Polish political magazine wishes to re-establish the monarchy in Poland

The Polish political magazine, Polonia Christiana, published in its latest edition a longer article where they argue to reintroduce the monarchy in Poland. The magazine also criticised the Republic of Poland’s political system.

In Poland today there are a number of different monarchist movements, and some of these have the support of some elected MPs. Polonia Christiana does not state which royal family they support to take the throne.

From the royal dynasty of Saxony, there are two pretenders to the Polish throne. They are Prince Rüdiger of Saxony and Alexander, Prince of Saxe-Gessaphe, who are disputed, and both claim the title Margrave of Meissen.

Poland’s last time as a monarchy, it had three other families as well as the monarchy. These are the royal families of Poniatowski, Wettin and Leszczyński. Both Prince Rüdiger and Prince Alexander are the pretenders of the Wettin Royal Family. The Poniatowski family and the Leszczyński family also have their claim to the throne, but are far less organised as a royal family and are involved very little politically in the monarchist movement in Poland.

Polonia Christiana is published twice a month and is regarded as a conservative Catholic journal that collaborates with other similar journals in Catholic nations, including in Italy. The journal usually comments on politics in Poland which are associated with the church, history and Poland from a European perspective.

The most prominent monarchist organisation in Poland today is “The Conservative Monarchist Club.” It was founded in 1988 in the form of a society; it considers itself a successor to the Conservative Monarchist Club originated in Kraków, 1926, which in turn succeeded the Conservative Party founded in 1922.

    It’s a nice idea, it’d probably improve tourism and maybe even boost a bit of a sense of polish historic identity but it’s still pretty unlikely to happen

    Unless I’m mistaken, the old Rzeczpospolita always elected its kings.

    • Pawel66

      Absolutely true! Polish Kings were elected, starting from XIV century.

    Catholic-inspired, conservative, Monarchist movements are spreading. The one in Brazil is growing exponentially. There are those of Orthodox countries as well, like Georgia, Romania and Russia. I suspect it is a reaction to liberalism and Islamism.

  • Pawel66

    Poland had the oldest Presidency system in the world. Since 1395, Polish Kings were elected.
    As much as I like the Brits, Poles are not monarchist….

      In college, I was told by one of my professors that the Polish monarchy was declared to be hereditary just before the final partition of Poland. That would make the Head of the House of Poniatowski the rightful claimant.

    We Brazilian, catholic and monarchts, we want see a Kingdon of Poland. Not a maçonic republic.

    This is great! but isn’t Jesus Christ the King of Poland?
