However, Jadwiga (who was Hungarian but of the House of Anjou) apparently
brought some very western influences with her when she came to Poland; and
Jagiello brought some Lithuanian influences, it is said.
The most famous monarch issue in Poland is Queen Bona Sforza; she brought
Italian influence to the fore in Poland when she became queen. Most
instances of Italian influence in Polish culture are traced to the period
when she was queen, but since that was also the beginning of the 100 years
of serious grain trade between Poland and Italy, there may have been heavy
economic and trade influences as well.
