Winged Hussars were heavily armored cavalry units and core military representatives of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth between the 16th and 18th centuries. These soldiers carried a long lance and utilized a charge attack designed to dismantle enemy formations. 

Unique Building: Sukiennice

Sukiennice, otherwise known as Cloth Halls, are medieval buildings that served as trade centers for merchants dealing in cloth, leather, wax, salt and exotic imports like silk. The most famous cloth-hall still exists in Krakow today and dates back to Poland’s Renaissance period.
