The Last Frontier of Fire and Sword - Chapter 896
This night, the gloom in Jan Sobieski’s mansion was bleak. Jan Sobieski and Natalie have not yet returned to the house, and the staff members have heard about what happened in the church from the servants who had returned to report.
These staff officers are all Polish, and they all have the status of nobles, they know what this means.
In the Republic, once an opinion or opinion forms a turbulent public opinion, it is hard to stop by any force.
Even the great nobles, although they can cover the sky in the parliament and achieve their goals by bribing and buying noble members, but when the small and medium nobles are united, they can only shout “My noble brothers.” Instead of contemptuously saying “those mud legs”.
Nowadays, making Alvar Chechen the King of Poland has formed a consensus among the small and medium aristocrats who participated in the memorial ceremony. This consensus will soon spread to every aristocrat who participates in the election of the king, and they will come together to become one. An irresistible force.
And whoever wants to block this power-if one hundred thousand nobles have one hundred thousand knives, then he will face this sea of swords and swords.
“It’s over, it’s all over.”
A young staff officer threw the plan in his hand to the sky.
This plan was his painstaking effort, but now these documents are worthless like waste paper.
Papers were flying all over the sky, and the staff squatted on the ground, tears in tears.
No one helped him, because everyone bowed their heads and felt the same.
For a while, the hall was filled with an atmosphere called despair.
“What’s wrong with you all!”
Suddenly, an impassioned voice came from the gate.
“Did you just give up like that? It’s like you gave up your king in the Battle of Matvi? Did we fail? No! Alvar Chechen did not succeed to the throne, and the results of the election did not come out. We are not without any chance. Think about it, everyone, at that time, our King Jan Kazimierz and Karl X were not evenly matched, and even Karl X had the advantage, but in the end, it was not the king who became the king. Are our benevolent monarchs?”
It’s Jan Sobieski.
At this moment, she and Natalie were walking in side by side.
Unlike Natalie, who was full of thoughts, Jan Sobieski was full of fighting spirit, as if everything that happened in the church had never happened.
“But… but public opinion.” A staff officer whispered.
“There is no public opinion.” Jan Sobieski cast a sharp glance at the staff officer. “Most people are ignorant. They are always blinded by what they see and don’t know what the country really needs. What is it. That’s why we need people who have a sense of the big picture to guide them.”
Then Jan Sobieski ordered the staff to do things like a commander.
“Piłsudski, you go to Henrik Potocki. Please be sure to persuade the others in the Potocki family to stand on our side.”
“Dominic, you go…no matter where you go, in short, wherever there are many nobles, go wherever you go, to promote the glorious achievements of the Duke of Duke Gan and his father, Prince Kongdai.”
“Mikhail, you go to Andrzej Kmicicz. He has a reputation and weight among the nobles. You ask him to contact the nobles who have a good relationship with him as much as possible, and keep them with us. “
Jan Sobieski issued instructions one by one, but these instructions were mostly clichés and not much new ideas. As for the staff named by Jan Sobieski, although they don’t feel that there is hope of a comeback now, they can’t bear to break this persevering republic after seeing Jan Sobieski’s full of fighting spirit. The marshal’s dream, so one by one ran out.
After issuing the order, Jan Sobieski and Natalie went up to the second floor. As soon as he entered the room, Jan Sobieski closed the door heavily.
As soon as the door was closed, Jan Sobieski asked Natalie in a deep voice: “Natalie, are you still supporting Duke Gan in your original intention?”
Natalie was still preoccupied, but when she heard Jan Sobieski’s question, the lady prince suddenly raised her head.
“Of course.” she said.
“Well,” Jan Sobieski laughed, “The situation has reached an extremely critical moment, and we may have to use the last resort.”
“Marshal, do you want it?” Natalie asked with a trembling heart.
She has a bad feeling.
Jan Sobieski nodded slightly and said his last resort.
In the history of the “Election of Kings” in the Republic of Poland, there have been cases of “two kings”.
On October 3, 1575, because the later King Henry III (the one who signed the Treaty of Henry) could not stand the constraints and gave up the Polish crown and fled back to France, the Archbishop of the Bolivian Republic Jacob Usanski held a meeting in Warsaw. The new parliament is intended to discuss the choice of the next king. Popular candidates at the time were: Sigismund II’s sister-Anna Jagiellon, Grand Duke Stefan Batore of Transylvania, Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II .
In addition, King John III of Sweden and Polish nobleman Jan Zemoyski are also candidates.
On November 8, 1575, the election officially began.
The elders of the Senate are more willing to support Maximilian II, while the House of Representatives composed of small and medium aristocrats is more biased towards Batore and Anna. After a long war of words, on December 12, at the instigation of the Pope, Ushansky unilaterally declared Maximilian II the King of Poland. But this move was immediately strongly opposed by the Polish nobles. The Polish nobles believed that Maximilian II could not really benefit the Bolivian Federation, and it was impossible for him to shift the focus of his rule from Shinra to here. As a result, Bartore, who has a more stable personality and shows good dominance, has won more and more widespread support in Shilachita.
At this time, the great nobleman Jan Zamoyski suggested that Stefan Batoré marry Anna Jagiellon, who was ten years older than him, as his wife, in order to gain an overwhelming advantage. Stefan Bartore agreed.
On April 18, Batore and his entourage left Transylvania and entered Krakow. On May 1, he married Anna Jagiellon and was crowned King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania.
The cooked duck flies, and of course Maximilian II will not let it go. He plans to attack Stefan Bartóré through military operations and put himself on the crown of the King of Poland.
As one of the greatest kings in Polish history, Stefan Bartóré was an easy man, and he easily resolved the offensive of Maximilian II.
In the current situation, Cheerchen already has an absolute advantage. If Duke Danggan wants to become a king, there is no other way but to use force.
Jan Sobieski is desperate, but Natalie has doubts.
After all, it was his husband; besides, the use of force to force Cheechen to withdraw from the election was a dangerous move, and if he could not, an unprecedented civil war would break out in the Republic.
Now that the Ottoman Turkish Empire is under pressure and Tsarist Russia is still eyeing the Republic, this is too risky.
“No, I can’t.” Natalie shook her head, “Marshal, the interests of the Republic are above all else.”
Natalie’s remarks are meant to remind Jan Sobieski to be too obsessed with letting Duke Gan come to power, but to put state affairs first.
Jan Sobieski said: “Natalie, you misunderstood. I am well aware of the serious consequences of the Republic’s civil war, and I will not let this happen. I just want you to lead the troops on the day when the election results are announced. Stop Cheerchen, and I will ask the bishop of Krakow that I have been acquainted with, and let him announce that Duke Gan will become the king of Poland. Cheerchen is not Maximilian II, and you are there. As long as the boat is done, he only has Give up one way.”
Natalie did not expect that Jan Sobieski would actually do this, and his thinking was clear, obviously not a temporary intention.
Thinking about his “useless” orders downstairs, Natalie sighed that Jan Sobieski’s heart was deep.
“Marshal,” Natalie asked Jan Sobieski to make a promise in an unprecedented manner: “You promised me, and you will never hurt Cheerchen.”
“I promise you, in the name of God,” Jan Sobieski assured.
After listening to Jan Sobieski’s assurance, Natalie also made up her mind.
“Okay, I promise you.” Natalie said with difficulty.
At the same time, Natalie kept telling herself that she did this not only for this country, but also for Cheerchen and the children of the two.
In the house of the Visnievitsky family, another conversation is also going on.
The conversation took place in the secret room of the mansion, and only two people participated. They are Princess Galisadai and Mihav Casimir Pachi.
Mihav Casimir Pachi is the great nobleman of Lithuania and the main supporter of Princess Galisaide and Prince Mihav. The first contact between Mihav Casimir Pachi and Princess Gallisaide began with the banquet in 1660. At that banquet, the relatives of Mihav Casimir Pachi were reprimanded by Andrzej Konetspolski as an afterthought. The Pachi family member hoped after returning to the family As the patriarch, Mihav Casimir Pachi sought justice for him.
Mihau Casimir Pachi immediately approached Princess Galisadai, but after a conversation, the two became good friends.
After this, Mihav Casimir Pachi joined the camp of Marshal Lubao Macki under the recommendation of Princess Garisadai, and became a member of the old school.
In 1665, Pavel Sapega, who was loyal to King Jan Kazimierz, died. The “Great Flood” also caused the formerly strong Lithuanian Sapega and Laziviu families to decline. With the decline of the Protestant power, a new group of Catholic aristocrats rose up, typically the Pachi family. By 1665, the Pachi family was almost dominant in Lithuania, and its influence even surpassed that of the Laziwiwu family. The Pachi family has influence throughout the ruling class of Lithuania. The chief military and political positions of Lithuania, governor of Werner, and bishop are all held by members of the Pachi family. In the Battle of Matvi, the Pachi family dispatched three thousand troops and made great contributions to defeating the king.
Similar to the conversation between Jan Sobieski and Natalie, the conversation between Princess Garisaide and Mihav Casimir Pachi was also about Chechen’s upcoming election as king.
Compared with the five short-bodied clan relatives, Mihavu Casimir Paqi is handsome. His face is square, with gray brown hair covering his eyebrows, and three strands of black beard drifting calmly.
Princess Galisadai wiped her tears with a handkerchief, and complained to Mihau Casimir Paqi: “My lord, it seems that we are still too innocent. Since that hateful Chechen has blasphemed Mihau The heroic spirit of the knight performed such a play in the church. Now all the small and medium-sized nobles are leaning towards him. Prince Mihav and I are afraid that we will fail you and the ardent hopes and help of the Lithuanian princes.”
After speaking, Galisadie wiped tears from her eyes.
Compared with the princess who seems to have given up hope ~www.mtlnovel.com~ Mihav Casimir Pachi still looks contented. He comforted Princess Galisadai and said: “His Royal Highness, don’t be pessimistic and desperate. Now that the results of the election have not come out, it is still unknown who will die.”
After speaking, Mihav Casimir Pachi looked around again, and then asked: “Where is your Royal Highness?”
“Mihavu is in the room. He was so mad at Alvar Chechen’s evil behavior that he couldn’t help himself.”
Mihau Casimir Pachi nodded in understanding. But in his heart, the Paige family patriarch was absolutely sure that Prince Mihav, who was so angry that he couldn’t be himself, should be on the belly of a maid who couldn’t be himself at this moment.
But it is this Mihav Wichnevitsky who can reassure himself. If it weren’t for the prince to be like this, he wouldn’t bother to support the hero’s descendants.
When Gary Said heard what Mihavu Casimir Pachi said, she rekindled hope. The princess has been around Yanush Laziviu, Jan Kazimierz, and Lubaumacki for so many years, in order to make his son stand out and revive his father in the Vichynevitsky family. This one, becoming the king of Poland is undoubtedly the most glorious thing.
“Lord Sir, do you have any other way?” Galisadai asked hopefully.
She knew Mihav Casimir Pachi’s resourcefulness, and he was the one who removed Boguslav from the candidate.
Mihavu Casimir Pachi leaned back on the sofa comfortably, with a smile on his face, as if enjoying the feeling of being asked by the princess for help.
After a while, he said: “There is a way, but the time is not yet ripe, and it will take a few more days to implement it. So your Royal Highness, please relax and sit at home with the prince in these few days, everything is mine. “
