Historical background



John III (2/06/1624-17/06/1696), son of Jacques Sobieski, Mary married in 1665 Casimire the Barn Arquien (1641-1716) sometimes had a very bad influence on him. He was elected King of Poland after his brilliant victory over the Turks at Khotine and succeeded Michel Wisniowecki in 1674. His victory at Kahlenberg 12 September 1683 freed Vienna besieged by the Turks. Presented as the savior of Christendom and the new Godefroy de Bouillon, he continued the fight against the Turks in Moldavia and Bessarabia, but had to abandon his claim to a large kingdom in Central Europe under Russian pressure, the Treaty of Moscow (1686). He tried to provide for his son Jacques-Louis (1667-1737), the succession to the throne of Poland. He failed in that undertaking. This is Frederick Augustus II of Saxony, who succeeded him on the throne, paving the way for a civil war that only ended with the partition of Poland. uses cookies to guarantee a better user experience and to carry out statistics of visits.
