    The ascension of King Louis the Great to the throne of Poland was not all it was cracked up to be. Instead, it was a middling affair that was eclipsed by the events it set up.

History of Poland

Very good, entertaining focus on the rulers, very little on the people or geography at least so far. I'm through episode 7.

A must for English speaking history enthusiasts

Like this podcast, I’ll be quick and simple, well as simple as Poland’s history. There is a plethora of both solid and questionable history’s for Poland following the 1700s. Everything before, is as elusive as a snow leopard to the english speaker. The gathering up of accounts, chronicles and sources used here make this podcast invaluable. Thank you Trevor Gilbert.

My only regret is that I had not found The History it Poland podcast before now. I am thoroughly enjoying catching up, all the same. Enjoy!
