Wojciech of Jastrzębiec (c. 1362–1436) was a Polish mediaeval politician and religious leader. A bishop of Cracow and Poznań, he also held prominent posts at the court of the king Władysław II of Poland.
Initially a chancellor to king Jadwiga of Poland and one of the advisors to the king Władysław, on 26 April 1399 he was ordained an archbishop of Gniezno and hence Primate of Poland. However, he gave up that post on the king's insistence.
