  • Battle Of GrunwaldThe Battle of Grunwald or 1st Battle of Tannenberg was fought on 15July 1410, during the Polish–Lithuanian–Teutonic War. The alliance ofthe Kingdom of Poland and the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, ledrespectively by King Władysław Jagiełło and Grand Duke Vytautas(Witold), decisively defeated the Teutonic Knights, led by Grand MasterUlrich von Jungingen. Most of the Teutonic Knights leadership were
  • killed or taken prisoner. While defeated, the Teutonic Knightswithstood the siege on their fortress in Marienburg (Malbork) andsuffered only minimal territorial losses at the Peace of Thorn (1411)However, the Knights never recovered their former power and thefinancial burden of war reparations caused internal conflicts and aneconomic downturn in their lands. The battle shifted the balance ofpower in Eastern Europe and marked the rise of the Polish–Lithuanianunion as the dominant political and military force in the region.If you interested of this battle you can find more informations onhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Grunwald Project: Patryk Szlęk
