The Jewish King Of Poland

Saul Wahl's story is one of the most intriguing of all the legendary stories concerning Polish Jewry. It is said that he occupied the throne of Poland for a single day, August 18, 1587. During his brief time serving as Polish royalty, he supposedly enacted numerous laws protecting the Jewish population of Poland.

Nice and interesting legend.

I only wated to sugest that Poland have interesting history. King was chosen in elections and everybody could be king ... there was religious freedom and tolerance... what is more Poland was inspiration for authors of american constitution.

I see strong opposition (seanus, joe..)

Poland does have an interesting history, who can deny that?

The American Constitution gives the right to bear arms. Sorry, but that is just wrong in my book.

America is in crisise as whole west... like always people like you try to prove that has something to do with Jewish bankers.

Yes a lot of Jews are bankers...

Poland is nice example of democracy superiority. In 1500s Poland was strong (Jews Protestants Catholics were living together)

Later elites became stronger and system became weaker.

Poland was able to reform system Polish king was freemasson ;)

but our authoritative neighbours couldn't accept country with such rights because it would be a problem for their authorative rulers. (we are going back to world and stronger countries imposing their rules of game)

going back to system ... something what used to work in 1500s later stoped to work because power was transferred form middle class to small group of people on peak and they were native Poles. 3rd may constituion was good idea but it was to late and enemies were to strong ...

going back to USA ... they need reforms but whole idea good.

The arms of a bear aren't so bad are they? I wouldn't want to see a gun in its hand though.

I don't owe bank. :)

I work for Polish bankers - Zaleski family (Polish immigrants good chrisitian people ;) ), 5th place of the richest people in France. They decided to build new bank in Poland. I help them :)

You know Polish nobility tradtionaly had good relations with Jews ... all in all Jews were always colecting their taxes ;)

Well, Israel has a constitution, yes?...actually, no...But a non-Jewish Pole could certainly become Prime Minister there, if not King, right?...No?...Why?

How elites could become stronger with liberum veto around?

but our authorative neighbours couldn't accept country with such rights because it would be a problem for their authorative rulers.

On other hand they needed to bribe one nobleman to block developments they disliked.

Poland is nice example of democracy superiority.

3rd may constituion was good idea but it was to late and enemies were to strong ...

You are inconsistent here. 3rd May Constitution reduced 'democracy'.

Zalewski?...cousins of my mother are named Zalewski!...I will have to ask her about them since I haven't seen them for years...I didn't realize that there were really rich Zalewskis in France...Interesting...There was a great middleweight champion of the world from the US in the late 40's named Tony Zale (Zalewski)...He fought some brutally tough fights against Rocky Graziano back in the day.

Scotish anti-semite... live your own life.

Magnats were stronger in 1500s or 1700s ?

On other hand they needed to bribe one nobleman to block developments they disliked

When was the first time when veto was used in way that parlament couldn't continue it's work ? :)

You are inconsistent here. 3rd May Constitution reduced 'democracy'.

Why ? :) because it abolished liberum veto ?

zalweski is good name ... noble. As I know when you want to change your surname it is not possible to take: Radziwił, Zaleski etc...

Wasn't Jackie Kennedy's sister married to a 'royal' Radziwill?...and I think that the Radziwills had a friend named Stasiu Koslowski who was a good friend of Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones.

No,they all lived in the same country,hardly "together" though.....

Some lived 'together' and the others just lived together

It is redneck's version (Jewish, Catholic, Protestant)

How would it be possible when in some moments half of Polish parlament was protestant. To avoid this legendary Jewish king ;) how it would be possible when Jews formed some military units in Polish up-rises.

it is not true. esp, Polish nobility had close relationship with Jews... (Jews were colecting taxes etc.)
