Hadwye (Polish: Jadwiga; Ungerish: Hedvig; 1373/4 - Meadowmonth 17, 1399) was the first woman kingly allthing of the Kingdom of Poland, leading from Winterfulth 16, 1384 until her death. She was the youngest daughter of Lewis the Great, King of Ungerland and Poland and his wife Elizabeth of Bosna. Hadwye was a belonger of the Mantle-House of Andegavland, but she had more near forebears among the Polish Piasts. In 1997 she was made a holyman by the Romish Broad-Church

In 1375 it was forethought that she would in time be wed to William of Eastrich, and she lived in Ween from 1378 to 1380. Hadwye's father is thought to have casted her and William as his chosen afterfollowers in Ungerland after the 1379 death of her eldest sister, Catherine, since the Polish highborn had that same year swore their troth to Lewis's twoth daughter Mary, and Mary's betrothed, Sigismund of Littleborough. However, Lewis died, and in 1382, at her mother's bestanding, Mary was crowned "King of Ungerland." Sigismund of Littleborough worked to get stewardship of Poland, but the Polish highborn answered back that they would be hearsome to a daughter of King Lewis only if she settled in Poland. Queen Elizabeth then chose Hadwye to lead there, but did not send her to Krakow to be kine-helmed. Bewhile the between-kingship, Siemowit IV, Heretog of Mazovland, became a runner for the Polish kingseat. The highborn of Greater Poland liked him most and foreput that he be wed to Hadwye. However, Lesser Poland's highborn were against him and talked Queen Elizabeth into bringing Hadwye to Poland. 

Hadwye was kine-helmed "king" in Poland's revetown, Krakow, on 16 Winterfulth 1384. Her kine-helming either showed the Polish highborn's withstander to her meant were William becoming king without further haggle, or underscored her rank as allthing-queen. With her mother's leave, Hadwye's bereders began to haggle with Jogaila, Great Heretog of Lithowen, who was still a heathen, about his maybe-wedlock to Hadwye. Jogaila underwrote the Foroning of Krevo, swearing to wend to Romish Broad-Churchdom and to boost the wending of his heathen folk. Meanwhile, William sped to Krakow, hoping to be wed to his childhood betrothed Hadwye, but in late Weedmonth 1385 the Polish highborn cast him out. Jogaila, who took the forwashed-name Waldemar, was wed to Hadwye on 15 Mudmonth 1386. Folktale says she only agreed to marry him after lengthy bede, seeking holy inblowing.  

Jogaila, now named Waldemar Strongrider, was kine-helmed King of Poland on Miremonth 4, 1386. As Hadwye's fellow-allthing, Strongrider worked near to his wife. After upstandy highborns of the Kingdom of Ungerland-Croatland had locked up her mother and sister, she strode into the Firstdom of Halychland-Volhynland, which had been under Ungerish law, and talked most dwellers into becoming folks of the Kine-helm of Poland. She foremiddled between her were's kin, and between Poland and the Teutonish Riders. After her sister Mary died in 1395, Hadwye and Strongrider led their rights to Ungerland against the widowed Sigismund of Littleborough, but the Ungerish lords did not back them up.
