Princess Anna Leszczyńska nee Jabłonowska (1660–1727) was a Polish noble lady and the mother of King of Poland Stanisław I Leszczyński.[1]

Life[edit]

She was the daughter of Hetman Stanisław Jan Jabłonowski and Marianna Kazanowska. In 1676, she married the Grand Treasurer Rafał Leszczyński, son of Deputy Chancellor Boguslaw Leszczyński.

Her son Stanisław Leszczyński became King of Poland and reigned from 1704 until 1709 and from 1733 until 1736. During his first reign her brother Jan served as Crown Chancellor. Through her son she was the grandmother of Maria Leszczyńska, queen of France as wife of Louis XV and therefore the great-great-grandmother of Louis XVI, Louis XVIII and Charles X.[2]
