What about Polish history. Are you an expert looking for a commission, Embarassed or are you some one seeking the illustrious help of some one in the know. Shocked Either way you are unlikely to get a decent reply to your post unless you are more forth comming. Rolling Eyes

I will tell you something quite nice about Polish History and Romanian History...

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ro/3/3e/Palatul_Culturii_Iasi_-_Aerial.jpg

This picture show "Palatul Culturii" (Palace of Culture) in Iasi, Romania. Do you see the statue in the front? "The guy" was the greatest ruler of the land: Stefan cel Mare (let's translate it as "The Great Stephan" - 45 years without ottomans in the country - this was really great).
This Stefan cel Mare is in ALL Romanian history books and also in our churches: we consider him a saint...

Because my grandfather was a priest and because I lived more than 7 years in this town, Iasi, I heard about the rumors: in that statue, is not Stefan... in that statue is... JAN SOBIESKI (John III) !
The real Stefan is in Krakow, Poland, the real Jan Sobieski from Krakow is in Iasi, Romania.
The rumor exist because our statue represent a catholic guy (don't ask me how can you know that by looking at a statue) and our religion is orthodox... and there is the rumor that Polish and Romanians ordered the statues in the same time to the same guy... and was a mix-up in transport. Smile

Here are some pictures of that two heroes (since I know, Sobieski was / is a real hero in Poland)...
