[edit] Biography

Cecilia Renata was Queen of Poland and consort to the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth's King Władysław IV Waza. In Poland, she is also known as Cecylia Renata Rakuszanka and Cecylia Renata Austriaczka, both names meaning Cecilia Renata of Austria, or Cecylia Renata Habsburżanka, meaning Cecilia Renata of Habsburg.

Born in 1611 in Graz, she married Władysław on 13 September 1637, and the same day was crowned at St. John's Cathedral in Warsaw. Young and energetic, she soon began organizing the royal court to her liking. She was popular, especially for her politeness — one nobleman wrote in his memoires that she insisted other women sit with her, even though she was queen. She advocated the Habsburg and pro-Catholic point of view and allied herself with the pro-Habsburg faction of chancellor Jerzy Ossoliński and pro-Catholic Albrycht Stanisław Radziwiłł. Her political opponents at the court was the faction of Adam Kazanowski, whose influence over king Władysław, his childhood friend, diminished after her marriage. Kazanowski was allied with Chancellor Piotr Gembicki, who thus became one of her opponents.

Her influence was strong for the first 2–3 years of marriage, and she had much to say about the royal nominations for important official positions. However after 1638/39 when Władysław realised that Habsburgs were prepared to give him little assistance, her power waned, as he started to disregard her advice.

Her two children died in childhood (Zygmund Kazimierz: 1 April 1640 – 9 August 1647; Maria Anna Izabella: 8 January 1642 – 1643). Cecilia Renata died in 1644[1] in Vilnius.

Königin Cäcilia Renata

Cäcilia Renata von Österreich (* 16. Juli 1611 in Graz; † 24. März 1644 in Krakau) war Königin von Polen und Großfürstin von Litauen.

Sie war die Tochter von Kaiser Ferdinand II. und dessen Gemahlin Maria Anna von Bayern und wurde in Graz streng katholisch erzogen. Sie war lebenslustig und intelligent und wurde am 13. September 1637 in Krakau mit dem polnischen König Władysław IV. Wasa verheiratet, dessen Mutter Anna von Österreich zugleich eine Schwester ihres Vaters, also ihre Tante, war.

Aus der Ehe gingen zwei Kinder hervor, die jedoch beide das Erwachsenenalter nicht erreichten:

   * Prinz Sigmund Kasimir (* 1. April 1640; † 9. August 1647)
   * Prinzessin Maria Anna Isabella (* 8. Januar 1642; † 7. Februar 1642)

Der König hatte nicht viel Sympathie für Cäcilia Renate und er machte ihr das Leben am Krakauer Hof nicht leicht. Sie starb im Kindbett bei einer Totgeburt im Jahre 1644 und wurde in der Krypta der Wawel-Kathedrale beigesetzt. Bei seinem Besuch in Krakau stiftete Kaiser Franz Joseph I. Geld für die Renovierung ihres Sarges.
