Truce of Łęczyca

The Truce of Łęczyca was signed during the Polish–Teutonic War (1431–1435) between the Kingdom of Poland and the Teutonic Order in Łęczyca on 15 December 1433[1] (this has also led some Polish historians to divide this Polish–Teutonic War into two wars, in 1431–1433 and in 1435).[2] The Teutonic Knights, pressured by the citizens of their lands, agreed to the 12-year old truce[3][4] to other Polish demands, including that the Order would cease support to Švitrigaila (a Lithuanian noble who attempted to break the Polish-Lithuanian union with the aid of the Order); in addition each side would control the territories it occupied until a peace would be signed (uti possidetis), and no party would seek mediation of foreign powers to change this truce.[5][6] This marked the end of the war on Polish territories; the struggle on Lithuanian lands would continue for two more years[4] (as the truce with Poland did not extend to the Livonian Order).[5]
