1830 · November Uprising

Age 13

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.
1848 · Greater Poland Uprising (1848)

Age 31

Europe experienced a period of rebellions and political upheavals known as the Spring of Nations. During this time, the Greater Poland Uprising of 1848 began against Prussian forces. Much of the fighting was concentrated in the Greater Poland region, but some fights did occur inside of the Prussian Partition. The insurrection was ultimately unsuccessful for the Polish and resulted in many casualties on both sides. The Kingdom of Prussia had at least 500 deaths and over 640 Polish citizens were killed.
