(p.91) 9 Vilnius-Radom
The Oxford History of Poland-Lithuania

Robert Frost

Oxford University Press

Chapter 9 considers the union of Vilnius-Radom, the agreement which marked an important stage in the establishment of a working relationship between Jagiełło and Vytautas. It considers the effects of the Vorskla battle, and of the death of Jadwiga in childbirth. It analyses the consequent dispute over the nature of Jagiełło’s claim to the Polish throne, and his second marriage to Anna of Celje. It concludes with a detailed examination of the text of the Vilnius-Radom treaty, and a consideration of its significance for developing views of the nature of the Polish monarchy, and of the union with Lithuania. In particular it considers the definition of the nature of the legal relationship established between Jagiełło and Vytautas.

Keywords:   Treaty of Vilnius-Radom, Jagiełło, Vytautas, Jadwiga, Queen Regnant, Anna of Celje
