I made a distinction about electing foreigners to be Polish Kings, and it was precisely because someone like Sobieski had such power from the admiration of the people, and even of the Germans that the powerful families of Poland began to choose foreign kings--they didn't want to be challenged by someone who could appeal to popularity. It is utter bullshit that Russia was meddling in Polish affairs when Augustus of Saxony was elected. At that time Karelia, Ingria and Livonia were in Swedish hands, and the rest of the Baltic littoral was under Swedish hegemony. The Russians weren't interfering in Polish affairs because it was not until after the Great Northern War that Russia had a contiguous border with the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth. It was not until the Russians were defeated at Narva, recovered and went over to the offensive that Russian cavalry began to launch raids into Livonia. You can't live in some dream world in which everything Polish is good and pure and everything Russian is evil and foul just because you don't want to face the facts of your own people's history.
You continue to make **** up. Your narrative is all over the road. The Thirty Years war took place long after the Vasa dynasty was founded, and it didn't "destroy" Germany. Gustav Vasa, the founder of the dynasty may originally have been a Catholic, but then, everyone in Sweden when he took the throne was at least nominally a Catholic. But, in fact, he cemented his power with the Swedish people by assuring the establishment of Lutheranism. And Gustav Vasa became King in 1523, 95 years before the Thirty Years War began.
The brief Polish occupation of Moscow was a joke, the last gasp of a dying power. The Polish puppet Tsar was soon defeated, and stuffed into a cannon on the walls of the Kremlin, and shot back toward Poland. In the following year, 1613, the Boyars chose Mikhail Romanov to be Tsar, and he agree only on condition that he could choose his successor. When his son Alexei reached adulthood, Mikhail convened the Boyars again, and secured their acceptance of his succession, thus establishing the Romanov dynasty, the last imperial dynasty of Russia. The Russians immediately did not
march out to attempt to "obliterate" Poland--all that Mikhail and Alexei did was drive the Poles from Russian land--boo hoo for you.
The arrogance and hubris of Polish aristocrats erased your kingdom, you can't dance and sing and whine to your heart's content, but your nobility brought down up the Polish people all the miseries of the last 300+ years, from the Great Northern War onward. It is pure historical bullshit to attempt to blame this on the Russians, or claim that it was the result of the policy of a Vasa king, a king, by the way, elected by the Poles.
I'm glad that you have me on ignore, because i am so sick of your bullshit. But other people need to get a more balanced treatment of Polish history, and anyone else of Polish descent who had the misfortune to read your threads needs to know how the rapacity and arrogance of a handful of powerful Polish-Lithuanian families destroyed Poland.
