From Wikipedia:Naming conventions (royalty and nobility):

  • These following conventions apply to European monarchs since the fall of the Roman Empire..., because they share much the same stock of names. Hence, they also apply to Polish monarchs.
  • If a monarch or prince is overwhelmingly known, in English, by a cognomen, it may be used, and there is then no need to disambiguate by adding Country. Since cognomina of Polish monarchs are not well known in English, this exception does not apply to Poland.
  • Pre-emptively disambiguate the names of kings, queens regnant,... in the format "{Monarch's first name and ordinal} of {Country}", omitting the royal or imperial titles... This is an exception to the general rule of most common English name. Nevertheless, Monarch's first name and Country should both be the most common form used in current English works of general reference. Where this cannot be determined, use the conventional anglicized form of the name... Except for a few early monarchs of the House of Piast, Polish monarchs had Christian names with well established English equivalents.
  • Where a monarch has reigned over a number of states, use the most commonly associated ordinal and state. This applies not only to Polish monarchs who also reigned outside Poland (e.g. Wenceslaus II of Bohemia, Henry III of France), but also to high dukes of Poland of the fragmentation era who are better known as monarchs of their local, hereditary duchies (e.g. Conrad of Masovia).
  • European monarchs whose rank was below that of King..., should be at the location "{Monarch's first name and ordinal}, {Title} of {Country}". This applies to all those Polish monarchs who held a ducal title, but were never crowned as kings.
  • No family or middle names, except where English speakers normally use them. This also applies to kings who are popularly known by two given names (e.g. John I of Poland, not John Albert of Poland) and to elective kings who are popularly known by their family names (e.g. John III of Poland, not John Sobieski).
