Aleksander Benedykt Sobieski

Aleksander Benedykt Stanisław Sobieski (6 December 1677 – 16 November 1714) was the son of John III Sobieski, King of Poland, and his wife, Marie Casimire Louise de la Grange d'Arquien.

He was a candidate for election to the Polish throne in 1697, following his father's death, but was unsuccessful. In 1702, he declined Charles XII of Sweden's offer to set him up as a rival king to Augustus II of Poland. He died in Rome in 1714, having recently become a Capuchin friar.

In Rome he helped a Czech-Slovak portrait painter Ján Kupecký to become famous.
