Supreme National Committee in 1914

Naczelny Komitet Narodowy (Supreme National Committee, NKN) was a quasi-government for the Poles in Galicia, Austro-Hungarian Empire, from 1914-1917. Created on 16 August 1914, it replaced the Komisja Tymczasowa Skonfederowanych Stronnictw Niepodległościowych and the Centralny Komitet Narodowy, gaining support from Polish conservatives and national democrats, but over time it had lost much of its early support, especially due to its strong pro-Austrian stance. It was eventually replaced by Regency Council in 1917.
