  Jagiellon Poland
The Jagiellon Era 1385-1572, was dominated by the union of Poland with Lithuania under the Jagiellon Dynasty, founded by the Lithuanian grand duke Jagiello.
By the end of the fifteenth century, representatives of the Jagiellons reigned in Bohemia and Hungary as well as Poland-Lithuania, establishing the government of their clan over virtually all of Eastern Europe and Central Europe.
In an era that favored the steady accumulation of power within the hands of European monarchs, Poland-Lithuania developed a markedly decentralized system dominated by a landed aristocracy that kept royal authority firmly in check.

 The Historial Setting: The Jagiellonian Era (1385-1572)
This farflung federation collapsed in 1526 when armies of the Ottoman Empire (see Glossary) won a crushing victory at the Battle of Mohács (Hungary), wresting Bohemia and Hungary from the Jagiellons and installing the Turks as a menacing presence in the heart of Europe.

Following the footsteps of the above-mentioned late Palaeolithic Era people, the territory of the present Aleksandrów District was becoming more and more often peopled by other groups of settlers whose settled mode of life resulted mainly from gradual warming up of the climate.
Land farming and animal breeding were the main occupation of the newcomers, but - according to archaeological sources - they also had the skill of making clay kitchen utensils, weaving and using a bow and arrow.

After massive expulsions of Jews from the Western Europe (England, France, Germany, and Spain), they have tried to find a refuge in the lands of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
