Tombstone of King Ladislaus the Short3D Model
Full name: Tombstone of King Ladislaus the Short (Władysław I the Elbow-high)
The circumstances in which the gravestone of Ladislaus the Short was founded remain unknown. The artistic form of the tomb was mentioned for the first time as late as in Annals of the Famous Kingdom of Poland by Jan Długosz (1415–1480): “his body is buried in the cathedral church by the main altar, to the left, in a tomb of white marble adorned with sculptures and a canopy, in front of the altar of St. Ladislas, which the King ordered to be built and furnished.” The altar was actually founded by King Ladislaus the Short’s son – Casimir the Great – most likely soon after 1333.
