This name derives from Old High German name “Haduwig”, composed of two Ancient Germanic elements: “*haþuz” (battle, fight) and “wīg” (fight, battle, fighter, able to fight), meaning “one who wants to fight”. 1) Saint Hedwig of Silesia (Polish: Święta Jadwiga Śląska), was Duchess of Silesia from 1201 and of greater Poland from 1231 as well as high duchess consort of Poland from 1232 until 1238. 2) Jadwiga was monarch of Poland from 1384 to her death. Her official title was 'king' rather than 'queen', reflecting that she was a sovereign in her own right and not merely a royal consort. She was a member of the Capetian house of Anjou, the daughter of King Louis I of Hungary and Elizabeth of Bosnia.
