“Był sobie król… Poczet Jagiellonów” under the patronage of KMLU  

The wspieram.to platform is currently promoting a crowdfunding campaign to publish the book Był sobie król… Poczet Jagiellonów [There was a king… The Jagiellonian Dynasty]. This is the second part of a series for young and adult fans of Polish history by Mariusz Wollny.The author is principally known for his series about detective Kacper Ryx, who tracked criminals in the sixteenth-century Krakow, and solved authentic criminal cases.

Był sobie król… [There was a king…] is, in turn, a three-volume popular series that presents history of Poland in an intelligible manner.These are books for a whole family, and books for life.They instruct and entertain by telling a story about our ancestors, starting from legendary times, and ending with the last kings.Without presenting unnecessary dry facts, while illustrated with brilliant pictures by Zuza Wollny, and enriched with many interesting curiosities, they prove our history can be not less fascinating than the best HBO or Netflix series.

The first two volumes were published several years ago by Bellona, and were completely sold out.After many years of fans’ pleading, Mariusz Wollny has decided to republish the series under the brand of his own micro-publishing house, JAMA.Late in the last year, with the help from readers, also through the wspieram.to platform, he managed to publish Poczet Piastów [The Piast Dynasty], while now is the time for the second part, Poczet Jagiellonów [The Jagiellonian Dynasty].
