Presidents of Krakow

It gave the townspeople the privilege of “neminem captivabimus” – immunity of personal inviolability granted by Władysław Jagiełło to the settled nobility, and the Act of 1791 extended this right also to townspeople living in royal cities. They could purchase land estates, their ennoblement was facilitated, and cities received autonomy. Presidents stood at the head of major cities. In accordance with this law, the first president of Krakow was the Pińczów bailiff, the owner of many real estates and plots of land in the city – Margrave Franciszek Wielopolski, followed by Filip Lichocki – an opponent of the Kościuszko Uprising. Currently, the president of Krakow is Jacek Majchrowski.
