Chapter 24 considers the emergence of the Jagiellons as a major European dynasty through Casimir’s marriage to Elizabeth Habsburg. It examines the election of their eldest son Władysław to the Bohemian and then Hungarian thrones. It outlines the growing threat of the Ottoman Empire and analyses the weak foundations of this dynastic ‘system’, from John Albert’s disastrous 1497 Moldavian campaign, to the failure of Casimir’s youngest son Sigismund I to support Władysław’s son Louis during the disastrous 1526 Mohács campaign, in the aftermath of which the Habsburgs succeeded the Jagiellons in Bohemia and Hungary. The chapter concludes by charting the effects of the revival of Muscovite power and the launching of a series of wars with Lithuania after 1492, in which the grand duchy lost one-third of its territory.
