Jagiello asked why, and the knights answered that knights from other nations of Europe wished to participate in the crusade, and that honour should not be denied to them.Jagiello accepted that proposal, not out of consideration for the Order, but because these extra days would be useful for better preparing his army.
When Jagiello saw his cousin coming back to the battle, he released a contingent of his knights who had not yet seen battle, and when these fresh warriors joined the battle, the line of Crusaders was slowly driven back.
Jagiello ordered the wine to be poured on to the ground, because he did not want his men drunk, but to have power for the next day, when the flags of the Crusaders would fall on the earth, at the feet of the victors.

Jagiello was one of the 12 sons of the famous Duke Olgierd, who had incorporated much of Russia into Lithuanian lands.
Jagiello journeyed into Poland in January of 1386, under a safe-conduct from the ambassadors, and was joined by a growing entourage of important nobles and officials on the road to Cracow.

Jagiello comely answered: “I accept both swords, and the expanded field, but the coming of this day, I entrust to God.” With Jagiello’s defiance in their ears, the cavalrymen returned to their home army knowing their mission was a failure.
In this moment Jagiello sent a large force of warriors in his reserve along with the Lithuanians (who were coming back to the battle) to reinforce his main army.

Jagiello, meanwhile, was spinning off plots of his own: Jadwiga made a claim on the Hungarian crown in 1395 after her sister's death, and Jagiello made an alliance of mutual aid with King Wenceslas of Bohemia, an alliance that could only have been directed at Sigismund.
Jagiello's policies were difficult to predict--he was a taciturn, even dour man, who neither bragged or mused in public--but there was a consistency to the pattern of his actions that indicated he had clear and achievable goals in mind, even if they could not be realized immediately.
Strengthened in his resolve, Jagiello assumed the role of king/regent, telling his supporters that he would be an active ruler in Poland's interests, assuring his enemies that he was only governing on behalf of his daughter, the heiress to the late queen.

Jagiello is confirmed as King; the Gd Duchy is specified as a personal domain fiefed to the Jagiellon family, but subject to the Polish Crown, a status confirmed by both the Lithuanian and Polish szlachta (Wilno, January 1401 & Radom, March 1401).

Only Jagiello's vanguard was in any sort of order, and the position could have been serious: a Teutonic attack did not, however, materialise, and Jagiello refused to be dissuaded from his prayers.
As he lay, winded Jagiello smashed his bascinet, so that the Knight's face was exposed, and before any further action could be taken, the infantry had fallen on the Knight, killing him and stripping the corpse of his white tabard, golden belt and fine armour.
Jagiello's son, Casimir IV, presided over the Peace of Torun in 1466 by which time the Order ceased to be independent and the Grand Master became a Polish vassal.

 Pharmakon
One of the coalition’s original grant initiatives was to establish a comprehensive pharmacy program, and Jagiello, who had previously run a free diabetes clinic with her husband, William Jagiello, LA’73, suggested that the partnership start a full-fledged pharmacy.
Jagiello worked with Drake Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice June Johnson to present a business plan to the partnership in May 2003, and on April 1, 2004, the Community Access Pharmacy opened in a former gas station-cum-doctor’s office near Des Moines’ Broadlawns Hospital.
As an example, Jagiello pulls a bottle from the shelf of the 340B inventory (which must be kept separate from the regularly priced inventory) that would normally cost $600 but cost the Community Access Pharmacy only a penny.

In a new agreement made with King Wladyslaw Jagiello at the end of 1400, Vytautas, realizing that Lithuania could not stand alone, accepted the idea that she would remain permanently under the Polish crown but as a restored unit of her various lands.
Under the supreme command of Jagiello, and in spite of a withdrawal of the Lithuanian wing at the beginning of the battle, it ended in a complete defeat of the Order, whose grand master, Ulrich of Jungingen, was killed in action with most of his knights.
At the same time Jagiello and Vytautas, at the request of the moderate wing of the Hussites who wanted one of them to accept the royal crown of Bohemia, were interfering with the internal troubles of that Slavic neighbor country which was included in the German Empire.
