The patron of our journal is Stańczyk (c. 1480-1560),  the most famous court jester in Polish history, employed by three Polish kings: Alexander, Sigismund Old and Sigismund Augustus. He is remembered as a man of outstanding political intuition and intelligence with formidable insight into current and future geopolitical situation of Poland. He was criticizing and warning his employers by the use of satire and hyperbole.
