Coat of Arms of the Lanckoroński family

Lanckoroński (plural Lanckorońscy) is a surname of Polish nobility. The Lanckoroński family was based in Kraków and Sandomierz, and representatives of the family held power and influence in the Kingdom of Poland from the times of the late Piast dynasty (14th century) to the end of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (18th century). The family used the Zadora coat of arms.

The family name comes from the village of Lanckorona, a site of a castle. The family had previously hailed from Brzezie (today a part of village Wodzisław).

In late 19th century, Count Karol Lanckoroński built a palace in Vienna, the Palais Lanckoroński.
