Prince Seweryn Franciszek Światopełk-Czetwertyński (Polish pronunciation: [sɛˈvɛrɨn franˈt͡ɕiʂɛk ɕfjaˈtɔpɛwk t͡ʂɛtvɛrˈtɨɲskʲi]; b. 18 April 1873 in Warsaw – 19 June 1945 in Edinburgh, Scotland) was a Polish landowner and politician. He belonged to a cadet branch of the Czetwertyński family, historically one of the princely houses of Poland and Lithuania.
He went on to become a member of the Russian Duma in 1906 and the Sejm from 1919 until 1935. During World War II, he was a prisoner of Nazi Germany, and was interned at both the Buchenwald and Auschwitz concentration camps.
Married to Zofia Przeździecka, their son Wlodzimierz (1907-1965) and elder grandchildren were born in Poland, but during World War II, they fled to Britain, eventually taking up residence in North America.
