World Events (6)

1806 · Greater Poland Uprising (1806)

The Greater Poland Uprising of 1806 occurred when Poles rose up against the occupying Prussian Forces. It was one of the most successful uprisings in Polish History and helped shatter the image of invincibility that the Prussian army had previously maintained. The following year, the Treaties of Tilsit resulted in the Kingdom of Prussia acknowledging the Duchy of Warsaw.

1815 · The Constitution of the Kingdom of Poland is Established

The Polish state, under command of Russia, commanded Emperor Alexander I to issue a new constitution. This would end up being one of the smallest Polish states to ever exist. The Tsar signed the document on November 27, 1815, without any voting procedure beforehand. The document itself contained 165 articles. The document originally promised freedom of speech and religion, but was modified over the next couple decades and eventually became far more traditional.

1830 · November Uprising

The Polish-Russian War of 1830 to 1831 was referred to as the November Uprising or the Cadet Revolution. Young Polish officers, under the influence of Piotr Wysocki, carried out an armed rebellion against the Russian Empire. The revolt initially had local successes, but the overall uprising was crushed by the massive Imperial Russian Army.
