Prince Jerzy Konstanty Czartoryski (1828—1912) was known both as a lover of music and theatre and a politician. He went into politics quite late, not until the second half of the 1860s. It was then that he was given the nickname of “Federalist Prince”. Jerzy Konstanty Czartoryski worked towards a closer cooperation between Poles and other Slavs in the Habsburg Monarchy, especially Czechs, and Ukrainians in Galicia. His endeavours in the 1870s were not particularly successful, but they earned him the position of a mediator between Poles and other Slavs in the Monarchy, which was frequently used in later years. The article identifies the sources of Jerzy Konstanty Czartoryski’s interest in Slav issues and presents his actions to support political cooperation among Slavs in the Habsburg Monarchy in the second half of the 19th c.
