Avoriaz, décembre 2018
The Polish sovereign was bound for greatness from the very beginning. As the firstborn child of Kazimierz August Czartoryski and Simonetta ( née di Savoia ) Czartoryska, the esteemed King and Queen of Poland, it was simply expected of them. Their parents were ambitious, exacting, and somewhat traditional — while they demanded a great deal from all their children, they expected near perfection from the heir.
They ascended the throne a few years ago, after the unexpected death of their father. Despite the sudden nature of their enthronement, their reign has thus far been full of successes. The monarch is devoted, above all, to their family ( side note: this position comes with loads of built in connections ) and the nation — the only question is just how far they’re willing to go.
