1848 · Greater Poland Uprising (1848)

Age 4

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.

1857 · Hotel Europejski is Opened

Age 13

The Raffles Europejski Warsaw, known as The European Hotel, is a famous luxury hotel in the center of Warsaw, Poland. Upon opening in 1857, it was considered one of the most luxurious and modern hotels in Europe. The hotel suffered serious damage during World War II, but was rebuilt for a grand reopening in 1962. The location remains an iconic vacation spot to this day.

1863 · January Uprising

Age 19

The Polish citizens of the Russian Partition launched an insurrection against the Russian Empire on January 22, 1863. The inciting event of the rebellion was the proposal of a draft to force young Polish activists to serve twenty years in the Imperial Russian Army. Although the protest began with primarily with the youth, they were eventually joined by high-ranking officers and political members. Unfortunately for the Poles, they were disorganized and quickly outnumbered. The Russian Empire carried out retaliation in the form of deportations and public executions. The Poles were soundly defeated, suffering between 10,000 to 20,000 casualties.

Name Meaning

The usual English form of the old Roman family name Antonius, which is of uncertain (probably Etruscan) origin. The spelling with -th- (not normally reflected in the pronunciation) represents a learned but erroneous attempt to associate it with Greek anthos ‘flower’. In the post-classical period it was a common name, borne by various early saints, most notably a 3rd-century Egyptian hermit monk, who is regarded as the founder of Christian monasticism.
