The Princely House of Jablonowski
Copyright Rafal Heydel-Mankoo, 1999.
The editor of the new edition of the Almanach de Gotha invited me to contribute the entry for my grandmother's family. I agreed and include below the product of my efforts. As a non-Royal and non-Mediatised Princely House, the Jablonowskis enter as a Part III family. As such, the House appears in the second volume of the Almanach de Gotha. Unfortunately, the published entry contains several errors and ommissions. It is not to be regarded as accurate. The submission below is how the entry should have appeared.

Note: The Jablonowski Palace in Krakow located at 20 Rynek has been known by various names: Wodzicki, Zagorski, Jablonowski and Potocki. It is now owned by Count Jan Potocki but many people, including myself, still refer to it as the Jablonowski Palace. The Jablonowski and Wielopolski herbs are  still present surmounting the facade of the palace. Some of these links may refer to the Wodzicki or Potocki palace but they are all referring to the building at 20 Rynek.
