  stanislaw leszczynski   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Stanislaw I Leszczynski (1677 - 1766) was king of Poland and Lorraine.
Born at Lemberg in 1677, was the son of Rafael Leszczynski, governor of Poznan Voivodship, and Anne Catherine Jablonowska.
Leszczynski was a young man of blameless antecedents, respectable talents, and ancient family, but certainly without sufficient force of character or political influence to sustain himself on so unstable a throne.

Leszczynski was awarded the Duchy of Lorraine and Bar (1737) by Francis I, the Holy Roman Emperor, in exchange for Tuscany and also received a pension from France.
Stanislaw was the brother-in-law of Michal and August Czartoryski and formed part of that powerful group aiming at reform, “the Family”.
On acceding to the throne Stanislaw Augustus attempted to show that he was no puppet by setting up a range of commissions and ministries aimed at improving the process of government, carrying out financial and educational reforms and establishing a military school (the Szkola Rycerska); it was obvious that a Polish revival was under way.

 The Order of the White Eagle by Rafal Heydel-Mankoo
Supported by Augustus’ foes, a rival by the name of Stanislaw Leszczynski had recently been crowned King of Poland and it is therefore not implausible that Augustus saw an Order as a tool he could use to obtain support and loyalty from members of the nobility.
Stanislaw Augustus, a former paramour of Russia’s Catherine the Great—and widely regarded as her puppet—invested 550 persons with the Order of the White Eagle.
Following King Stanislaw Augustus’ death in Russia in 1798, the Collar of the Grand Master of the Order passed to the Russian Imperial House and was soon worn by Tsarina Alexandra Teodora at Tsar Nicholas I’s coronation as King of Poland.
