Jan Ledóchowski presents a talk about the controversial role played by his ancestral uncle Stanisław Ledóchowski in the rebellion against the Polish King Augustus the Strong. At a time when Poland faced invasion by Swedes from the North, Turks from the South, and Russians from the East, Stanisław Ledóchowski led a rebellion against Polish King Augustus II the Strong, who had between 300 and 400 children, and whose Saxon armies were ravaging Poland from the West.

Jan Ledóchowski talks about the mistakes he believes we the Poles made, the terrible times that followed the glorious Battle of Vienna and eventually led to the partitions of Poland, and about the controversial role played by his ancestral uncle Stanisław, whom some considered a dreadful traitor and others the saviour of his country.
