Dzików Confederation

The Dzikowska Confederation (Tarnobrzeg) by supporters of Stanisław I during the War of the Polish Succession, under the leadership of Adam Tarło as Marshel, and Grand Hetman of the Crown Józef Potocki as commander of the army until 28 February 1735 when he was relieved of command.[1]

The watchword of the confederation was: "Fight with Saxony and Russia for political independence of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and carry out political reforms." They attempted unsuccessfully to gain Czech and Hungarian support, as well as from Silesian citizens. They also dispatched envoys to Sweden, France, the Ottoman Empire, and the Vatican.[2]

The confederation was defeated, with the last armed struggles taking place in 1736 near Kurpie and Podolia.[3]
