Portrait of Queen Jadwiga of Poland
1900, Antoni Piotrowski
She was monarch of Poland from 1384 to her death. Her official title was ‘king' rather than 'queen', reflecting that she was a sovereign in her own right and not merely a royal consort. [x]
I also recommend Polish history blog, the Historia-Polski, if you are interested in her history.

What you have inherited from your ancestors, you must earn before you can own. The most precious possession in this world though - is its own people. And for these people - and for this nation, we have to struggle and fight. And never to languish; and never to weaken; and never to give up; and never to despair.
