Coat of Arms of Poland-Lithuania

The Kings of Poland-Lithuania are normally dated from the legendary founder of Poland, Lech. however the country spent many centuries fractured under the rule of various dukes. This list therefore begins with the reunification of the state under Przemysl II in 1295. For many years the crown was elected and any noble, Polish, Lithuanian or foreign was eligible. Although most noble privileges were revoked in the 17th century many subsequent heirs were vetoed by the Sejm.

As there is no provision in the Polish-Lithuanian constitution for the role of 'Queen' the four women who have been head of state over the years have all been crowned 'King'.
