Description

Fascinating biography of the last King of Poland, and an account of a personal dream with all the elements of Grand tragedy. Young King Stanislaw Antoni Poniatowski was a perfect illustration of the contradictions of Europe's ideological and religious viewpoints: worshipped reason but was led by the heart. Stanislaw was eventually obliged to watch the destruction of his lifes work, and ultimately forced to abdicate, a broken man, deceived and disillusioned.show more
